    How long does it take to become certified?

    I would like to get certified with NASM. How long does it take to get the materials and take the exam, generally? Thank you

    Lets see.... I bought the materials in May. Tested and got certified last June. So I'd say a month to become NASM certified. Not that difficult.... as long as you know the material hardcore and focus on certain concepts, you'll do fine. You just need a 70 to pass. Good luck!

    Is there anything specifically you should be focusing on?

    One more question, where do you go to get Emergency Cardiac Care (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Certification?

    Yea, for real. I guess being a college graduate helps alot with test taking. I actually didnt pass the first time, then the week later, I focused on what I got wrong and passed the exam. I had a thread last month for the NASM exam. If you guys search for it, it helps alot. I cant really post it since Im not really given the authority too.
