The expiration date on your NSPA Certificate is two years following the date you successfully passed the exam, which includes the written and all sections of the practical exam. Your expiration date is noted on the lower right-hand side of your certificate.
To maintain your NSPA CPT and CCS certification you must acquire 24 NSPA Continuing Education Credits every two (2) years. Nutrition & Weight Management requires 12 CEU’s every 2 years. Certified Cycling Instructor requires 12 CEU’s every 2 years. Speed and Agility requires 12 CEU’s every 2 years. CPRS requires 24 CEU’s every 2 years.
You will be emailed a printable certificate with your new expiration date (we no longer mail hard copy certs) when you apply and complete the requirements for re-certification. The cost for certification renewal is $75.00, plus a service fee; payable at the time you submit CEC/CEU information. In order for your NSPA certification to be valid you must have a current CPR certification. We no longer require a copy of your CPR card.
Fill out the renewal form online with a form of payment. Allow 3-4 weeks to process. You no longer have to fax/mail your proof of attendance for your CEC’s/CEU’s, but you must keep these records until you receive your new certificate. NSPA reserves the right to ask for copies if needed.
