Exam Sold Separately

NCCA specifically states that any organization seeking their accreditation, which is only for the testing methods, states that the organization can not require any classes, workshops, coursework, etc, to sit for the examination.

Which is why these personal training certification companies sell their tests separately. Thats nice, so basically they are saying that their text doesn't really bring anything cutting edge to the table and you don't really need to learn what they have to offer.

So that being the case, wouldn't it make sense to advise people not to really put to much concern into NCCA accreditation? There are other organizations that realize that the NCCA accreditation does not dictate the quality of education you receive.

NCCA accredits the exam not the education
by: Katie - Admin

You bring up a good point that NCCA is only accrediting the test and not the education. Thats why it is permissible to get your education from a good school and then take whatever certification tests you want.

But you still need to know a reputable test and certification. NCCA accreditation provides that. Its still a good way to tell a good cert from a bad one, but you can still get a lousy education from an organization that has a good exam and reputation.
