I do not believe there is another certifying organization that has the background, integrity, caring and compassion that the ISSA has...
Being able to study at my own pace, fitting it in with my own hectic lifestyle was a huge benefit.
The ISSA goes to great lengths to ensure satisfaction and I am proud to say I am ISSA certified!
The course did an outstanding job of addressing issues that arise with the training of seniors.
Whilst researching health and fitness qualifications I found that the ISSA was among the most competitive and offered the most for the money.
I feel confident to go into the work force as a personal trainer now, and I'm excited to start this chapter in my life.
My experience has been great and the support team makes it very easy to complete the course and get back to me with answers to any questions I have very quickly.
I am recommending ISSA to any and everybody wanting a good strong foundation and knowledge base under their belts
The best part about ISSA, is when you call, you talk to a real person. They are quick to respond, answer all of your questions and help guide you to be successful.
The staff was very helpful also and very nice if I had a question about anything they were always there to help me out.
