Provisional Affiliation is a temporary status that the National Board of Fitness Examiners (NBFE) grants certification organizations so that their graduates may sit for the NBFE Registered Personal Fitness Trainer examination.
To apply for Provisional Affiliation, please download and complete the following form including the self-study section outlining the major content areas of the examination and the testing objectives. The NBFE has worked extensively to complete an exhaustive analysis of the practice domain of personal fitness trainers. This “domain analysis” identified seven major testing areas and sixteen measurable test objectives for examination.
The purpose of the curriculum review associated with the affiliation application process is to ensure that graduates of all NBFE Certification Organization Affiliate Personal Trainer programs are prepared to take the examination in each of the testing areas and objectives.
