Newly certified exercise professionals are added to the Registry once vetted through the member organization. The Registry represents qualified professionals from member organizations only and therefore should not be considered a comprehensive resource to identify all exercise professionals with NCCA-accredited certifications. For a comprehensive list of NCCA-accredited exercise certification programs please visit:
NCCA-accredited exercise certification programs must meet the standards set forth to assess professional competence as outlined
here by NCCA.
How to get registered
Anyone who earns an NCCA accredited certification from a member organization will be registered for the particular qualifying role in USREPS® automatically and free of charge.
Maintaining the NCCA credential in good standing with the member organization will ensure ongoing registration. Those individuals that fail to renew their certifications with a member organization will be removed from the registry the day of expiration.
