ACE is an agency that provides certification in various areas. Go to the website and select the certification you would like to take: personal training, group exercise, etc. Find the closest site where the certification is offered. Sign up. Go take the test.
There are a few things you will need first: CPR certification for example. You are also well advised to purchase some of the study materials. Even if you are working in the industry, it will help you to prepare and make sure you are not missing something.
I know it is offered outside the U.S. but I do not know whether they offer the test where you are. You should get in contact with ACE to ask:
