Different Exam Resources for Different Lifestyles

With thousands of new candidates applying for ACSM certification every year, there is no single exam preparation solution that fits every busy lifestyle. That's why ACSM strives to provide multiple study options for each exam offered. While some certification routes offer only one or two exam preparation options, all options are available for most.

For the hands-on learner, ACSM offers one or two-day exam preparation workshops for all certification preparation excluding Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Exercise is Medicine Credential, Certified Inclusive Fitness Trainer and Physical Activity in Public Health Specialist.

For those who prefer a virtual classroom on their own computer, webinars are the perfect solution. Choose to participate in an entire six-week session, or drop in on an individual session.

Traditional study materials such as textbooks and PDFs are a great supplement to workshops and webinars, but are also beneficial alone. Multiple textbooks are available for most exams.
