NSCA-CPT Exam Study Materials

The NSCA-CPT® examination is based upon the critical knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA’s) needed to safely and effectively work as a personal trainer. These KSA’s are developed following a job analysis and are used to create the NSCA-CPT Detailed Content Outline (DCO). To support individuals seeking certification as a Personal Trainer, the NSCA has developed a number of optional preparatory materials. These materials are not required nor should they be considered as the sole resources for the exam. The purchase of these materials by exam candidates does not guarantee a passing score.
