Choice of Exams

Since some fitness centers require proctored exams and others do not, you have the choice of which exam to complete.  The non-proctored exam is included in the shipment of materials and can be completed at your convenience.  The proctored exam will be sent to our proctor in your area and will be scheduled in your area at the convenience of both you and the proctor. 


What does the exam consist of?

The included exam consists of true/false, multiple choice, fill in the blanks, and application projects.  The proctored exam contains multiple choice (different test from included exam) and application projects.

What happens after I submit my exam(s)?

Upon receiving your exam, it will be graded in 5 business days from our receiving it. You will receive an email with your exam results.  If you don't pass the first time, you may restudy and retake your exam 1 more time within the 12 month enrollment period at no additional cost!  A minimum score of 85 is required for successful completion of the course.

How long will it take to complete the course?

This will all depend on your prior knowledge and experience in the field. After you enroll, your course will ship in 3-5 business days. This will allow you to get a quick start on it. The estimated time for completion is 2 - 6 months, but you have one full year to submit the exam. The personal trainer II course is simply too detailed to finish it quickly.

Do I have to renew my certification?

Yes, you will need to renew your certificate every 2 years with approved continuing education courses.
