Renew Your Personal Trainer Certification
Get Recertified with CECs and Membership Renewal
Click on the ‘Renew My Certification’ button below to make your membership renewal payment.
Note that this is a non-refundable renewal payment. If you make payment without the required number of CECs, we will notify you and keep your certificate on hold until your CECs are submitted. Log in to see your CE Report if you are unsure.
FOR TRAINERS IN CERTIFICATION YEAR ONE (1)
If this is your first time renewing, there are NO CECs required. Continue with your payment and your renewed certification will be mailed to you immediately.
FOR TRAINERS IN CERTIFICATION YEAR TWO (2)
If you have renewed your certification one or more times, then you are in year 2 or greater of your certification and CECs are required.
ABOUT CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS (CECs):
Starting in Certification Year 2, you must obtain 2.0 CECs to get recertified. You can receive all CECs for FREE through NFPT offerings (such as NFPT Self-Tests, Fitness Flops, or Trainer Refresher), or take NFPT CE Introductory or Advanced Courses, or submit any applicable form of learning activity for which you have completed.
For FREE CEC options, and to submit all other forms of continuing education that you have completed, log in to your online account.
We do not charge a review or petition fee for CECs.
