What is the passing score for the CSCS and NSCA-CPT examinations?
The minimum score for passing is a scaled score of 70. The passing scaled score reflects the amount of knowledge that a committee of experts has determined to be appropriate to designate competency on the examination. The scores are not curved; the ability to pass the examination depends upon each candidate’s own knowledge, not the performance of other candidates. The performance of other candidates at any given examination site does not affect the minimum passing score.
