Maintain your certified membership by renewing it annually.
All CSEP members need to renew their membership by March 31, annually. Annual membership renewal illustrates that members are staying current and have the knowledge to put the latest evidence informed research to practice. Renewing is a simple online process that allows you to maintain your certification and all member benefits.
To renew annually you need to:
Earn CSEP Professional Development Credits (audit occurs every two years).
Hold current and valid CPR-C.
Submit the online renewal form and pay renewal fees (late-fees will apply if you renew between April 1 and May 31).
- CSEP-CPTs: $260 + tax (includes Professional Liability & Commercial General Liability Insurance)*
- CSEP-CEPs: $295 + tax (includes Professional Liability & Commercial General Liability Insurance)*
*fees are for the 2023-2024 membership year. Fees are subject to change.
If you are a current CSEP-CPT who is pursuing the CSEP-CEP certification at the time of renewal, you are encouraged to renew to maintain your certification and insurance to continue practicing. When you complete the process to become a CSEP-CEP you will need to pay an upgrade fee of $35, not the full certification fee.
Professional Liability Insurance & Commercial General Liability Insurance
Professional Liability Insurance & Commercial General Liability is included in the membership fees for CSEP Certified Personal Trainer® and CSEP Clinical Exercise Physiologist™ certifications. This industry leading program covers you for acts carried out within your Scope of Practice. The Scope of Practice defines the actions and activities that certified members are qualified and insured to perform under their defined certification.
If you are a CSEP-CPT or CSEP-CEP, log into your CSEP Store Account to view more information about insurance.”
Leave of Absence
CSEP-CEPs and CSEP-CPTs may apply for a leave of absence (LOA). Once your LOA is approved by CSEP it is effective for the current membership year (April 1 to March 31).

All memberships and liability insurance lapse after March 31, annually. For CSEP certified members whose membership has lapsed in the three previous membership years, there is an opportunity to submit an appeal for reinstatement. Reinstatement is subject to approval by CSEP. Specific rules apply; please review the full policy details below.
