Most definitely. I had several things on my profile that took some time to get verified. But I just kept trying to get them verified. Eventually they all did get verified, not sure how or why.
But several people have contacted me through the fitness connect system. None of them mentioned the “unverified” status certifications. I actually asked the ones that have become clients if that was a worry for them. All said “no”, they assumed it was some sort of IDEA issue, not that the certs weren’t valid.
