Retest Policies and Procedures

Please Specify Course
Please Include Name

In the event that you do not pass either the written or the practical examination, you do have options. There is no mandatory waiting period before you may attempt the retest, however we highly recommend that you take enough time to review the course material and ask any questions that you have with regards to areas that you had the most difficulty.

Personal Trainers may retake the exam at ANY regularly scheduled ISFTA Personal Trainer Workshop in your area. If you choose this option you have the choice to attend the whole seminar again or to just sit for the examination. Either way, you must contact ISFTA Headquarters at least 48 hours prior to the workshop to let us know you will be taking the exam.

Group Fitness Instructors may retake the exam at ANY regularly scheduled ISFTA Group Fitness Instructor Workshop in your area. If you choose this option you have the choice to attend the whole seminar again or to just sit for the examination. Either way, you must contact ISFTA Headquarters at least 48 hours prior to the workshop to let us know you will be taking the exam.

Stability Ball Trainers may retake the exam at ANY regularly scheduled ISFTA Stability Ball Trainer Workshop in your area.

PRIDE Kettlebell Trainers (Level 1 or 2) may retake the exam at ANY regularly scheduled ISFTA PRIDE Kettlebell Trainer Workshop in your area.

You must pay the ISFTA retesting fee of $99 and complete your retest within 90 days of the original certification exam date. If you do not meet this requirement, you will need to register as a new student and begin the certification process over again.

NOTE:  If you would like additional one-on-one instruction prior to retaking the exam you can contact your original Course Instructor and make arrangements with him/her directly. Please be advised that each instructor reserves the right to charge a per hour tutoring rate for sessions scheduled on a one-on-one basis.
