How to recertify?

The NASM Certified Personal Trainer certification must be recertified every two years in order to ensure that NASM-CPTs stay up-to-date with current best-practice guidelines and skills. To recertify, you will be required to earn 2.0 NASM-approved CEUs every two year certification period. This includes 0.1 CEUs from the mandatory CPR/AED certification.

How much is the recertification fee?

To recertify for 2 years, it is RM650. To recertify for life, it is RM1650.

Prices exclude 6% SST – local sales and service tax.


As an NASM-CPT, you are required to maintain your current CPR and AED certifications (0.1 CEUs), as well as earn 1.9 CEUs (continuing education units). These CEUs will ensure you’re current with best-practice guidelines, plus they will expand your knowledge, skills and abilities in these key areas :

*Every 2 years, NASM-CPTs are required to show proof of 2.0 CEUs, current CPR/AED and contact PFC Academy for recertification application.


CEU is an acronym for Continuing Education Unit. CEUs are based upon contact hours. Contact hours are defined by the number of clock hours spent in direct participation in a structured educational format. One (1) contact hour is equivalent to point-one (0.1) CEU.

The NASM-CPT credential will expire if all recertification requirements have not been met by the certification expiration date. Recertification applications will be accepted if all continuing education courses have been completed within 90 days (grace period) of the certification expiration date. A late fee RM299 (exclusive of 6% SST) is charged for applications received up to 90 days post expiration. After the 90 days, you will not be able to renew your credential.
