AASM requires that a recruit recertify every year after their initial certification. Recertification deadline will be exactly one year (365 days from passing the initial certification test). Recertification fee will be available on the AASM website for current fee provided on the website. AASM will notify a certified professional within 60 days of their recertification date via phone, text, and email. Please be sure to notify AASM via customer service of any updated phone or email changes to allow for updating of your file. The purpose of recertification is to validate that an AASM fitness professional is up to date with the most current information regarding health, fitness, business practices, conditions, terms, and stipulations in the fitness industry. To recertify, a fitness professional must have demonstrated good conduct in the fitness field and is in good standing with AASM.
An AASM fitness professional may have their certification reestablished after showing proof of passing the initial certification. Proof must be of the certificate, or the certification ID that is provided upon completion of the exam after passing. You must provide proof of updated liability insurance, and updated AED/CPR certification. Proof may be submitted as a scanned document via email, a picture sent via phone, or photocopy mailed to AASM headquarters. For re-establishment, a fitness professional must have been in good standing. A late fee may be applied for reestablishment. If you do not meet the terms of re-establishing certification within the 60 day grace period, a new certification practicum and exam will need to be purchased.
