W.I.T.S. CPT Certification

(NEW  – Certified Personal Trainer Course with Test Voucher Included!)

About the program

W.I.T.S offers a Personal Fitness Trainer Certification credential, which is achieved only upon successful completion of the W.I.T.S. CPT written and practical exams.

Certification as a W.I.T.S. Certified Personal Trainer — Level I demonstrates entry-level fitness specific competency and a commitment to consumer safety by individuals who help to improve the health and fitness for clients ranging in age, health, and fitness status through the development and implementation of fitness programs required for practice in the service industry. Individuals who earn the CPT – Level I designation are qualified to implement personalized exercise programs to clients that have no special medical conditions nor specialized physical limitations that would require advanced knowledge or skills.

The Certification Council was established to develop, oversee, and administer certification programs for individuals who are qualified to help improve the fitness and health of clients ranging in age, health, and fitness status through the development and implementation of fitness programs.

The Council is an independent and autonomous organization with the sole authority to develop, evaluate, and administer its certification programs. 

Certification Council members, as individuals, have no authority over certification program matters, except as authorized by action of the Certification Council.

The Council works with contracted testing consultants to develop and administer the certification examinations. Testing consultants are selected for their extensive experience in the development and administration of professional certification examinations that comply with national accreditation standards for certification programs.

Development and maintenance of the Certified Personal Trainer — Level I examinations are based on a Job Analysis Study process that is designed to ascertain, directly from practicing professionals, the frequency with which prerequisite knowledge is applied in practice and the importance or criticality of this knowledge. Content is added to the examinations only after it has been identified through this process and accepted by subject matter experts as required by the examination development policies in this manual.

The Council is solely responsible for essential decisions related to the development, administration, and ongoing maintenance of the certification program. The Certification Council ensures that all application and eligibility requirements, examination development and administration, recertification requirements, and all certification program policies and procedures are directly related to the purpose of the certification program.
