The American Society of Exercise Physiologists (ASEP) was founded in 1997 to unite exercise physiologists and promote the professional development of exercise physiology. The Society serves to protect the well being of exercise physiologists by enhancing the recognition of their work and educating the public about their importance and functions in the athletic, fitness, allied health and medical fields. ASEP also fosters the exchange of ideas and research among exercise physiologists, and provides a forum for the continual advancement of the profession.

Work began on the development of the accreditation program in early 1998. Through the collaborative efforts of exercise physiologists from around the country, the accreditation "Guidelines Manual" was submitted for final approval of the Board of Directors at the 1999 national meeting. The manual represents a compilation of work and dedication by exercise physiologists who have identified the minimal standards that are acceptable for educating students for a career in this profession.

Academic accreditation is an important and essential component to any profession. The Board of Accreditation was created within the administrative infrastructure of the American Society of Exercise Physiologists. The Board of Directors of ASEP work with the ASEP Board of Certification to ensure that professional standards are met for exercise physiology graduates and that those who do graduate are worthy of the title -- Exercise Physiologist.

Accreditation benefits everyone:

1. Academic programs are critically evaluated and improved.
2. Students are better prepared for certification exams and the workforce, and
3. Employers are more confident that they are hiring competent professionals.

In time, students will gravitate to accredited programs, as there will be little incentive to enroll in a program not recognized by either The Center for Exercise Physiology-online or the American Society of Exercise Physiologists.

The following academic programs are accredited:

*Midwestern State University

*Marquette University

*Bloomsburg University

*Long Island University - Brooklyn

*West Liberty University
