>This so-called company (www.NHEcertification.com) must be a bogus one that just steals your info such as e-mail, name, phone, resume etc, for their own profit and for flooding you with spams.

>Their website looks fake and doesn't give much info.
>When you call them, there is no live person to speak with, and  it asks you to enter an extension to leave a message.
>If you leave  messages, your messages will never be returned (either by e-mail or by phone).

>You may hope that if you don't have an extension, you will be transferred to a live person? WRONG! If you don't have an extension, your call will be transferred to another voice mail box which requires you to leave your info. If you leave a message there, again they won't return your call! (Then why the hell do they ask for my info?)

>I received an e-mail from this so-called company (!?) saying that they had got my resume through monster. com and that they are very interested in my knowledge and experience. In the e-mail, I was asked to contact them which I did (and gave them some more info on myself, which I shouldn't have), both by e-mailing and by calling and left them messages and my contact info to contact me back. To my surprise, they never contacted me!

>The other strange thing is that they keep e-mailing me the exact same e-mail over and over (spam?) with the exact wording. It is a generic e-mail with my name on top of it and it is a pure lie.
I just added them to my spam folder.

If they are not bogus (which I doubt), then they must be very unprofessional which means I wouldn't ever work for them.
>Just ask yourselves this question: "Why are there so many complains, vague and ambiguous issues around this so-called company?
>Now judge for yourselves whether there is something fishy and phony going on there.

>I spent some time to contact them to no avail. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!
I hope some authorities will bust them and give them what they deserve, JAIL AND PENALTY.

I agree. This complaint is ridiculous. You want them to go to jail because you never opted out of the email?

what is this post?

If this is the type of fitness professionals gyms have to deal with, it's no wonder they have such a stringent hiring process. Who goes online to post a long rant like this just because they were turned down for a job?

Their services are marketed very well. I have read somewhere on here that they think the company's business model is to sell study guides. I find this amusing being that their guides sell for around $600 retail and their consultation services sell for tens of thousands of dollars. I find it difficult to understand this obsession with some people believing the company wants to sell them a book at a discounted rate. No company could survive just selling study books.

new job

AUTHOR: cohn19 - (USA)

POSTED: Saturday, July 15, 2017

Was recently hired as a pfms. Went through the entire recruitment protocol in a week, received passing score a week after taking exam on a Sunday. The job is ok. Nothing to brag about. The hours are very flexible which is probably the best thing about working for them. Can't relate to those who call them a scam. I was never asked to purchase anything, in fact when I asked my hiring manager if I should buy a guide he sounded offended that I bothered him with it. He seemed only concerned with the 30 day admin deadline.

I do not understand this?

POSTED: Wednesday, January 18, 2017


To OP, I read your report but I am sorry I was unable to understand your complaint. Is there anyway you can more clearly explain why you think they ripped you off? I have read many reviews on NHE which all seem to confirm they do not try to push any materials on job candidates.

Thank you for your time.

What does this mean? You cheated on the exam and you are upset that you failed?

What is this post? After reading it, it's not much of a surprise why they never contacted you.

Im not sure how long ago you were contacted by NHE but there must be a reason why no one responded to you. I was contacted and have been going through the hiring process with ease, with an actual person. It in no way seems like a scam, so maybe try again?

Cheating scams the client because you have a fake credential that you didn't earn.

I saw this online and I had to post something. To the person (post below) who thought the company was a scam because it didn't authorize a personal trainer certificate based on your plagiarized exam.... Thank Goodness!! There are far too many uneducated trainers in gyms all across the country. Let this be a lesson to all cheaters out there! Study but don't cheat because it hurts the industry as a whole, plus it's unethical.

Wow! This takes balls.

POSTED: Sunday, May 12, 2013

Let me get this straight... you had a "friend" (by this you mean you) who cheated on the exam, got busted and consequentially failed the exam because it was deemed fraudulent and you think the company is unethical? LOL! I hate to be the one to rain on your parade but that makes you the scam, not the other way around. Sorry.

Study Guide Scam

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

POSTED: Friday, May 10, 2013

I've worked in the health/fitness industry for a long time, and I had never heard of NHE (National Health Educators).  I was contacted by the company in the same manner as the orignial poster a while ago.  I contacted mulitple departments, wanting to know more, I had several questions, but most of the time, my emails to the company were ignored, and if they were answered, they were answered in about 5 words or less.  Just awful customer service.

The company looks to earn money by selling study guides for around $200.  The study guide has an absurd amount of different subjects, with no real format, no key points, is extremely vague.  There are typos everywhere...  poorly done, especially for the kind of money they charge.  You're supposed to fill out a waiver so that you can supposedly get your money back for the exam if you meet certain critieria.  Upon completion of an exam, you'll get an autogenerated email that says you are "unauthorized" and you can schedule a retake.  You don't get a score, you aren't told what was incorrect, you get nothing.  

I along with other people I know have initiated the hiring process with the company, and have all had the same experiences.  I knew someone who had essentially cheated on the exam, knowing that 95% of the exam was indeed correct, and that person still recieved an "unauthorized" email.  This of course leads me to believe that it is indeed a scam, either that, or the company is incredibly unethical.

WTF? What did you buy?

AUTHOR: Connor - ()

POSTED: Friday, May 03, 2013

WTF? I don't get it... How did you get 'ripped off'? You didn't even buy anything. It sounds as though they never even contacted you. What is the point in posting this?

Much todo about nothing...

Sounds like one of those scam emails NHE warns people about on their website. Either way, your concerns make no sense because your email, name and phone number (your major concerns?) are all online for anyone to take. You posted your resume on Monster... remember? It contains everything you fear might get stolen.

I have been searching NHE for three days now and I have not found one legitimate complaint. The few 'negative' posts I've found are like this rant, nothing substantive at all. People don't want to read your rant so please stop doing this to people. I could have been doing something useful with my time.

 I concur... this was a complete waste of my time!

Report is waste of time!

AUTHOR: Dennis - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, March 13, 2013
WTF? I found this on Google thinking it would provide me with some information regarding NHE but all it's about is how they didn't return your call and because of that you think they should all go to jail? Are you serious? I don't know you but maybe they made the right call... no pun intended.

This is the dumbest complaint I've read thus far.

This is the dumbest complaint I've read thus far.

Note to self: 'If I want to land an interview, I shouldn't leave 20 messages on the hr voice service. That might tip off my OCD.'

Thanks for posting this and wasting my time! Take your freakin meds already.
