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.
WHAT DOES CEU REPRESENT?
CEU is an acronym for Continuing Education Unit. CEUs are based upon contact hours. Contact hours are defined by the number of clock hours spent in direct participation in a structured educational format. One (1) contact hour is equivalent to point-one (0.1) CEU.
CAN I RECERTIFY IF MY CURRENT CERTIFICATION HAS EXPIRED?
The NASM-CPT credential will expire if all recertification requirements have not been met by the certification expiration date. Recertification applications will be accepted up to one year from the certification expiration date if all continuing education courses have been completed before or within 90 days of the certification expiration date. A late fee is charged for applications received up to 90 days post expiration. After the 90 days, an additional fee is applied and the recertification application must be received before one year after credential expiration.

DOES NASM ACCEPT COURSES THAT ARE NOT PREAPPROVED?
Continuing education courses not preapproved with NASM can be reviewed by petition only. A $25 nonrefundable administrative fee is required for each course/event petitioned.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY RECERTIFICATION SUBMISSION IS SELECTED FOR AUDIT?
There will be a random audit performed on all recertification applications submitted. If your application is chosen for audit, you will have 30 days to submit all supporting documentation to the NASM Recertification Department.
