Look at PFIT (Personal Fitness Instructor Training). I know someone who just finished with his certification and from what I know, it's a tough program that is very comprehensive. It's not your typical "at-home" course with an open book test.

Most certifications are a total joke. You memorize answers and pretend to be the voice of a medical school drop out. It's really sad how no certification has been able to bridge that gap between a good trainer and a hobbyist.

No, this isn't a plug, it's the truth.
