NPTI Portland is much more than a personal training certification.  The education and networks gained span much farther than what can be obtained from reading a book and passing a standardized test.   Students come out well conversed and experienced.  NPTI is also a family, a continually growing alumni network, a space and home to many alumni trainers, a local community sponsor and educator, and an employer.  NPTI helps this community and its alumni.  Alumni come from the Portland/Vancouver metro, however spanning from Tacoma, WA to Eugene, OR to Honolulu, HI and Fairbanks, AK.

We are proud of what our alumni have accomplished.  We are thrilled to have helped them become instrumental and successful professionals.  We are confident of the lives they have helped change for the better.  Our alumni are well-educated, compassionate people whom are changing lives for the better, one person at a time.
