If you decide to be a personal trainer, then it will not be enough for you to know and apply in your work only the basic knowledge and exercises of the course you once studied. To be in demand as a specialist in personal training, you need to improve your skills, regularly take courses in the chosen and related areas. If you are planning to train clients in general fitness, then you will most likely be satisfied with the CPT certificate of a personal trainer. But if your dream is to train athletes or focus on achieving great sports results, then you should to  choose program for strength and conditioning specialist and get CSCS certification. he CSCS exam is considered quite difficult. To remember a lot of new information, you should think about drawing up a curriculum, logical and consistent structuring of information to prepare for this test. Sounds difficult? You can also always use ready-made training materials, for example, I found such ones in the online Academy of Trainers, here https://traineracademy.org/training/cscs-study-guide/ . It really saved me a lot time on preparation for the NSCA CSCS exam.
