NESTA Recertification FAQs

1How often do I need to get NESTA CEUs to recertify my PFT?
NESTA requires that the PFT certification be recertified every four years. NESTA has created these parameters to ensure its trainers stay abreast of research in training and to help trainers design safe, efficient and effective exercise programs for their clients.
2How many NESTA CEUs do I need to recertify?
NESTA-PFT professionals need to complete 4.0 CEUs (40 hours) every four years.
3What providers can provide NESTA-certified CEUs?
Only NESTA Approved Providers can provide reputable continuing education to NESTA-certified professionals. Any coursework that is not approved by NESTA but is consistent with the educational materials for NESTA PFTs will require the submission of a petition and a $25 fee. It is therefore recommended that students utilize NESTA-certified CEU courses such as the ones Fitness Mentors provides.


Fitness Mentor's Business and Sales course is absolutely one of the best courses I have taken. It is full of very helpful information! Many other courses promise step-by-step details but they fail to deliver. Well, Fitness Mentors truly delivers! Not only is everything very plainly laid out and explained, but there are links directly to some of the sources. This course takes you from setting up your business properly to closing a sale! I wish I had taken it when I first got started. I plan on using the techniques in marketing, closing, and pricing at this very moment! I HIGHLY recommend this course to all Fitness Instructors - especially if you are just starting your career. Take this course immediately after certification! It will save you a lot of time and epic fails. My applause to Fitness Mentors!
