The National Council for Certified Personal Trainers (N.C.C.P.T.)has been granted Full Affiliate status with the National Board of Fitness examiners (NBFE.  This affiliate status will remain current for five (5) years.

Full Affiliate status is was granted after completing a comprehensive review of the NCCPT’s Personal Trainer Certification program, analyzing seven (7) major test areas and sixteen (16) measurable test objectives to ensure that graduates of the program are prepared to take the NBFE National Board Exams.

“We are very excited to be a part of the NBFE. The NCCPT is always ready to help to continue to raise the bar for personal trainers” says John Platero, Director of Education for the NCCPT.

The NBFE was founded to fulfill two distinct needs as well as address a series of ancillary requirements. First, the NBFE addresses and defines a series of prescribed “scopes of practice” for fitness professionals. The second is that the NBFE defines the “standards of practice” for all the different roles and assessing fitness professionals based on those standards..

Lobbying for insurance reimbursement is also a critical part of the NBFE plan due to the demonstrated cost savings benefits associated with healthier clients. Furthermore, personal trainer liability insurance companies recognize that qualified fitness professionals are less of a risk than non-qualified individuals. The NBFE will also tirelessly lobby primary care physicians and chiropractors and the organizations that oversee them to begin referring to Registered Personal Fitness Trainers and writing prescriptions for exercise. This will not only improve public health, but over the next five to ten years it will stimulate tremendous growth for all health clubs and fitness.
