Hello everyone; I looked into why my nutrition specialty certification is not verified on my IDEA page. IDEA and ACE tell me it is because there is not a specific cert number assigned to the course. ACE tells me if enough personal trainers request that our specialty certs be verified, they will accommodate us. Thank you.
they absolutely should! I have two ACE specialty certifications, and both are verified here at IDEA. If they have been able to do it in my case, then they must do it for anybody else.
When I received my ACE Orthopedic cert, I had to call IDEA and have them manually verify it with my ACE number. I’m not sure why it wouldn’t take electronically, but I thought it was more of a computer glitch than anything else. IDEA was very accommodating. They should update it for you–I had no problem. Not sure why we would need to band together as it should be an automatic.
(Now if only AFAA would verify… I’ve had my group cert/kickboxing cert for so many years and it still shows as pending! Sigh…) 🙂
