NAFC Recertification

The NAFC accepts continuing education courses from most accredited organizations and colleges. We also accept credits from other accredited fitness certification organizations with which NAFC has established reciprocal relationships. 

If you would like these continuing education credits accepted towards your NAFC certification or recertification you will need to simply fill out a petition for each course that you would like considered. There is a $25 petition fee per course.

The NAFC has reciprocal agreements with NESTA and Balanced Body Pilates, accepting equal credits per course without the need for a petition form or fee.
