Are there any prerequisites?

To be eligible for the NASM Personal Trainer Certification Exam, here are the personal trainer education requirements:
  • Have a high school degree or GED
  • Hold a current Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification
  • Hold an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certification.
No CPR and AED certifications? No problem. You just need to get them at some point before your personal trainer certification exam.
