What are my options if I failed my AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor exam?

If you missed your deadline or failed your initial exam attempt, a retest and/or extension can be purchased. If you failed the AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor exam, you are subject to retest wait periods.

- If you do not pass the certification exam on the first attempt or second attempt, you will be allowed to retake the exam after a 30-day wait period.
- For each repeated failure after the 3rd attempt, you will be required to wait (1) year before attempting to take the exam again.
Requirements and limitations for retesting are described in the Candidate Handbook. Please contact the AFAA Member Services team at 800-446-2322 for additional details regarding pricing and limitations.
