    How long to get certified?

    I recently got off of active duty for the Army, and am looking for a job. I've been thinking about getting certified as a personal trainer, and doing research about which cert to get. Today I heard an ad on the radio for NASM-CPT online training free 14-day trial. Since I am currently unemployed I can devote all my time to studying. Is there any way to get ready in 14 days? I heard about people studying an hour a day taking about 5 months...so 30 days x 5 months 1hr = 150 hours. To do this in 14 days I'd need about 10 hours a day...but having a degree in dietetics I have quite a bit of anatomy/phys under my belt already to maybe give me a head start.

    Is this a good idea to try or is it just asking way too much? Do I need more material than I would get with just this free trial?
    Yes I am willing to put down the money if I need to, but if I can get away without it I might as well try.

    The military will actually pay for a decent portion of your certification if you still have your GI Bill. NASM also has several different academy's you can go to and receive classroom hands on instruction and the military will pay for that and pay you at the same time. It's a good way to go. The course will give you your CPT, CES & PES. CES & PES are both lifetime certs. Go to the NASM website and look into it.
