Recertification Cost for NASM

by ML
(UTAH)

I am currently trying to decide which to take out of ACE and NASM. I have an Exercise Science Bachelors degree and want to do in home training. However, I am hung up on how much it is to recertify with NASM. If you are NASM certified does it really cost you $700? When I called the company they said it cost $250 for a workshop and that would almost get all your CEC'S. Which is right?

Recert real cost
by: Anonymous

Recertification costs $99. It's the 2.0 required CECs that cost real $. You can get them from a "secondary" approved provider for far less than getting them directly from NASM (see NASM's section on "approved providers"). If you do the recert bundles through NASM, it could easily cost you in excess of $300, though $700 sounds ridiculously steep-- they must be factoring in an "elite" additional cert like CES or PES that they also offer (which definitely WILL cost you around $600, plus your $99 bi-annual fee, thus the $700)!

I am presently NASM CPT and ACE GFI certified. I was able to keep my NASM cert current (held that first) by completing the GFI through ACE, but that's not really the "cost effective" way to go, just something I wanted under my belt for the club I work at.
