Thanks Garrett. I didn't know the NSCS cert came with personal trainer's insurance. Nice to know.

From what I've been able to find out on the CF threads, you can get trainer's insurance without the accredited PT certs.

No problem, Blair.

On being able to get insurance without any lick of an indication that one is qualified to train:
  1. That's scary.
  2. I'd guess it is pretty crappy insurance and that they don't go out of their way to protect a trainer who gets sued.
Also, if one is training OL athletes and has a USAW cert, they are also covered by USAW insurance, but I believe that is pretty limited in scope.

The NSCA and the USAW both have more to protect in terms of their image and reputation.

George, if you are in Ontario the Ontario Weightlifting Association offers certifications - they are announced on their mainpage when offered. If you are in another province they do have links to the other provincial associations.

I am going off on a little tangent, but I didn't want to start a new thread.

Could anybody tell me about the format of the NSCA-CSCS exam? I just signed up for the exam, but their site doesn't tell you anything about the format. They sell a booklet that describes the exam, but it's like $18. I'm just wondering if I'd need anything more than the textbook.
