Industry FACT

ACE Professional Benefits

Why should you keep your ACE certification current?

You Hold an NCCA-accredited Certification

The NCCA establishes standards of excellence for certification programs and awards accreditation to programs for registered dietitians, registered nurses, medical assistants, occupational therapists and other professions. Employers and the public are increasingly aware of the difference between credible certifications and non-accredited certifications. ACE Certified Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors and Medical Exercise Specialist are placed on the U.S. Registry of Exercise Professionals (USREPS), alongside colleagues from participating NCCA-accredited health and fitness organizations. USREPS is an internationally recognized registry for qualified fitness professionals in the U.S., created so that the public and employers may verify those professionals.
