NCSF Recertification Requirements

The National Council on Strength & Fitness requires trainers to recertify with 10 CEUs every two years. These CEUs must be earned during the two-year period most recent to the trainer’s last active credential status.
All continuing education units must be approved by the NCSF Board for Certification to count towards the 10 CEU limit. These CEUs can come from several different categories, including:


Maximum Value from Category

CPR (required)

2 units

Ethics & Professional Practice (1 unit required)

3 units

NCSF CEU Library

7 units

College & University Courses

7 units

Personal Development

5 units

Seminar/Home Study/Conference, etc.

6 units

Note: Once the maximum CEU value from one category is met, no additional CEUs can be earned from that category. The NCSF trainer must submit 10 qualified CEUs that met these compliance standards; any CEUs that do not comply with these category limits will not be applied towards recertification.

The following information will need to be mailed to NCSF for recertification:

  • Completed Recertification Application
  • Renewal fee ($50 for single credential, $75 for two, and $100 for three or more)
  • Proof of CEU completion (Fitness Mentors certifications of completion for the continuing education classes you’ve completed)
