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.

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 (AFAA, ACE, AAAI, NASM). 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. You must maintain a current CPR/AED certification.

All Other Specialty Certifications

These IFTA certifications are specialty certifications and are valid for a one (1) OR two (2) year period.  IFTA requires the following be completed and submitted prior to your expiration date.

*Personal Trainer renewals must maintain proof of current CPR/AED.

  • ONE (1) YEAR Earn a minimum of 3 continuing education credits.  All three should be IFTA approved workshops, courses, certification, or IFTA home study options.
  • TWO (2) YEAR – If you were granted a 2 year renewal then you must earn 6 continuing education credits within the two years.   All six should be IFTA approved workshops, courses, certification, or IFTA home study options.
  • ELITE or GOLD CERTIFICATIONS

Elite: needs same requirements of continuing education as Group Fitness every 2 years.

Gold: needs same requirements as specialty certifications.

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.
