Discount CEUs for Personal Trainers

CEUs and CECs represent a big cost to personal trainers. Find out how to get the most credit for your buck.

Now that every certification program is requiring Continuing Education Units (CEU) or Continuing Education Credits (CEC), its time to evaluate the best deals out there.

This topic has grown in importance as many certification require recertification every two years instead of three or more years. It pays to understand the recertification requirements to ensure that you can comfortably achieve them.

What to look for in a CEU?

Just because you find discount CEUs doesn't mean you found a good deal. You should check and see if those CEUs will apply to your certification. Some certs are more picky than others.

If you have two certs, make sure that any CEU classes you complete will apply to both certs. You don't want to do double the classes to keep both of your certifications active.

We went out to the marketplace and scoured for the best discount CEUs. And frankly there weren't many on offer. Occassionally certifications will run a sale. The best way to catch these deals is to subscribe to their email newsletters.
