The IFPA Personal Trainer Exam is a closed book, proctored exam. When you are ready to take the exam, you will contact your local library/college/university or testing center to set up a time and date for you to take the exam.
After you have setup your testing location, call the IFPA and give the information to our Testing Department. (If you have a difficult time locating a testing center, the Testing Department will help you pin down a location.)
Our Testing Director will call the testing center and after confirming the location, will send out the exam. After you take the exam, the exam will be sent back in an IFPA prepaid envelope by the proctor. Once we receive your test, it will take up to 4-6 weeks to send you your results by email. It is very important for you to give us an accurate email address.
Please be aware that our testing protocols may change due to the COVID-19 situation. We're doing our best to cover all exams through an on-line proctoring procedure and get you the Exam results as quickly as we can. If you need your Exam results ASAP, you can take advantage of our rush processing as previously described.
We will provide all necessary information upon your registration.
We do not discuss results over the phone. If you need results ASAP, we offer a rush processing for $25. You will receive your results in three business days by e-mail from the day we receive the exam.
