Ready to Schedule Your Exam?

At ACSM, we want to make sure that you are well prepared and ready to join our team! We also want to make sure that you can take your exam and a time and location convenient to you. That's why we partner with Pearson VUE, an organization that administers more than 5,000 computer-based testing centers throughout the world.

Before visiting the Pearson VUE site, you should:

  • Select your certification.
  • Review that certification's Exam Content Outline (found on each certification page).
  • Outline your study plan to ensure you've given yourself enough time to prepare (study materials for each exam can also be found on the certification page).

Once you have the items in place, you are ready to go! New visitors will have to make an account with Pearson VUE before scheduling. If you have any questions, you can contact us at this US based phone number 800-486-5643. For questions directly related to your exam scheduling, please call Pearson VUE at this US based phone number 888-883-2276

NEW! Take your ACSM exam conveniently from home through OnVUE online proctoring. A live proctor will monitor you through the webcam on your workstation to provide a secure exam experience. To view the OnVue polices and procedures, click here.
