Renewal Procedures for AAAI/ISMA

There are 2 requirements to renew a certification:
- 8 Continuing Education Credits (CEC’s). You earn these credits by attending any of our workshops or conferences. If you are Certified in Personal Training, feel free to attend any of our other courses. whether you have an interest in Yoga, Pilates, or Sports Nutrition, any of these courses will fulfill your Credit requirements to renew your AAAI/ISMA certification.
- Payment of the $20 renewal fee. This can be paid over the phone, or by mailing a check to our home office. You may not pay this fee at our workshops or conferences, or on our website.
YOUR CERTIFICATION DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UPON CREDIT COMPLETION!
Obtaining 8 CEC’s will allow you to renew all of your certifications, but you will still need to pay the $20 Renewal Processing Fee.
You must earn at least 8 CEC’s every year in order to renew. The 8 CEC’s
will renew all of your expiring certifications through AAAI/ISMA. All of the
AAAI/ISMA Conferences and workshops are worth 8 CEC’s.
