NOCA/NCCA (National Organization of Competency Assurance/National Commission for Competency Assurance) announces that the IFPA, the leader in practical fitness education and training and certification, has earned NOCA/NCCA accreditation. The NOCA/NCCA accreditation is a prestigious designation to separate the IFPA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification Examination process and administration from the meaningless certification organizations that are currently preying on unsuspecting fitness enthusiasts hoping for careers in the fitness industry.


The IFPA has also been awarded another important distinction as an IACET (International Association of Continuing Education and Training) provider. This is credible evidence that all IFPA certification and continuing education unit courses and conferences meet the highest possible quality in education and testing standards. NCCA/NOCA accreditation is a critical step in proving the efficacy of IFPA programs.


The IFPA has always been held in the highest regard by fitness industry leaders professionals and experts who took the time to thoroughly investigate the superior quality of IFPA fitness certifications. Unfortunately, with over 100 certifications to choose from, not all fitness managers took the time to determine why the IFPA was considered by so many to be the best fitness certification the industry had to offer. Only a handful of certification organizations received NOCA/NCCA accreditation, and only the IFPA has earned IACET accreditation. The fitness industrys leaders know that the IFPA offers a minimum of twice the value of any other fitness certification: the most prestigious certification and the most effective education.


The IFPA (located at 14509 University Point Place, Tampa, Florida, 33613) offers over 60 certification courses and certificate programs beyond the entry level and has recently joined forces with the American Academy of Anti-Aging medicine (A4M) and the American College of Anti-Aging Sports Medicine Professionals (ACASP). These two highly distinguished organizations are made up of over 20,000 physicians dedicated to improving the health, welfare and longevity of their patients. The IFPA will be holding future IFPA Fitness Conferences in conjunction with A4M and ACASP Conferences. The first of these joint events will be in Las Vegas in December 2007.
