Q:

None of the online links to find out more information from the program will go through. What is the shortest amount of time you can complete this program in? You never show up in person? Only online?

A:

Sorry for the trouble. The website can be found here.

According to the merchant's website, you have six months from the date of purchase to take your exam. Each exam package includes taking the exam one time, online with a live proctor. All you will need is a computer with reliable internet access and a webcam. NCCPT will email you detailed exam instructions including your Exam User ID.

Q:

Is this legit? Could I go to work at a national fitness chain after this as a personal trainer? Will health clubs recognize a course done online?

A:

Hi Teryl. According to the merchant's website, there are several hundred certifications available in the United States. At this time there is no government agency that accredits or regulates Personal Training. For this reason, clubs and/or organizations have no legal responsibility to acknowledge or recognize any certification, unless they want to. Thank you for your question.
