That depends on the requirements of the certifying organization. ACE is 20 hours of continuing education contact time over two years, ACSM is 40 hours over three years, and so on. (I could be off on these so double check them.)
If you want to have a truly one of a kind CEC experience, come to the Big Island of Hawaii for your CECs. Check out my website at www.hawaiifitnessacademy.com .
