  • Don’t be taught outdated information! NASM's Personal Trainer Certification is decades ahead of our competitors, and is by far the most comprehensive the industry has ever seen. This course uses the most accurate and up-to-date science, then teaches you how to transform that science into real-world application.

  • Build a Successful Fitness Career
  • Learn everything you need to build a successful fitness career working in a gym, or even being your own boss and setting your own hours. This course will prepare you for a long and lucrative career working with everyone from weekend warriors to professional athletes.

  • Train Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime with NASM’s World-Renowned OPT™ Model
  • The foundation of NASM’s certification is the exclusive and newly updated Optimum Performance Training Model®. It’s your blueprint for success.

It’s a flexible and comprehensive system that allows you to create individualized training plans for any client, any time.

  • Master Accurate, Effective Client Assessments

  • Learn the Art of Behavior Change
  • Having a plan is great but knowing how to convince your clients to stick to it is even better. That’s where behavior change comes in.

FAQs

The NASM Certified Personal Trainer certification must be recertified every two years in order to ensure that NASM-CPTs stay up-to-date with current best-practice guidelines and skills. To recertify, you will be required to earn 2.0 NASM-approved CEUs (20 contact hours) every two year certification period. This includes 0.1 CEUs from the mandatory CPR/AED certification.

There are a total of 120 test questions. Of those, 20 are research questions that do not count toward or against your final score. You must pass with a scaled score of 70 or better. You will have 2 hours to complete the exam.

If you do not pass your exam, a retest can be purchased. Please call NASM Member Services at 800-460-6276. A retest is included with the Guided Study and All-Inclusive programs.

If you are currently enrolled in the CPT 6 remote exam, you must complete your exam by 8/31/21. If you do not complete your CPT 6 remote exam by that date, you must call your Program Advisor to upgrade to CPT 7.

If you are enrolled in the CPT 6 PSI in-person exam, you must take the exam by 3/8/21 or you will be auto-enrolled into the remote exam, which must be complete by 8/31/21. You may also call your Program Advisor to upgrade to CPT 7.

You must have a high school degree or GED. You're also required to have a current CPR and AED certifications before you take the NASM-CPT exam.

NASM recognizes that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is very limited availability of hands on skills assessments for CPR/AED. NASM will be temporarily waiving the hands on skills assessment requirement and accepting online only CPR/AED courses. This waiver applies to exam candidates and professionals recertifying their credentials.

This waiver will be in effect until the CDC and government recommendations for social distancing have been lifted in the United States. Once the social distancing orders have been lifted, there will be a 60 day window before the hands on requirement will be reinstated. NASM recommends that anyone who certified or recertified during the Waiver Period obtain the hands-on skills assessment once available to avoid any insurance or liability issues which could arise due to the lack of such training. Please note: The online course must still include Adult CPR and AED.

You will have 180 days from the date of enrollment to take the NASM-CPT exam, and you'll have access to the course content for 5 years. An extension for the exam can be purchased by contacting NASM Member Services.

The exam is taken through a live proctor, which can be online or in person at a proctoring location. For more information about taking the NASM-CPT exam, click here.
