In 2013, ACE joined other certification providers from across the industry in formation of the Coalition for the Registration of Exercise Professionals (CREP). The not-for-profit 501(c)(6) is composed of organizations that offer exercise certifications accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Coalition members are committed to advancing the fitness profession and earning recognition as a health provider for practitioners that have passed a competency-based program using an exercise certification exam that has been accredited by the NCCA.
CREP advances its mission by maintaining the United States Registry of Exercise Professionals (USREPS), an internationally recognized registry of exercise professionals in the United States, and as an advocate for the exercise professional who holds NCCA-accredited exercise certifications on issues that pertain to regulation, access and scope of work.
ACE Certified Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors, and Medical Exercise Specialists appear on the registry found at USreps.org.
