How do I become FMS Certified?

To become certified, you must attend and complete the FMS Level 1 course (available live and online). You must then score an 80% or higher to pass the online exam.

Yes, for further information on payment plans please click the link below.

Payment Plan Information

What is the difference between FMS and SFMA?

The FMS is the 7-point movement screen designed to identify dysfunctional movement patterns and asymmetries within the body.  It is mainly designed for the physically active individual. The FMS has no pre-requisite courses or certifications.

The SFMA is the Selective Functional Movement Assessment and is a lengthier orthopedic based assessment. In order to attend the SFMA course, you have to be a medically credentialed professional. The SFMA is being utilized by health care professionals as an initial, progression and final evaluation tool.

What should I charge someone for screening? / Is there a billing code for FMS?

There is no medical billing code for FMS.  If it is being used in a clinic, people bill it as a general orthopedic evaluation.  It any other situation, billing is up to the assessor. In a personal training setting, many people do not charge. It seems like it gains the confidence of the client to see how their scores are improving throughout their training sessions.

How do you screen large groups?

We recommend setting up stations by movement test if you have enough testers.  Once everyone has been tested we separate them into groups:

a.) People scoring 15 or above with no zeros and no asymmetries.

This group is considered not to be at an increased risk for injury and does not need to focus on corrective exercises.

b.) People scoring 14 or below, or anyone with an asymmetry and no zeros.

This group has an increased risk for injury and should focus their time on corrective strategies to improve their score of 14 or lower and any asymmetrical score of 1.

c.) People with zeros.

This group should be referred or assessed by a proper medical professional for clearance before beginning corrective exercises.

Why am I not showing up as an expert on the new site?

First, you must be sure you have created an account on our new website. If you have already created an account, please log in with this username. After you are logged in, you must edit your Expert Profile. In order to do this, put your cursor over the “Find An Expert” tab and click on the option directly below labeled "My Expert Profile".  You will be able to upload your photo, bio, credentials, and current address here.  Make sure you follow all four steps on top of the "Add New Address" page. IF YOU DO NOT ENTER YOUR INFORMATION CORRECTLY HERE, YOU WILL NOT SHOW UP ON THE MAP AT ALL! 

How do I create or edit my Certified Member profile?

Click or Copy and Paste the link below which will take you through a step-by-step PDF on how to create your Certified Member profile.

Tutorial: How to create profile

When I click on “Take FMS Certification Exam” it says below that there are no tests available for me at this time. How do I take my test?

If you do not have a test available to you under “Get Certified,” please email info@functionalmovement.com with your username and course information so we can get a test set up for you as quickly as possible.

How can I get a final certificate?

Once you pass the exam, a certificate will be emailed to the address associated with your account on FunctionalMovement.com.  If you do not receive the email, you can print a copy of your certificate by visiting the Certification Status page under your account. 

How do I classify my FMS Certification status on my CV, Resume, or business card?

If you have taken a Level 1 seminar and passed the certification exam, you may indicate that you are certified through FMS using the credential FMSC.  This will signify that you are certified in FMS training.  There is no certification for the Level 2 course; therefore, we do not have credentials for this course at this time.

Course and Registration Fees

All registration fees listed in US Dollars.  Registrants are responsible for any conversions charged.

    "To become SFMA Certified, one must be medically licensed to assess, diagnosis and manually treat the musculoskeletal conditions." Anyone is welcome to attend the Seminar, but in order to be eligible to officially become SFMA certified/take the exam, your scope of practice must match the above definition.

    Yes you will have access to a certificate(available to email, print, or save) 
    We do not send out hard copies of certificates. Per attendance to a live Seminar, you will have access to online "certificate(s) of attendance" With 
    the FMS Home Study Course, you will have access to your certificate "of certification" after passing the exam.

