ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for your question. This course is designed to serve facility owners and front desk staff who may not be certified ACE pros, therefore, no CECs are given. However, this is a great course to serve as education on how facility employees should interact with members interested in  health and fitness. I hope this answers your question.
