The NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) certification is designed for professionals who work one-on-one with their clients in a variety of environments, including YMCAs, schools, health/fitness clubs and clients' homes. The exam thoroughly tests the knowledge and skills that are necessary to successfully train active and sedentary physically healthy individuals, as well as the elderly and obese.


Personal trainers with specialized expertise may also be involved in training clients with orthopedic, cardiovascular and other chronic conditions. NSCA-CPT examination candidates must be at least 18 years of age, possess a high school diploma or the equivalent and be CPR certified to sit for the exam. Although no formal post-secondary course work is required, candidates are expected to have a good knowledge of biomechanical concepts, training adaptations, anatomy, exercise physiology, program design guidelines and current position papers pertaining to special populations.


To achieve certification as an NSCA-CPT, candidates are required to pass a challenging, two-and-one-half hour written examination that includes 120 questions focusing on client consultation and assessment, program planning, exercise techniques, and safety, emergency procedures and legal issues. See Testing Schedule for for more information.