    Corey,


    Currently, the student discount we offer is for the FMS Level 1 Online Home Study Course: 30% off($265 instead of $379.00 USD) 

    We offer a 10% discount for groups of 5 or more people, and a 15% discount for 10 or more. Payment for the group must be taken at one time on one card or company check. To move forward you would provide us with a list of the individuals that you would be attending the course.   This would apply to either an SFMA or FMS Seminar.

    Massimiliano,


    The FMS Certification exam consists of 60 multiple choice questions, 15 of which are video questions, and you must score an 80% or higher to pass. There is no time limit on the exam. Even once you begin the exam you can stop/restart at your convenience just make sure you simply log out and it will save, don't hit "submit" until you are ready for the entire test to be scored. The Exam is available in the following languages: Korean, German, English, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, and Portuguese.

    To become SFMA Certified, one must be medically licensed to assess, diagnosis and manually treat the musculoskeletal conditions.  If this falls under the scope of your practice, then you would be eligible. (This includes Chiropractors, Certified Athletic Trainers, and Physical Therapists) Anyone is welcome to attend the SFMA, but you would have to meet those requirements in order to be able to take the exam and become officially SFMA certified. 

    Currently, the only Student discount we offer is 30% off our FMS Level 1 Home Study Course. You must call in to secure this rate and validate student status with a university/college email address. 434.432.3677

    Nick,

    We do not offer the exam separate of a course(whether it is the live seminar or the home study) as much of the value of the course is access to the certification exam(which everyone must take and pass individually to gain certification) and it's corresponding benefits. The materials you can purchase separate of the course are not the equivalent to the manual and training you will receive along with registration. Let us know if you have any other questions.  support@functionalmovement.com

    To become SFMA Certified, one must be medically licensed to assess, diagnosis and manually treat the musculoskeletal conditions.  If this falls under the scope of your practice, then we welcome you to take the course and sit for the certification exam. Anyone is able to attend an SFMA Seminar but it would depend whether they are eligible to become officially Certified or not.

    Yes, a PTA would be able to become FMS Certified. There are no prerequisites for the FMS Seminar. You would be welcome to attend an SFMA Seminar either way(we typically have at least a few PTAs in attendance) you just would not be able to become officially certified.

    Does the FMS certification expire?  Are there CEUs required to maintain the certification?  If it expires do I have to take the class again?  Do I have to pay for renewal of the certification?

    Is there any sort of recurring fee for being listed on the website?  Is there any fee related catch that I have overlooked?

    Becky,

     
    Once becoming FMS Certified, the certification does not expire nor do you need continuing education credits to keep the certification.  The only thing that expires is your membership, which is renewable.  
     
    To maintain your membership, you will need to pay a fee each year.  Membership is how you are seen on the Certified Member Map and has other benefits such as access to over 400 videos in the Exercise Library, member's only videos, webinars, research, etc., and exclusive Certified Member marketing materials.

  • author

    FMS Support 3/30/2015 1:34:35 PM

    Faimah,
     

    The test is taken online.  The time it takes to obtain certification varies based on the individual's background and familiarity with the Functional Movement Screen. In general, we recommend setting aside a couple of weeks to learn the material and perform several screens before sitting for the exam.

    Once you become FMS Certified you would be considered an FMS professional not an FMS instructor. Becoming FMS Certified qualifies you to screen people then assign exercises and correctives based on their individual score. You can either become certified via our FMS Level 1 Home Study Course:  http://www.functionalmovement.com/homestudy/35   Or by attending a Live FMS Level 1 Seminar. We have an event coming up in Korea: https://www.functionalmovement.com/events/1303/register

    It is necessary to have access to FMS Test Kit in order to practice screening, which is encouraged.  You will need to have FMS Test Kit available in your facility to utilize what you have learned from the seminar or home study course and screen individuals.

    Double check and see if the heels are up on the board. Make sure the toes are pointed are straight. If the feet continue to externally rotate for all three reps, then a score of 1 should be given for the Deep Squat.

