The National Personal Training Institute of Cleveland and the National Personal Training Institute of Columbus are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training
What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is the process by which the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) grants public recognition to an educational institution which has voluntarily submitted to an evaluative comparison with established qualifications and standards and has demonstrated that it is in compliance with the Standards for Accreditation, both upon initial application and periodically thereafter. ACCET's function is focused upon educational quality, the continuous assessment and improvement of educational practices, and assistance to institutions in the improvement of these practices within their programs. Through its support of an independent Accrediting Commission, the ACCET membership promulgates and sustains the Standards for Accreditation, along with policies and procedures that measure and inspire educational quality.

Accreditation is a voluntary quality assurance process for educational institutions, wherein a comprehensive and objective process of outside peer review is used to determine whether an institution or program meets the standards of the accrediting body in institutional and/or educational quality and effectiveness. ACCET provides institutional accreditation for its members. (http://www.accet.org/news-resources/faq).
Who is ACCET?
ACCET was founded in 1974 for the purpose of improving continuing education and training and has been officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978 as a "reliable authority" as to the quality of education and training provided by the institutions we accredit. In 1998, ACCET became the only recognized accrediting agency to be certified as an ISO 9001:2008-Quality Management System, under the international standards established by the International Organization for Standardization, and continues to hold that unique status.
Accreditation serves the interests of companies, agencies, and the public through the establishment of standards, policies, and procedures in conjunction with an objective third-party professional evaluation designed to identify and inspire sound education and training practices. When such a process is matched by an institution's commitment to high standards and accountability, a partnership for quality becomes reality. (http://www.accet.org/)
