What Does ACSM Do Internationally?

The ACSM Certification Board’s (CCRB) mission is to develop, maintain, and administer accredited certification programs and provide top-quality opportunities for lifelong career development. In addition, ACSM CCRB’s vision is to position health fitness professionals as an essential member of the health care continuum by being the global leader in credentialing, continuing competence, and ethics. To fulfill ACSM CCRB’s mission and vision, ACSM has partnered with Pearson VUE, an unsurpassed testing network with over 5,600 locations across 190 countries and US military bases around the world.

In addition, ACSM has authorized a select group of world-class education institutions to administer ACSM’s educational programs. These premier institutions meet or exceed ACSM’s quality standards and provide a learning environment that exercise professionals have rightly come to expect of ACSM.

Singapore Testing Candidates:
Based on guidance from the Singapore Government, Pearson VUE or its building owners are instituting temperature checks and collecting travel information of candidates entering its owned test centres in Singapore. In addition, it’s likely that our third-party Singapore test centre network may institute similar requirements. 
• If you are unwell or, have travelled to China in the last 14 days, please reschedule your appointment. 
• If you are exhibiting symptoms upon entering our test centre, you will be asked to wear a mask or take your test in a separate room.
• If you have a fever above of 37.5 degrees Celsius, you will not be allowed entry into the test centre and will be asked to reschedule your exam.    

Testing candidates who are asked to reschedule their exams will either receive a refund (if paid to Pearson VUE) or an extension as determined by your exam sponsor. 
Thank you for your understanding on the matter. We will continue to monitor the situation and will act upon any new guidance provided by local authorities and government agencies as they develop.
