ISFTA CE Requirements

As an ISFTA Certified Fitness Professional, keeping up with your education is one of the most important aspects of ensuring your success in the industry. Virtually every profession requires continuing education, and the Personal Training profession should be no exception. As a fitness professional, your clients rely on your knowledge and expertise and trust that you are providing them with the most up-to-date and accurate information. It is only through time in the field and continuing education that you will develop the skills to provide quality service to your clients.

Your ISFTA Personal Trainer and/or Group Fitness Certification is valid for a period of 2 years from the date of certification. Currently, ISFTA requires a minimum of 20 CE hours to be acquired within the 2 years of certification in order to maintain your ISFTA Certified Personal Trainer Certification. Of these 20 hours, 8 must be through ISFTA courses, seminars, or workshops. CE hours in excess of the required amount cannot be carried over to the next 2-year period. Your standing as an ISFTA Professional will not be renewed unless the CE requirement has been met.

After receiving your initial certification, you unlock a whole new arena of possibilities in career development. Adding additional certifications or specializations to the initial certification is a great way to earn CE hours while broadening your client base. There are many specializations in the fitness industry to choose from. There are several factors to consider when determining which of these specializations would be the best for you to add to your credentials. Among these factors are the following:

Personal Choice: What do YOU enjoy doing?

Demographics: The makeup of your city, town or province

Saturation: How many other trainers offer the same service?

Ability: Can you confidently perform the activity at an instructional level?

Cost Effectiveness: Does the cost of the course support the possible return on investment?

After carefully evaluating the factors that may affect the trainer’s choice of specializations, the trainer must then commence their study in the chosen area.
