ACE vs. ACSM and NSCA
I am getting re-certified through a new organization, upon learning that my previous (expensive) cert. isn't valuable outside of my previously small city. I do not want to make the same mistake again. Everyone tells me something different, they each suggest a different certification. I would like to get ACE certified for economical reasons, but have been told that it is not nearly as respected as ACSM and NSCA. I have even heard "stories" about people that couldn't get hired with an ACE certification. I just wanted to see if anyone had some good news for me; I would really prefer to get ACE certified, but don't want to do it if it's not respected in the same fashion as other certs. Any knowledge on the subject would be helpful.
