Personal Trainer Certification Practice Test

You are almost through our personal trainer certification practice test. But first you have to get through the dreaded scenario questions.

Many exams will make you watch video clips or read a case study and then answer several questions. While we don't have any video case studies on this practice test, our Certification Exam Review Course contains over 750 questions including case studies and video based questions. It is a great way to make sure you are ready to pass your exam on the first attempt.

And remember to submit your own practice questions. If you want to start the test from the beginning, start here.