    Hello, are there only one certification for each course fms and sfma? if it is, what is for the level? how can I finish the each level?

    Also  Is there any online home study for sfma for who cannot attending the seminars and no exam for the certification?

    thank you.

    Kara,

     
    I assume you are talking about the FMS Level 1 exam. We currently have no time limit to take the certification exam. You have 3 attempts to pass, and you may take a break anytime during the exam. Our system saves your progress so you can return any time. 

  • author

    Kyle Barrow 7/7/2015 7:13:11 PM

    YH,


    The FMS Level 1 and SFMA Level 1 do have online certification exams. You must either attend a live course (FMS L1, SFMA L1) or purchase and complete the FMS Home Study Course to be eligible to take the exam. The HSC provides the same material covered in the live course but is presented in 90 minutes of video followed by the certification exam.


    The exam is comprised of 60 multiple choice questions that focus on the application and philosophy behind the FMS. A score of 80% is required to pass the exam

    The SFMA currently does not offer an online course, but you can purchase the Prerequisite course. Completion of the SFMA Level 1 - Online Prerequisite is the first step in becoming SFMA Certified. Only healthcare professionals who are licensed to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries are eligible to become fully certified.

    Does this qualify me to take the SFMA??

    You qualify to attend the live SFMA course, but i'm afraid if you are not licensed to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries and pain then you would not be ale to take the exam to be fully certified.

    The FMS level 1 online course has the same material covered in the live course, but without the hands on experiences. Both the live and online exam are the same credentials once you pass the certification exam.

    For the SFMA - once you register for a SFMA Level 1 seminar ($945 USD) you will have the SFMA Prerequisite in your account on FunctionalMovement.com. The prerequisite is only prerequisite for the SFMA Level 1. 
     
    The SFMA and FMS are two completely different educations but can definitely be practiced together.

    I understand that you can attend the SFMA course if you are not a licensed medical professional, but cannot take the certification exam unless you are licensed to treat msk disorders and pain.
    What would the policy be on a 3rd year DPT student taking the course during clinical rotations and then taking the certification exam after passing the NPTE and becoming licensed? Would I have to retake the course entirely or would I just take the exam seeing as I would have already taken the course?

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 11/10/2015 8:14:02 PM

    Wayne,


    As of now, the best way is to input the tests via paper first and then later upload manually. We are in the process of making this more convenient for screening large groups. 
    If you are able to user the App, you could pre-load the athletes into the app and then select the athlete, input the screen results and send the report much easier. 
    It all depends on resources! How many people you have helping you, how many kits you have, and how many athletes ?

  • author

    Dennis 1/6/2016 1:55:11 PM

    Sorry, one more after reading and watching the online course.  What is the joint line of the knee measuring for the active straight leg raise  movement pattern.

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 1/6/2016 1:55:11 PM

    Dennis,


    You can either use the dowel to measure the mid point between the ASIS and Mid Patella or you can simply eye ball it using your fingers. 

    We use mid patella (Joint Line of the knee) to find the mid point of the femur. The joint line represents the distal femur and the ASIS represents the proximal femur.  Finding the mid point between them both roughly estimates a normal 70 degrees of hip flexion. If the malleolus does not pass the joint line of the knee, this is considered a restricted movement pattern. 

    Hope this helps.

    The SFMA is geared towards professionals who are licensed to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pain. 

    Can you confirm what type of therapy you do? 

    However,  if you are interested in corrective exercises then the FMS level 1 and FMS level 2 will satisfy your needs.

    If children are actively involved in sports,recreation or you wish to set a baseline for movement patterns, then I would screen. The goal of the FMS is to 1. filter out pain, 2. Set a movement baseline, and 3. help make better decisions in regards to training and rehabilitation. 

    I would recommend looking into the SFMA or the FMS level 2 for more information we correct movement patterns and motor control issues.This could be a valuable plan of action to take.

