The Cooper Institute identifies the following organizations as offering continuing education programs. CI grants Approved Provider status based on the developmental processes utilized by the education provider; course offerings are not individually reviewed.
CI is pleased to offer an approved provider program for continuing education providers. Approved provider status helps CI certificants identify contact hour options for renewal.
CI grants approval for organizations as a whole, not individual continuing education opportunities. Participants should be notified that regardless of approved provider status, only those individual programs meeting CI's certification renewal guidelines will be accepted for Cooper Institute Certified Personal Trainer (CI-CPT) renewal.
Some CI Approved Providers may offer a variety of CE programs. It is your responsibility to review each program to decide if it meets CI renewal standards. CE programs must be linked to one or more of the four performance domains covered on the CI-CPT exam and must build upon or enhance base personal trainer knowledge. Visit our Certification Renewal web page for more information on how to find contact hours that are right for you.
