Hi Mary Ann. Hopefully by now you are a fully-certified and practicing senior wellness professional. Congratulations if you are. I wanted to weigh-in on your question because I think that it’s a great one that gets to the heart of why any of us chooses the specific certification that we end-up with? I think that the answers that you’ve received here are ‘right on.’ This decision often comes down to which is better recognized by the employers and industry leaders in a particular field, or which has better ‘back-end support’ for its members, or cost, or ease of entry… So many factors for each of use as trainers to consider that “best” takes on a very fluid meaning.
I try to consider what factors are most important to you as a trainer and then do some comparison shopping before deciding.
Again, I hope that you’re now certified as a senior trainer, but if not, good luck in your search!
I hope that this helps.
