Anyways, in my opinion, the only thing that makes a company 'great' is their ability to consistently follow through on their mission statement and the manner in which they treat their employees. Every post I've read validates each of these and so they seem to be in par with the great ones. In any case, you're going to find disgruntled employees if you look hard enough. They seem to come out of the wood work in an effort to disrespect their former employer. It's all bull**** anyway. It doesn't matter what one person says about anything. You have to step back and see what the deal is and make your own judgment, which it appears you have already done.
NHE doesn't hire pretenders or people who have the 'widely accepted credentials', just because they possess one, that's what I've come to understand. For example, you can graduate from the top high school in the country but you still have to apply and get accepted to go to Harvard. You say that any gym would hire a NASM cert holder on the spot, but that is ridiculous. Anyone can pass the NASM exam, with sufficient prep time and it says nothing about who they are as a person in terms of their dependability, their character, their ambitions and how they treat the people they work with. I know NASM trainers that I wouldn't hire to train my dog.

I know this is a bit of an old thread but I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some assistance. Just a quick bit of info, my wife got an email to apply for an NHE mentor position. We did a lot of research on it and decided to both go ahead and apply. She has a degree in nutritional sciences and use to be a PT, I on the other hand grew up in the luxurious (haha right...) restaurant industry but have always been athletic, playing soccer in college, training in martial arts all my life, leading a couple of fitness boot camps etc...
Anyway, we're looking at our study guides right now, my wife takes her test this Saturday 7/21/2012, and I take mine the following Saturday (I need much more time studying than she does). I'm just going through it and I was wondering - for an example - will I need to know the function of all the amino acids to be able to pass this exam? I went to school for engineering and business, not medicine so all these big names are much more confusing to me than they are for my wife. They make sense, but actually remembering the names is seeming next to impossible for me. If anyone can chime in on some example of how in depth I'll need to know each vitamin, amino acid, minerals, herbs, dietary sources etc... I'd REALLY appreciate it.
Any positive input helps. Thanks guys.

It depends on the exam because they have several different ones I think. If you study the guide and read it all, it perfectly matches the exam and so you should be fine. Their exams have so many different formats it would be impossible for one trainer to tell you about your exam because they might not be the same exam. Good luck though, everyone talks about how advanced their exams are so you will be the man if you get certified by NHE. So many people fail the NHE exam but maybe it's because they didn't study hard enough, if they even studied for it at all.'Real beauty is what's inside.'

Seems like a scam
After being aggressively recruited by NHE, and I mean multiple emails per day, I finally thought I'd look into the company. They require you to take the master trainer exam as a part of the hiring process and highly recommend you buy their study guide. For $200, the study guide is terrible. It seems like blurbs copied off Wikipedia. The exam is organized in a really odd way and the study guide doesn't help you study with worksheets or anything. The information it asks is easy, but you really don't get enough time. On average, you get 45 seconds per question. There are quite a few short answer and essay questions. It's difficult to properly write an essay in 45 seconds!
The most noteworthy part is that everyone I have spoken with at the organization is very rude. Um, they are recruiting ME! I've got a masters degree in kinesiology and both nasm & acsm certs. In comparison, I'm not impressed. I've not heard of any gyms or coaching gigs looking at this cert as preferrential. Based on my experience, I'd save your money! In the end, I am still not sure if this is a real company or some sort of scam.

Nhe mtc exam
i know this thread is a little old, but I am going to be taking the NHE MTC exam very soon. I have a question about there format of one of there questions; on there website they show an example question:
For this section:
A) Identify four (4) concerns relating to fitness or overall health.
B) Identify three (3) unique (not duplicated from a previous answer) consequences if concerns are ignored.
C) Provide sound, professional, nutritional advice pertaining to.
I am just a little confused on what they want to see for the concerns, do they want what needs to be controlled (like diet, exercise) so that the concerns dont turn into the consequences, or do they want to see what osteoporosis will do to the body (make bones fragile..) ?
Thanks for any help!

These people are not stupid. They have created revolutionary, 21st century programs that are essentially impossible to gain an advantage on. They have multiple exams, multiple study materials, their proctor centers have different protocols that change every month, hybrid algorithms in their administration codes and so on. The search for online assistance will prove futile. I’ve heard that they even have different exam instructions even for the exact same exam topics. Notice how you can’t find one single NHE study guide or exam online, although they have sold thousands of them. There are dozens of people online warning about fake NHE study guides because there are no real ones to be found. There are tons of NHE scams out there relating to their programs and how people try to get a third party one and got hosed by some scam site. On the other hand, you can get an ACE manual on eBay for a fraction of the cost and ACE can’t do anything to stop it.Blood DIEmonds are not forever.

What does the PFMS position entail, how are the work days broken up, are there any benefits offered by the company, can one go from part time to full time? These are just a few of the questions I have. I felt they would be better discussed over the phone.
5:07 PM (15 hours ago)
We are at the final stages of recruitment and you are now asking about the PFMS position details? This is absolutely unbelievable. I instructed you to read the job description, although this is not something that needs to be instructed. In addition to the fact that you have had plenty of time to research the position online and ask questions prior to the initial stages.
Effective immediately, I am withdrawing my interest in your candidacy. To continue forward would be ridiculous, to say the least. I refuse to waste anymore time with your candidacy.

You agree with me yet you did exactly what everyone hates. You fell in love with the company, they rejected you because you were clueless and then you went online searching for threads to post in. You post a bunch of dialogue that could be all made up to make yourself feel better because you think it will detract people once they read it, hence 'mission accomplished'. You are an idiot. Don't waste your time arguing and crying about how mean I am to you, unless you have something to contribute to those who come here looking for real help, just go away.Bodybuilding is an individual sport so don't strive to look like someone else.
