NSCA Recertification Requirements


NSCA professionals are required to complete 6.0 CEUs every three years to keep their certifications up-to-date. However, the total amount of CEUs required during a three year period will depend on the current reporting period, not a duration of three years since the trainer was initially certified/recertified. Keep in mind that the current NCSA reporting period ends December 31, 2017.

  • Visit the NSCA’s Recertification & Continuing Education page and Report your CEUs
  • Pay the recertification fee (start at $30 for members and $55 for non-members)

NSCA Recertification FAQs

1How often do I need to get NSCA CEUs to recertify my CPT?
NSCA professionals need to recertify every three years.
2How many NSCA CEUs do I need to recertify?
As a general rule of thumb, you’ll need 6.0 CEUs to recertify every three years. However, and as indicated in the above table, the period in which you initially certify versus the current reporting period may dictate that you require less than 6.0 CEUs. If you got your original certification before 2015, you’ll need 6.0 CEUs; during 2015, 4.0 CEUs; during 2016, 2.0 CEUs. If you are unsure how many CEUs you currently have you can log into the NSCA site and see what CEUs you need.
3What providers can provide NSCA-certified CEUs?
Only NSCA Approved Providers can provide reputable continuing education to NSCA-certified professionals.


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!
