An exercise physiologist must have CPR certification and may choose to obtain professional certification through the ASCM. The ACSM's Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist credential requires that an individual have a master's degree, CPR certification and 6000 hours of supervised professional experience. Some careers require that individuals obtain licensure. For example, physical therapists must obtain a license before they are allowed to practice. While licensure requirements may vary depending on location, physical therapists must pass the National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE), administered by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) ( ). The 250-multiple choice question exam covers topics, such as procedures to keep the client and therapist safe, and diagnosis tools and techniques.
