NASM’s Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) is an NCCA accredited certification, meaning you must recertify every two years by earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs). To recertify for the NASM Certified Nutrition Coach (NASM-CNC), you must complete the CNC Renewal Exam.

The NASM Stretching and Flexibility Coach (NASM-SFC) is a specialization, not a certification, meaning it does not need to be renewed. Once you pass your final exam, your NASM-SFC specialization certificate never expires.

In order to recertify, NASM-CPTs are required to earn 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years. As part of this bundle, you will earn 1.9 CEUs upon passing of your Certified Nutrition Coach final exam. The remaining 0.1 CEUs will be fulfilled by maintaining your current CPR and AED certifications.

You have 6 months to complete the NASM-CPT final exam and 1 year to complete your NASM-CNC and NASM-SFC final exam. Extensions are available for each course for an additional fee.

The OPT™ Model is our 5-phase training model that starts with Stabilization and ends with Power. The NASM-CPT program utilizes the Optimum Performance framework to ensure that all NASM-CPTs are well-versed in our training methods. Read here to learn more about the OPT™ Model.

NASM’s Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) is an NCCA accredited certification, meaning you must pass a live proctored exam, which can be administered online or in-person. The NASM Certified Nutrition Coach (NASM-CNC) and NASM Stretching and Flexibility Coach (NASM-SFC) final exams are administered online and can be taken from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you prefer to take tests.

Don't fret! A free retest is included as part of the NASM-CPT Guided Study program. For more details, please refer to your Candidate Handbook.

Trainer Testimonials

Tony Ambler-Wright Review 5 stars

"I could probably say that I owe my career and where I'm at today to the Corrective Exercise Specialization . By implementing the assessments, programming, and solutions that I learned through the CES program, it allowed me to work with a wide variety of clients that I might not have been able to work with and help achieve their goals otherwise."

Rick Richey review 5 stars

"I know when I first started training with the CES, that's when my business picked up and I started getting a lot more clients and a lot of people that I wouldn't have normally seen. I wanted to train a lot of the athletic folks, and it's been amazing that even with elite athletes that I've trained, I do more of corrective exercise with them than probably almost anything else."

Mike Fantagrassi Review 5 stars

"I'm very passionate about the Corrective Exercise Specialist because it's something that helped propel my career. In 2006 that's when I was exposed to the NASM corrective exercise specialization. I went through the course and it really transformed my business as a trainer. I became a lot busier because I knew I could work with a wider variety of clients. But on a personal level it helped me. I wasn't moving that great. I was in my early 30s, and I had some pain in my hip and also my shoulders from lifting heavy. And by following the protocols in the program I felt better. I became very passionate about corrective exercise, and I help teach other people how to get this as well."
