Most colleges now offer degree programs over the web. The AMFPT online certification programs are similar to college distance learning programs. The study guides and exams are online so there is no actual class work. When you finish the test, e-mail or mail it back and it will be corrected the same business day that it arrives. You'll be notified by e-mail with your score and your certificate will be sent by US mail.
The American Muscle & Fitness Certification Courses take you step by step through the process of setting up your business and getting customers, provides actual training routines to get rapid results for all your client's fitness goals, and questionnaires and forms to hand out to clients. You will learn how to set up rates, where to buy insurance, and also receive handouts that you can use. You also receive a letter of recommendation from the President of AMFPT after you become certified to help you in your interviews with clients or gym managers. Topics that you need to know to be successful are covered in the study guides.
