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:
- That's scary.
- 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.
