Renew Your Certification

To maintain credentialed ACSM Certified Professionals must renew certification every three years. This recertification process is to ensure that ACSM Certified Professionals enhance skills and knowledge above and beyond minimum competence. Periodic recertification occurs through the documentation of required continuing educational credits and activities during the three-year period following successful passing of an ACSM certification exam. Required CECs vary depending on a professional's level of certification.

How to Renew Certification

In order to renew certification at the end of three years, candidates must meet these minimum requirements:

  1. Accumulate the required number of Continuing Education Credits (CECs), Continuing Medical Education (CMEs), Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and/or the equivalent
  2. Maintain current CPR Certification
  3. Pay the required recertification fee

Renewers also have the option to repeat the certification exam as long as current eligibility requirements are met (current exam prices apply).
