Hello everyone. I'm planning on getting a PT Cert here in the next 6 months or so, and am wondering if anyone knows which Institutions work with the GI Bill?
I was mainly considering ACE, as I "assumed" it is the most sought after cert but I found nothing on their website to indicate that I can use TA or my GI Bill for it.
I checked out NASM, again using my noobie knowledge that it is one of the other most sough *****, and found that I can use use the GI Bill for it.
Has anyone had any experience using the GI Bill (Post 9/11 for myself) or TA for their cert/institution.

GI Bill & Tuition Assistance
I've looked up both NASM & ISSA, and you can use GI Bill for both - but Tuition Assistance for ISSA only. Reason is that education office uses the US Dept of Education's Accreditation site for their approval process (ope.ed.gov/accreditation/[/url]) for TA approval. ISSA is DETC accredited, which is recognized by the DoE; NASM is accredited by NCCA, which is not DoE recognized, but is highly recognized in the fitness realm. Both seem like great choices -- still deciding between the two myself (i.e., take the TA and do ISSA, or use GI Bill for NASM for the increase in gym recognization & hiring). Thanks!
