I am seeing a lot of message boards that appear to be EXACTLY the same info about someone taking or scheduled to take a test with reponses by people saying that they are questioning the authenticity because they failed or sre not smart enough. I don’t care about pass or fail. I am wondering who this group is. If I google them THE ONLY THING that comes up are the message board threads and scam reports. Obviously this is a red flag, but maybe I am missing something? Is anyone actually employed by them? Why can I find nothing about them online?
I am also wondering about NHE. I just had my interview with them and they now want me to take the exam. Supposedly you have to pay for the study guide but it’s not required. So far I’ve seen one comment from someone that actually worked there at one time, can anyone else tell me anything about them?
If you are ACE certified, you have to believe that the NCCA seal means something, otherwise you have a piece of junk paper on your wall. The fact is, passing the ACE exam means absolutely nothing. Why? Because thousands of high school drop-outs also possess an ACE certification. Designing an exam that only requires a person to be 18 years old, read a kindergarteners exercise book and get CPR certified was a horrible business model. Why do you think people with no formal education in this field flock to ACE?
Everyone says NHE makes it too difficult to obtain a certificate but I don’t care about some irrelevant ÔÇÿaccreditation’ that means nothing to anyone. If every company in the business of certifying trainers made it difficult to get certified, we wouldn’t have as many under-qualified personal trainers. Who is the NCCA? They are no where to be found. With IDEA, you can attend conventions, seminars and other sponsored events. NCCA is just a pay to play scheme where all that matters is that you pay your fees.
I look at some of the pictures of the few who complain about NHE and I’m not sure I would hire them as my trainer. They don’t look like they even work out. I think it’s a good idea to start with yourself before trying to help someone else get in shape. It’s seems very disingenuous.
