Need help getting started on your NASM Certified Personal Trainer course or another NASM certification in Thailand?

Here are some of the commonly asked questions we get regarding doing your personal training qualifications in Bangkok.

Do you offer personal trainer certifications in English?

Yes, we run NASM CPT courses and other internationally recognized qualfications such as the Eleiko Weightlifting course in English. Exams and all materials are also in English.

Do you offer personal training certifications in Thai?

Yes, we also offer personal training certifications in Thai language. Our Thai language courses are popular, so make sure you book early!

What is the process of getting certified in Thailand?

The courses are part self study, part live course. All materials are sent to you on registration and you can start studying and learning. We strongly recommend the live in-person courses where possible, as you get to learn from a NASM master trainer and experiment with practical application.

At the end of the course, once you are ready, you will need to pass an exam to receive your certification. This can be done at our facility in Bangkok, or as a supervised online exam with our team.

How long does it take to get certified?

This depends on your work rate and commitment to the course and learning. You have up to one year to prepare for the exam with most students taking 1-3 months to complete the course and get certified.

Is the NASM CPT Course internationally recognised?

Yes, the CPT course is the fitness industry’s leading personal trainer certification, is recognized internationally and can be used around the world Рexcept for Australia and New Zealand, which require local certifications for fitness professionals.

Can the NASM International CPT Course be used in the USA?

To be certified in the USA, the additional NCCA accredited NASM CPT course exam must also be completed. This additional exam is only needed for students intending to work in the USA.

The NCCA accredited NASM CPT course includes one exam attempt in the fee, with additional attempts incurring extra fees.

How many days do the live courses run for?

For our NASM CPT course, we typically run these over a four-day period, covering Saturday and Sunday in two consecutive weekends.

If we are accommodating travelers to Bangkok we sometimes run three-day courses that run from Friday to Sunday.

How many hours a day are the courses?

During our four-day courses, the learning time runs from 10am-4pm. For our three-day courses we run from 8am-5pm to ensure we get through all the learning and practical work.

Each practical learning day comes with a one-hour lunchbreak.

How many exam attempts do I get with the course?

The NASM CPT course comes with three attempts to pass the test, included in the price. If the exam is failed three times, there is a fee for any additional attempt.
