IFTA CERTIFICATION RENEWAL INFORMATION

Congratulations on being an IFTA certified fitness professional. You are a part of the most prominent certification and continuing education companies in the world.

Certification by IFTA validates your commitment to excellence.  Continuing education and recertification are vital parts of this commitment.  Therefore, this is designed to guide you through the renewal process effectively.

GROUP FITNESS PRIMARY RENEWAL - This IFTA certification is valid for a period of two years.  In order to maintain a current and balanced knowledge of the latest fitness instruction knowledge, IFTA requires the following be completed and submitted prior to your expiration date.
  1. Earn a minimum of 12 continuing education credits. Six (6) of these credits must be from IFTA approved workshops, courses, certification, or IFTA home study options. The other 6 credits must be from IFTA approved Continuing education providers. These must all be done within two years from your listed expiration date. *If you have earned all your credits from IFTA you can renew with just 10 credits.
  2. You must maintain a current CPR/AED certification.

ALL OTHER CERTIFICATIONS - These IFTA certifications are specialty certifications and are valid for a one year period. IFTA requires the following be completed and submitted prior to your expiration date.
  1. Earn a minimum of 3 continuing education credits.  All three should be IFTA approved workshops, courses, certification, or IFTA home study options.  If for some reason this is not an option for you, you may use 2 credits from an IFTA approved Continuing Education Provider but you must show proof of at least 1 IFTA credit and fill out course petition form for the other 2.  The petition fee will have to be paid along with the renewal fee.
  2. Personal Trainer certification renewals must maintain a current CPR/AED certification.

Late Certification Renewals - Renewals for certifications are accepted for up to one year late.  However, you will have to pay the required late fee.  It is important to note that you maintain the original date on your certification.  In other words, if you send in all appropriate forms and fees 6 months late for your specialty certification you will only have 6 more months remaining in your new certification expiration period.
