All Certifications

AFPA offers a wide range of professional certifications in the fields of fitness, personal training, sports performance, holistic wellness and nutrition.

 

With certifications, you can get an initial education in a field and then move on to more advanced training that will help you deepen your knowledge or expand what you offer.

 

For example, you might earn a nutrition and wellness consultant certification, and then jump up to a master level certification as you begin to counsel clients. You could earn a personal trainer certification and then go after a weight loss specialist certification if you find that many of your clients are struggling with weight issues. You can also specialize in certain populations, such as youth or seniors.

 

The more certifications you earn in the field, the greater your knowledge base and earning potential will be, and the more specialized opportunities you will find.

    We let the results speak for themselves. Here’s what our past graduates have to say.

    AFPA instantly gives you credibility and is super well respected in the industry. Clients know that if you have that certification, that they’re getting credible, reliable information. I also chose AFPA because of the course structure. With the courses, you get to make your own schedule and it’s perfect for anyone who may have another job, is going to school, or has a family.”

    Brett Bennett,
    AFPA Master Nutrition Consultant
    Watch Brett’s Testimonial

    The way my life has changed after getting the certification is like a complete 180, honestly. I definitely could not have counseled people the way I do now without AFPA. I was surprised the most when I just realized really how much I was learning. I knew I was going to learn a lot, and that there were so many different curriculum topics, but at the end of it, I learned even so much more than I expected.”

    Candace Bell,
    AFPA Holistic Nutritionist
    Watch Candace’s Testimonial

    The reason I chose AFPA is because of the recognition that they have worldwide, designed by experts in their fields, so I felt very comfortable choosing them. The certification has been very beneficial in my career. I’m now able to attract more clients because of the certification behind my name. I’m no longer just a fitness trainer, I’m a fitness trainer and nutrition and wellness consultant.”

    Doron Willis,
    AFPA Nutrition & Wellness Consultant
    Watch Doron’s Testimonial

    Working with an accredited organization like AFPA has been really beneficial for me. It gives me a leg up on my colleagues because they might know a lot about nutrition, but don’t have the certification behind that. When you’re actually certified, it opens up a lot of doors and opportunities. Once I became certified with AFPA, I was pretty much immediately hired, which helped me get my name out there.”

    Allison Wells,
    AFPA Nutrition & Wellness Consultant
    Watch Allison’s Testimonial

    The certification program changed everything in my overall life. It changed how I ate, my health, and how I help other people. It also changed my career in the health space. I liked that the information presented had studies and actually showed you the research as it was teaching you things.”

    Lauren Rasky,
    AFPA Holistic Health Coach
    Watch Lauren’s Testimonial

    AFPA feels like more of a family. I can always email or reach out if I have any questions and I get a response immediately. It’s a very caring organization. I’ve been certified with other organizations and that’s not always the case.”

    Raven Harrington,
    AFPA Holistic Nutritionist
    Watch Raven’s Testimonial

    The price of the certification and the length of time required is really achievable. It was very easy to digest and I like the way the certificatications are modular, so I was able to build on my first certification.”

    Harvey Slater,
    AFPA Holistic Nutritionist, AFPA Weight Management Specialist
    Watch Harvey’s Testimonial

    I looked at a lot of certifications out there. You name it, I’ve looked at it, but AFPA stood out to me. They’re out-of-the-box thinkers and so am I. The certification process was fairly easy, it was very effective, and fun to learn.”
