I’ve researched many companies, because I want to get my PT certification and had decided to use ISSA. Maybe I should reconsider, because I noticed a great gym online that needs a Front Desk Coordinator. Have the experience to qualify for this position as a start, but they only hire PTs who have cert. accredited by NCCA.
this is a question that only ISSA can answer. The NCCA accreditation process has certain standards which ISSA may not meet.
While ISSA has a good personal trainer certification which will give you a lot of practical knowledge, it may be worth looking at another certification. As you noticed, this will make you more marketable.
