I DO NOT RECOMMEND AFAA CERTIFICATION
I took the workshop in the beginning of November! They failed me at practical. God knows why! When i asked they could not give me a reasonable explanation. Also you have no proof that you did good. it's just you and the instructor in a room. However after i waited a long mouth i got the result. Then i had to take the exam again. Of course after they charge $75. I'm still waiting for the result. It takes for ever to mail you the results. Somewhere between 1 to 3 months. If you call and you ask them, they want another $35 to mail you the results. Please note i am still waiting for the results at the practical exam. A result known a month ago at the time i took the exam.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND AFAA. They just want to take your money. they are very shady. There are others certifications for personal trainer and group exercises available. AFAA takes too long to send you the results and the certification. And they rip you off.
Try other certification. I am so sorry i went with them.
