ISSA not widely accepted?
by Tony Brice
I am currently looking at which Certification is right for me. I like your website. It's GREAT info but there is a correction to be made regarding ISSA. ISSA DOES NOT provide unlimited retesting. According to the information I have received from ISSA they allow for one free retest. Now, I don't know if this is a new option for ISSA but I do think it is very fair to offer one free retest considering the prices of Certification.
I did send ISSA an email in reference to why they are not listed by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). I have not received an answer as of yet. I checked the websites of the two largest and most popular gyms in my home town and ISSA was not listed as an accepted certification for employment as a personal trainer.
ISSA appears to be more than just legitimate to me. It appears to be a very extensive certification that provides excellent support. My question is WHY is it not recognized by the NCCA. Thanks. Tony Brice
