Welcome to The NSFA!
The NSFA was formed in 1989 to provide Nova Scotians with a clear standard for evaluating the quality of fitness leadership in the province & to promote professionalism in the industry. We are a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). We teach certification courses, host exams, offer continuing education workshops and an annual conference, provide instructor insurance, and liaise with national and international exercise registries on behalf of our members.
Our members serve 66 individual communities in Nova Scotia and see an average of 25,000 Nova Scotians per week. We also host a provincial online registry of our instructors so Nova Scotians can verify their credentials or search for an exercise educator in their area.
NSFA certifications are recognized nationally and are transferable to any FLC-member partner organization in every province/territory in Canada. Our members can also transfer internationally to countries which are members of ICREPs. Please see our FLC & ICREPS page for further details.
