Before accepting an application from a trainer, they must prove they have a current CPT certification. Two trainers, said they have their CES from National Academy of Sports Medicine and so let their CPT expire. They said they no longer want to spend the money to keep renewing and pay all they need to for CEU’s. What do you think? Agree or not and why.
there are many professions that require CECs and re-certifications on a regular basis, personal trainers being one of them. It is part of the profession. Inconvenient and expensive – yes. Optional – no.
