Hey John I'm currently going to school for my associates in personal training and going for my ace certification its a two year degree done online unless you want to go to missouri...where they have their campus.
Check em out www.pinnaclecareerinstitue.com
thats what I go to they always redirect me to another site but if you were serious they would work with you and if you have access to the internet you can make it happen. You could talk to a student advisor counselor and they can help you out.
Quick tip: It is not easy currently I'm taking Kinesiology 101...barely passing...barely. Know that if you were to take this step its a lot better then just getting a certification. Aslo at the end of my two years I have to go to a boot camp in Las Vegas for a two week siminar and I believe Jay cutler will be running it I'm not entirely sure of who and what but it's supposed to be very informative.
I don't know where your commitment levels are but after this ill further my education probably into nutrition so I can do both.
