Updated Exam Retest Policy to Take Effect July 1, 2022

Dec 21, 2021

The ACSM Committee on Certification and Registry Boards (CCRB) recently updated the Retest Policy. The new policy goes into effect July 1, 2022.

  • Candidates must wait at least 15 days to retake an exam from the most recent date the exam was taken. Re-test candidates will receive a re-test voucher code on the score report from Pearson VUE. Candidates may retake the exam at a discounted rate of $175.
  • Candidates may take the exam up to 4 times in a 12-month period.  If a passing score is not achieved in 4 exam attempts in 12 months, the candidate must wait 12 months after the 4th attempt to retake the exam.  Candidates do not need to resubmit eligibility documentation unless their CPR/AED certification has lapsed.
  • All candidates begin with zero attempts.
