All METI Medical Exercise Specialist, Post Rehab Conditioning Specialist and Medical Exercise Program Director certifications have a two-year expiration. Every two years certified members must complete medical exercise/post rehab related course work or observation hours in a rehabilitation setting to be eligible for renewal.Covid pandemic we have reduced the renewal requirements to 5 hours.
You may combine observation hours and medical exercise related coursework to fulfill the 5-hour requirement. Verification of completion of the observation hours and/or coursework must be submitted with your renewal application and fee. Again, renewal of your certificate is required every two years.

If you obtained your MES, PRCS or MEPD certification prior to January 2012 but this is your first renewal, we ask you to complete the Medical Exercise Foundations, which is part of the new and updated Medical Exercise Specialist Training series. This will give you updated guidelines and protocols on medical exercise training.
