Your ambition to become a fitness professional can now take you further than before.
Choosing the Right Partner to Broaden Your Career Options
We take great pride in announcing that we’ve partnered with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) to become its official training providers in India. Yes, our schools will be providing the training to become NASM certified along with being K11 certified. Now, your ambition to enter the United States of America (USA) as a fitness professional from India can be fulfilled. With the coveted NASM certification, you can work as a personal trainer in the USA.
Note: However, you will need to clear all the migration formalities yourself, as the certificate isn’t the basis on which a visa will be issued. The certificate is your ticket to the American fitness industry and not America per se. Simply, you will still need to apply for a visa. But once you’re cleared to fly to the USA with the NASM certificate in hand, the fitness industry there will accept you with open arms. You will be eligible for employment.
With each passing second, the fitness industry in India is getting its horizons broadened through this stellar K11 and NASM partnership. If you feel things aren’t as clear, feel free to drop us a query to know how this partnership will affect you, should you choose to become our student through the Diploma in Personal Training (DPT) course.
An important prerequisite to be eligible for the course is that you need to be a K11 Diploma in Personal Training (DPT) holder. Without having first cleared your DPT, you cannot opt for the NASM-CPT course alone.
What’s more is that you won’t find a more competitively priced NASM certification program anywhere in the country. You can now spread your wings wider to reach the USA after successfully clearing the NASM exam, along with the K11 exam.
This means you have the option of simply opting for the DPT course or you have the option of appending NASM to your choice. In the case of the latter, the NASM certification program will be added to the K11 DPT course as a separate course option: NASM + K11 DPT.
What Will You Get?
After the successful completion of the K11 and NASM syllabus and after clearing both exams, you will be eligible to work as a fitness professional in the USA, provided your documentation to fly there is ready—an important point we’ve touched upon at the beginning of this post. Along with all the 6 iCREPS member countries, you can add USA to the list of countries you can work in as a fitness professional.
The NASM program in conjunction with the K11 DPT course is poised to give you a distinct edge over other fitness professionals. Moreover, the exposure to a different curriculum is invaluable. Even if you’re not on the lookout to fly to the USA, simply procuring the knowledge the NASM course has to impart is second to none. It will irrevocably add value to your knowledge base, the foundations upon which your career will begin to take shape.
