NSCA cetified home study or NPTI.. what should I do?
I just graduate with a degree in Exercise Science but the emphasis was on Sports Administration. I want to get certified with the NSCA but im not sure if I should go to NPTI or just get the study material and sit for the exam.
Right now I dont have the money to go back to school, but I want to know if NPTI is really worth getting a 6,000 loan out. I have some experience with training but im not sure if It is enough. Ive been talking to some experienced personal trainers that are certified with the NSCA and they have all told me to just study and take the test. Is NPTI more for people that haven't gone to college or dont have background in Exercise Science?
If anyone has been in this situation can you please give me some advice?
