Director Credential
 
 

MFA  is proud to announce the creation
of two new 
Industry Credentials (NCCA accreditation pending)

Fitness Facility Director 

Medical Fitness Facility Director 


For over 25 years, the Medical Fitness Association has provided fitness leaders with educational resources, networking opportunities and facility certifications. For its twenty-fifth year anniversary it is adding two new professional credentials (pending NCAA accreditation).

These certifications are designed to test leaders of medical and non-medically integrated fitness facilities on their knowledge of fundamental operations of fitness facilities and their understanding of the roles fitness facilities will play in the future of healthcare.

The two credentials build on each other.   Successful completion of the Fitness Facility Director Certification (CFFD) is required prior to sitting for the Medical Fitness Facility Director Certification (CMFFD) exam.

1.       The Fitness Facility Director Exam ensures that fitness facility directors and aspiring fitness facility directors possess the core knowledge and skills to safely and efficiently manage their centers. The 100 question Fitness Facility Director Certification also exposes the fitness industry to the basic concepts of Exercise is Medicine and MFA’s Facility Standards and Guidelines. Eligibility Criteria: The individual must have a minimum of three years of experience in a management/leadership position with a bachelor's degree or higher in a fitness, or business, related field, or five years of experience in a management/leadership position with a minimum of an associates degree.

2.       The Medical Fitness Facility Director Certification credential builds on the base knowledge tested in the CFFD. This 50 question test covers knowledge in nine specific content areas relevant to the operation of medically integrated fitness facilities including risk and emergency management, finance and budgeting, staffing, quality and outcomes, assuring a safe environment of care, physician referral, marketing, strategic planning and general operations.  Possessing the CMFFD demonstrates to employers that the certified director is prepared to ensure and sustain a safe environment of care for disease management programming that integrates seamlessly with both the fitness centers core offerings and the local continuum of care. Eligibility Criteria: The individual must have a minimum of three years of experience in a management/leadership position with a bachelor's degree or higher in a fitness, or business, related field, or five years of experience in a management/leadership position with a minimum of an associates degree.

The MFA helps to prepare facilities, and now facility managers, that are connected to local healthcare continuums to fully meet the needs of the doctors, patients, members, communities and health systems they serve.



resource list is available. 


Completing the Fitness Facility Director Credential (CFFD) Exam will be a prerequisite for taking the Medical Fitness Facility Director (CMFFD) Exam. Be prepared to advance your career by becoming a Certified Fitness Facility Director, or a Certified Medical Fitness Facility Director, this year!
