    The most recognized are ACE, NSCA (CPT or CSCS), and ACSM. ACE is the basic one, then ACSM and then NSCA. Look for non-profit organizations that are accredited by the NCCA.

    Oh yeah, it was easy? I was thinking of doing that one or ACE and I was wondering about the difficulty level. If I feel like I have solid foundational knowledge, should I even waste my time buying the expensive book and all that software to study? Judging on people that I have met with these certifications I consider myself to have more knowledge them which made me skeptical of these tests. Let me know what you think.

    Ya dude the test was super easy...i bought the books like a moron and didn't even need them, like you my knowledge from years of training/research surpassed the book/course that they charged me 500 bucks for. Funny thing is you can have your books for the test, they make it to damn ez. That's why you got a lot of dipshits working as PT in the common fitness clubs.

    Oh alright, thanks. I guess I will save the money and just pay for the test. Sounds much better that way.
