|1. What is the IART all about and why should I take one of your personal training courses?The International Association of Resistance Trainers, is an advanced exercise education and personal training certification company for career oriented personal trainers and leaders of independent fitness businesses. We are not a typical “certification” company. Our courses have been compared to post-secondary studies in their intensity and complexity and are best suited for individuals that have in-field experience.We have developed a three-tier examination process:
* After studying our education materials, you must complete two standardized multiple-choice exams (general fitness theory and special groups).
* Upon completing the first step, you will undergo a written exam and assignments to be completed in a designated time.
* Upon successfully completing the written portion of the exam you will then proceed to the practical exam where you are asked to demonstrate your ability to instruct a subject on proper exercise technique and execution (the exam is conducted via video submission or on-site at our facility or at one of our live events).
We do not pass or fail students based on a percentage score. Instead we work with our students until all course work is completed up to our standards and is fully comprehended.
