ISSA Certification

issa exam This page has all the vital statistics for the ISSA Certification. ISSA is the International Sports Sciences Association and offer the ISSA Personal Trainer certification.

You can read our full review of the ISSA certification here.

The ISSA certification is unique because it lets you take the exam online making it the only 100% online certification option. This is an important feature for people who may not be able to take the time or spend the money to travel to a testing location. Its no fun driving hours to the nearest testing locations and then not passing the exam.

The ISSA certification exam can also be retaken once for free and additional times for a $50 fee. If you have no personal training experience and are short on cash, this is important. Other certification programs charge up to $185 for an exam retest.
