AFAA certification is not for me

by Crista Tsoukalas
(Pelham, NH)

You helped me realize that AFAA is definitely NOT the way to go. I have basically narrowed it down to ACE and ACSM. I do not have an undergrad in anything health related (I have a bachelor's degree in business and tons of group ex certifications) so I am thinking that maybe ACE is the way to go? ACSM is significantly tougher than ACE, right? Plus ACSM doesn't seem to have the best study materials. Hmmmmm...I am so confused! Also, do you know of any good nutrition certificates that I could pursue that would actually carry some weight?

Your website is very helpful!

You can get an Associates
by: J. Delph

Though the right to call yourself a dietitian or nutritionist varies from state to state you can get an Associates from Central Arizona College, which is all online. You can call yourself a Dietetic Technician with this degree or you could even go on to get a B.S. It depends on the state. In Arizona is there no board that regulates this, but in most states there are regulations given for people who give out dietary information.
