How often do I need to recertify?
To support NASM’s commitment to protect health and safety, the NASM-CPT certification must be recertified every two (2) years. This ensures that NASM-CPT professionals are current with the best-practice guidelines and the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities described in the most recent Job Analysis Study.
What are the NASM-CPT recertification requirements?
NASM CPTs are required to maintain their current CPR and AED certifications as well as earn 2.0 CEUs (20 hours) of approved continuing education that focuses on:
- increasing knowledge, skills, and abilities in the areas of client
- exercise technique
- program design
- client relations and administration
- professional practice and responsibility
For additional information on what is approved for CEUs, please review the CPT Recertification Application (PDF, 769K.) To locate NASM-approved CEUs, visit the NASM Store or our Board of Certification (BOC) page for a list of NASM-approved CEU providers.
