A Choice of Exams!

The ACTION Certification Exam earned full NCCA Accreditation in January 2014. It is available at over 250 PSI Testing Centers in the U.S. and Canada. After passing the exam you will earn the title of Certified Personal Trainer (CPT).

The ACTION Online Certificate Exam is a great choice for international students who can't make it to a test center. You can earn a Certificate in Personal Training while learning and testing online.
