You will have 6 months to complete the NASM Certified Personal Trainer exam. Certification is typically completed in just 8-12 weeks. Extensions are available for each course for an additional fee. Although the exam expires, you will maintain access to the NASM-CPT content for 5 years upon purchase. This allows you to go back and reference the rich course content during the beginning of your career.

You will have 365 days to take your final exam for the Virtual Coaching Specialization and access to the course content for 5 years after purchase date.

NASM’s Personal Trainer Certification (NASM-CPT) is a certification, which means you must recertify every two years.

The Virtual Coaching Specialization is not a certification, which means it does not need to be renewed.

In order to recertify, NASM-CPTs are required to earn 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years. The Fundamentals of Virtual Coaching is worth 1.5 NASM CEUs.

NASM’s Personal Trainer Certification (NASM-CPT) is an NCCA accredited certification, meaning you must pass a live proctored exam, which can be administered online or in-person.

On the contrary, the Virtual Coaching Specialization has a final exam that is administered online within your student portal.

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.

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.

You will have 3 attempts to pass the final exam for the Virtual Coaching Specialization. If you do not pass after 3 attempts, you may contact Member Services to purchase a retest.

"NASM provides great information, in an easy to navigate format. The ability to knowledge check your self over and over again is wonderful. You always find out where your weaknesses are. The webinar's are what made it all click for me. The lecture videos, are short and sweet and straight to the point. The process is easy. It's laid out for you and all the information is there and communicated well."