    Quick question: I am a PT but I also do some personal training on the side. Would it be beneficial for me to acquire both the FMA and SFMA for different populations? Or could I use the SFMA to also assist in helping clients out with movement insufficiencies or difficulties who are not presenting to me as needing "physical therapist" help?

    In the latest SFMA breakout for Multi-Segmental Extension Upper Body Flowchart and in the Multi-Segmental Rotation Spine Flowchart, Lumbar Locked (ER) Active Unilateral Ext/Rot is performed, but if the patient is DN, DP, or FP &/or Switches Sides, you do not perform Passive Unilateral Ext/Rot with the UE in ER, but instead go to Lumbar Locked (IR) for Active, Passive testing.  Why is passive movement not performed in this position and why is the ER position included in these breakouts?  We were always used to performing passive if active was not functional.

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 6/13/2016 5:06:17 PM


    Eric, 
     
    I would use the FMS as an entry point for clients who do not experience pain during movement. The FMS will help you set a movement baseline, Filter out pain (transition to the SFMA) and help make better decision for training and rehabilitation. 
    I would also use the FMS as a feedback loop/ discharge tool. If you run the SFMA and clean up dysfunction and pain, but perform the FMS and the client/patient still has pain, then this is your feedback loop.

    There are no requirements or prerequisites for taking the FMS Level 1 Online Course. However, to attend a Level 2 Live course, you will have to complete the level 1 first. 

    On the other hand, if you are interested in taking the SFMA course, you must be licensed to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pain. Additionally, you must first complete the SFMA prerequisite course and then attend a live course to be eligible for the exam.

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 7/26/2016 5:49:50 PM

    Hugh,


    We believe that the FMS is the foundation of what we believe, and understanding the principles of movement and why we should consider movement is important. So the FMS online would be a great start. However, the SFMA would be immediately applicable to your profession. 
    You can choose either FMS or SFMA, you do not need to take one before the other, but they do complement each other as a systematic approach to movement. 
    If you are constantly treating clients/ patients who are in pain, then the SFMA would be a great course for you.

    2- I have been a massage therapy educator and therapist. Certified in FMS1. In order to recommend corrective exercises, I became a certified personal trainer and senior fitness trainer through Expert Rating (online cert). 
    Would this allow me to become certified in SFMA? Or should I take a Certified Athletic Trainer course with someone else in order to become SFMA certified? Approved providers if I need a different certified athletic trainer, if personal trainer is not good? Thanks very much

    Daniel,
     
    Thank you for contacting Functional Movement.
     
    Firstly, the two courses are separated by a distinctive marker of pain. The SFMA teaches our movement based diagnostic system and provides healthcare professionals with an efficient and systematic tool to reach a comprehensive movement diagnosis. 
    The FMS Level 2 is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of how to interpret the screen and learn the algorithm to determine whether someone has a mobility or motor control restraint based on their dysfunction. Additionally, teaches you exercise and program design based on an individual’s screen results.
     
    We do recommend attending our level 2 course for the best education and experience and to be eligible to sit the SFMA exam and become certified, you must be licensed to treat and diagnose musculoskeletal pain and conditions. Occupations that normally fall under this category; Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Athletic Trainer etc.
     
    If you do not fall into this category you may still attend the course for educational purposes, but cannot sit the exam.

    Stephane,


    Unfortunately the only course we have offered this year is an SFMA Level 1, Nov 5th -6th in Ottawa, Ontario. We are looking to add more for 2017, so please keep checking our website.

    To become SFMA Certified, one must be medically licensed to assess, diagnosis and manually treat the musculoskeletal conditions.  If this falls under the scope of your practice, then you would be eligible. (This includes Chiropractors, Certified Athletic Trainers, and Physical Therapists) Anyone is welcome to attend the SFMA, but you would have to meet those requirements in order to be able to take the exam and become officially SFMA certified.

    Hi!


    How long do I have to complete the FMS level 1 online course?

