ACT Certification Launches the First Free Certification Program for Personal Trainers
Date:5/4/2010

The Athletic Certification Training Commission (ACT) is excited to announce the launch of the world’s first free certification program for individuals who are interested in becoming personal trainers. Most personal trainer certifications cost $400 to $800—with some programs priced at thousands of dollars—which makes the new cost-free certification a valuable opportunity for professional trainers.

(PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- The Athletic Certification Training Commission (ACT) is excited to announce the launch of the world’s first free certification program for individuals who are interested in becoming personal trainers. Most personal trainer certifications cost $400 to $800—with some programs priced at thousands of dollars—which makes the new cost-free certification a valuable opportunity for professional trainers.

“ACT brings a high-quality education and certification program to a demographic market that previously could never afford to invest in a personal training career,” Media Manager David Williams said. “More than 1000 people participated in our program in our first month.”

ACT is an online personal trainer certification program with instructors and staff members that work with individuals worldwide. Its new certification is uniquely designed to allow people to explore a career in personal training—without making a large financial commitment. Students can download a 315-page textbook full of practical knowledge to prepare themselves for the personal trainer certification exam. They can also take advantage of online classes featuring live instructors, study tools such as practice exams, flash cards and discussion forums, and unlimited email support from ACT’s staff of instructors. While the textbook and certification exam are completely free, there is a $65 fee for the online classes, extra support and study tools. “This is still far cheaper than any other certification program,” Williams said.

ACT’s online courses use Web conferencing technology that enables students to watch the instructors conduct live presentations. Students can participate in the classroom through their telephone or computer speakers. They can ask questions during class or submit questions to their instructor by email. Class schedules vary to allow as many students as possible to attend. However, all classes are recorded, so they can be downloaded and watched at students’ convenience.

Most certification programs use a self study format and offer no instructor support, according to Williams. But the ACT Personal Trainer Certification program gives individuals an unprecedented opportunity to complete instructor-led courses from the comfort of home. “Our mission is to change the way personal trainers get educated and to put the emphasis on education and practical learning rather than memorization and test taking,” he said. “By improving the quality of certified personal trainers, we will improve the entire industry’s reputation.”

By offering access to instructors and a strong educational component, ACT is providing a unique alternative in the marketplace. The company was established by a group of personal trainers who were dissatisfied with the state of the certification industry. They felt existing certification providers were charging exorbitant prices and providing very little education, resulting in under-qualified personal trainers in the job market. However, ACT is taking an aggressive, people-oriented approach to improving the situation. “We are out to change the world rather than to collect profits,” Williams said.
