Interesting move. NASM has always been regarded as top-notch. I hope the purchase is good for AFAA.
That is very interesting. I can find nothing on the web site of either one about this. AFAA has been around for a long time, but I always found the decision not to set themselves up for NCCA accreditation as a little counterintuitive. One large place I worked actually stated in their employee handbook that they required a group ex certification that was NCCA accredited, or AFAA. So I guess even though the NCCA accreditation seems to be becoming common, AFAA was known enough to be given a pass.
It would be interesting to have the back story. Thanks for posting.
