Is Expert Rating a "Real" Certification? Anonymous I've answered my own question but you can decide for yourself as well. Yes in that it's called a "certification". However, they take adavantage of the fact that there is not a governing body or standards for Personal Trainer certification.

Basically I can make a test and call it good Expert Rating primarily based in India is a company that makes "learning" exams. They are ISO certified with respect to documentation and procedures. ISO Certifed means nothing with respect to being recognized or an actually "certifying" entity. Do they have study materials and a "certification" exam? Probably not if you want to say you are "certified" to start a private business but clubs may turn you down.

You may also pay more for insurance as Expert Rating is not a recognized entity. Meaning that you will be insured as NON-Certified. This is only if they ask. Lastly there may be issues with legal matters if someone decides to sue you for negligence or misrepresentation. So you decide are they real or not? I was told that I have to get a PT certification as well so I can work here. I need to know if I can only get a online certification since I alredy have a degree, and if a certification like a ExperRating would be enough to help me get a job in big gym or anywhere.

I've been missing lots of opportunities because I don't have a certification but seriously, I don't want to spend money and time doing everything again. Anybody know any fast and trustful way to get this certification ASAP?

Good luck with the resulting lawsuits by: Anonymous I can't believe anyone would even consider this certification.

Sorry to sound condescending, but this cert is ridiculous. You may get a job at "Average Joes" gym, but what happens when you want to expand your horizons elsewhere? Rusty Shackelfor I am enrolled in this program and am no impressed at all! Misspellings, typing errors, false information, and outdated workout plans and routines. If you are a person excited about a new career in PT and really want to learn do not take this course!! If you do make it in the field and hope to get out of the small gym that if your really lucky you could get into with this cert, you will have to unlearn half of what it teaches you.

The workout plans are not practical and go against everything you would see in current exercis related magazines. Plus the program looks like it was designed by high school students! They also literally offer no help!! You will be left to guess if how your taking the small amount of information they give on crucial topics is correct or not. If your goal is to get into a small gym with low pay and never move up in the field then you may be able to achieve that with this cert.

I strongly say to avoid this and not waster your time, save up a little more money and do a real course. It can get you a job by: MJ A big name gym allows you to start off with this cert and within 90 days of employment you have to get one of the more nationally recognized ones. Lastly you have to have the type of motivating personality to gain admiration from clients which will turn into money in your pocket ExpertRating is More Than Fine by: Allen I think I've gotyou all beat. OK, I'll be humble.

Every Soldier learns everything that all of those Certs combined offer - and then some. When a soldier becomes a Sergeant - he has to learn to teach all of this stuff.

That's when you start to realize that all that boring 6th grade and 8th grade biology you didn't pay attention to in school was actually useful. We have all learned this information before - now we get paid for using it to help people.

Waste of money by: Michael Schmid Simply put, most health clubs won't recognize the certification. There is no requirement to recertify, if you choose to do so, you pay a fee and answer a short questionaire about your work experience. There is NO continuing education requirement, something that ALL accredited certifying agencies require.

Would you put the health and safety of a loved one in the hands of someone who isnt required to keep "up to speed" on the changes in the industry? Anonymous I just took it about a week ago.

Easy to follow online class book with video demonstrations. Someone said this in this thread. Surprise They make their money on training They are all jumping on the 24 hr fitness bandwagon Pay the trainers next to nothing La Fitness has a Trainer Sales team that sells training Golds is moving to this platfourm The only way to make money as a trainer is to work as an independent trainer at a small gym or several small gyms To build a clientele.

They rotate trainers every 2 weeks They tell members that changing trainers every 2 weeks is a good thing. That it is necessary to change your work out program every 2 weeks.

Kimo Anything said about Expert Training can be said about all other Certs. I have been involved in Training for over 50 years. Am not at all happy with NFPT anymore. My experience with the more well known Certifications is this: It is more about the organization then it is you. They are a business and are going to find ways to keep making money off you. My opinion is that they all are about the same. Find one you like. Do the darn thing by: Dont let the price throw your mind in curve After reading some of these other threads im sorta suprised that smaller gyms willingly accept these certs.

This will make a great foundation as you may continue your education as a personal trainer down the road thru other certs.
