As the nation’s largest school devoted to personal training, The National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) of Sacramento’s mission is to prepare its students to become personal trainers and fitness professionals. NPTI strongly believes that self-study and 16 hour courses are not sufficient to become a qualified personal trainer and instead advocates that personal trainers need a minimum of 500 hours of education. Our graduates are ready to enter the work force.. and benefit the community, as they are well versed in the scope of practice of personal trainers and knowledgeable on the subjects of health and fitness related to personal training. We strive to provide a high quality and worthwhile educational experience that each student values and would recommend to their peers. Through implementing the highest of standards in our program, our students are the most sought after fitness professionals in the industry.
NPTI has the largest number of grads per year of personal trainers that have gone to a 500-hour school and added an additional 100 hours in 2010 in selected locations. There is not an applicable personal trainer licensure exam in California and all other states. The student is not eligible for federal financial aid because it is not an accredited institution through the Government at this time. Upon graduation our students are awarded with a Diploma in Personal Training making them eligible for hire in the workplace. They are also awarded a Certification in Basic Nutrition, they are certified in CPR/AED and First Aid through the American Red Cross, and they are eligible/qualified to sit for any Certification they choose. Not all students wish to become personal trainers and so the term “Fitness Professional” encompasses other career choices (physical therapist assistants, strength and conditioning coaches, nutritionists, etc). NPTI does not believe that one can receive an optimal education through self-study and minimal formal educational time, so it espouses that personal trainers should receive at least 500 hours of education (which is what NPTI Sacramento offers).
Our graduates are ready to enter the work force because they can be hired with no additional education or certification necessary. They are taught the scope of practice for personal trainers (which is “to enhance the components of fitness for the general, healthy population”) and extensively tested on the subjects of health and fitness related to personal training (see the course objectives for a more detailed list). NPTI provides a quality educational experience as shown by the need for instructors to be ranked an average of 8 out of 10 or better by the students. NPTI provides an experience that each student values as shown by students reporting that they received their “money’s worth” on evaluations, and far exceeds this expectation. NPTI is an experience that students would recommend to their peers as shown by most all of the graduates reporting that they would recommend NPTI to their friends.
