Derrin, this is straight from the FiTOUR website:
Why are your courses not approved by ACE?
As of January 1, 2009, ACE has changed their policy for ACE approval. ACE will no longer approve any courses that are not accredited by NOCA. FiTOUR is currently accredited by the American Council on Fitness Education, as well as, is seeking accreditation from other more appropriate organizations than NOCA. As a long time ACE partner, it is unfortunate that ACE has made this policy change but continue our crusade to provide quality, affordable fitness education to our industry.
Are FiTOUR Certificaton courses accepted at all fitness facilities?
Although FitOUR is a Nationally Recognized certification organization, this decision is made by each individual fitness facility. Please check with the fitness facility you plan to work with prior to choosing your certification organization.
