NAFC PowerCerts

Enhance your certification and create more opportunities for your training career.

WHAT IS A POWER CERT?

NAFC Power Cert programs uplevel your primary certification by helping you further your training career through mastering genre-specific training protocols.
A power cert is a certificate program that provides education and authorization to teach a specific genre within our fitness space. A power cert requires a primary certification to be able to teach this specific genre. It is an opportunity to grow your career and increase your income. Although it does not require continuing education renewals, this course of study does require your primary certification to be maintained. And, this course of study can qualify as continuing education credits toward your primary certification!
While many special certifications in our industry require monthly or quarterly fees, NAFC power certs do not require this fee structure although some of our power certs that are choreography driven will have fees associated for new choreography, however, these updates are at your discretion.
