Our International NASM-CPT certificate is accredited through Europe Active (the European Health & Fitness Association). NASM Certified Personal Trainers are automatically registered for the first year in the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS - Level 4). Fit-NL will registrate you after you pass all the exams and become certified and is offering you one year of registration for free! You can broaden your horizons and work in a European country of your choice. It is possible that certain gyms require you to obtain further certification, depending on the country and local rules and regulations.

If however you want to –be able to- work in the USA, other qualifications and regulations apply;

To become a certified personal trainer in the USA, you must successfully pass an exam validated by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). In addition to passing this exam, certified personal trainers are required to be 18 years of age and hold a current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) certification.

Fit-NL offers you the opportunity to obtain this certification in a few simple steps;

  • Fit-NL offers you to take the validated exam at an NASM appointed location in the Netherlands through an accredited NASM alliance. Date, time and place are determined by NASM and will deviate from the Fit-NL schedule. Important: this exam is only offerd a few times a year. So there is a fair chance you will not finish the course in time as programmed on our website. The additional costs for this exam are 200,00 Euros. Do keep in mind this is added to our standard exam costs. Payment is due before the exam date.
  • You will need to get certified for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED). You need to submit a copy of the certificate to Fit-NL before the theoretical exam.
  • You have to be over the age of 18 or you will need a high school diploma (or the equivalent). In Europe this equals a diploma on 4 EQF level (in the Netherlands this equals  MBO level 4, or HAVO). You will need to send a copy of your diploma to Fit-NL.

When you meet all mentioned qualifications, pass the exam, and submit all the requested documents, Fit-NL and NASM will provide you with the USA accredited certificate.

NASM has strict rules about the expiration date of the certificates. The certificate is valid two years after passing your theoretical exam. After two years you will have to follow a recertification course.
