ACE Certification

Hey guys, I’m enrolling in a course to prep for the ACE certification exam to become a personal trainer. I’ve been around the site for a while and I know more than the basics, but I was wondering if there’s anything that I should watch out for here.

ie: Do most commercial gyms accept ACE for employment?
Is there anything they preach that is just complete BS (Bosu, core stability, functional training etc)?
Has anyone taken the exam? Anything I should look out for there?

Thanks

I’ve taken the exam(and passed 1st time)
A lot of it is practical knowledge…but they are pretty conservative, so basically don’t give the answer YOU would think of, but give the answer THEY would want you to say…kwim?
GL!
