Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change my status from student to teacher?

YES! Congratulations. Upgrading your membership to teacher status is easy but must be done over the phone. Email us at to schedule a quick phone call to transition your membership.

How long can I be a student member?

Teacher status is generally achieved within 12 months of beginning your studies, therefore a student membership in the PMA is limited to a length of 1 year at which time you must update to a teacher status.

Can I renew early?

Student teachers are allotted one year of membership. You are unable to renew Student Membership, you must upgrade to Teacher membership.

I am not an NCPT can I still join the PMA as a teacher member?

YES! Membership in the PMA is inclusive and is no longer restricted to only NCPT certification.

Does renewing my membership also renew my insurance?

The PMA DOES NOT offer insurance. You must contact your insurance carrier to renew your insurance.  However, as a PMA member, you can enjoy a discount from both Lockton Affinity and Insured Fitness Group. Check it out on our Insurance Page.