    Will there be any FMS 2 refresher courses in the midwest? I took the combo FMS 1 & 2 three years ago and now there is a certification for FMS 2. I'd like to do this but don't feel like I'm ready to take the test, and all the courses that are offered are not close. Also is there a reduced fee, if you've already taken the course earlier?


    Thanks

    Are there plans to create an app that certified members can use for screening and tracking clients/workouts?

    Josh, 


    We are in the process of upgrading our whole user experience using the FMS , SFMA and FCS. There are plans to have a Dynamic User Interface which requires no app. 

    Please lookout for an email in the near future,

    There is no time limit to complete the FMS Level 1 Online. However, if you do not finish the exam don't click submit. You'll be able to access your exam from where you left off and submit when you have completed all the questions,

    The FMS course showed the use of a report that is generated with the light system and what to focus on.  Is that an app, software, or additional purchase? If so, where can I find it? Thanks.

    I have a questions about taking the prerequisite SFMA online exam. Before taking the course in person. Is it the same as the FMS? or is there a time limit? 


    Thank you!

    FMS,


    Does the FMS Level 1 on-line cert consist of only videos?  I understand that it comes with a down-loadable manual, but how much time is spent studying the manual versus studying the videos in order to be ready for testing?  Can the vidoe(s) portion of the on-line material be downloaded as well?  Do you suggest purchasing the  Movement book in addition to the on-line cert materials?

    Thank you for your time.

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 11/9/2016 3:09:12 PM

    Miguel,


    I would suggest reading the manual and watching the videos to best prepare yourself for the exam. The movement book is a great resource to understanding the philosophy and have a greater knowledge of movement, but unfortunately the scoring criteria and set-up for some if the tests are outdated. 

    That being said I would still look at the movement book for future readings.

    Kyle Barrow FMS 11/9/2016 3:09:12 PM

    Emily, 


    The prerequisite course must be taken before attending the live event. It's better to fully understand the material and feel comfortable using the SFMA prior attending because the SFMA is a full hands-on course.

    Brad,


    This feature is available in our Pro 360 software. The Pro360 is a client management system that allows you to input FMS screens and generate automatic workout/corrective exercises based off the results of the screen. Additionally, it allows you to email or print FMS reports of the screen.

    Is it possible to watch the on-line course more then once? I mean like a book, you know. Earlier experience from other courses tells me that some theory needs to be digestive and sunk in for a while, and its more learning to be able to watch the program more than once.

    Helen, 


    The FMS Level 1 Online Course includes access to over 100 minutes of video content and a downloadable manual. The live and online courses contain the same content, however, the main advantage of a live course is the hands-on experience. 
    You'll be screening participants and really getting comfortable performing the FMS.

    Can the clearance test be performed before? If they have pain, then the score is 0 anyways... would this affect the validity of the test?

    Jen 1/23/2017 3:21:52 PM

    I passed the FMS 1 Test (YAHOO).   I have the scoring sheet but I am not sure once you have the numbers where you put them in and come up with what the athletes need to work on.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • author

    Kyle Barrow FMS 1/26/2017 3:34:43 PM

    Jen, 


    Thank you for your message. 

    What you are explaining is covered in our Level 2 course. The level 2 course is designed to help you understand how different tests in the screen can be related and what to do with the information.  It also helps you comprehend how to assign proper exercises based on an individual’s screen, implement corrective exercises into program design
    and determine which patterns should be trained and corrected. 

    However, we do offer a subscription based web platform called Pro360 that allows you total client management. You can create clients, input FMS scores and automatically generate a workout using our intelligent auto builder.

    I hope this helps.

    Kyle Barrow FMS 1/26/2017 3:34:42 PM

    Paula, 


    We perform all clearance tests after the movement pattern because we want to distinguish if the movement pattern first produces pain or does the clearance test produce pain. 
    Either way, we still score pain as 0 and refer to a medical professional for further assessment.
