Default Trainer certifications??

Hi. I posted a while ago about getting a new dog to work around my horses. Thanks to everyone for all the great advice!! Once I finally do get the new dog, I definately want to take a training class with it. I was wondering if there were certain certifications I should look for when choosing a trainer. No offense but I dont want to take the dog somewhere like petsmart (I had a friend who worked there and they made her a 'certified dog trainer' and I know she knows absolutely nothing about dogs, she just completed their little course). So I know there are all kinds of 'certifications' out there, which ones should I look for? Which certifications are actually legitimate? Im in Columbia, SC so if anyone knows someone there that would be great! Thanks

Maybe someone can tell if one of those would be any good

well CPDT is the one I would go with but there are some great trainers out there without CPDT certification. It's the only thing that actually is a certification comlete with exam etc
