Exam Reference List

A Certification Exam Reference List is provided as a resource to give certification exam takers ideas about references that they may use to prepare for the exam while AASP works to create study materials for the future. This resource is not intended to serve as an exclusive list of references that will help a candidate prepare effectively for the exam, nor is it a guarantee that all information on the exam is contained within these references. These references and others were used to help write exam questions.

Certified Mental Performance Consultant® Essentials Resource Guide

AASP anticipates releasing its Certified Mental Performance Consultant® Essentials Resource Guide in May 2021. The resource, developed in partnership with Human Kinetics, will be an interactive web text, complete with content, video, check-in exercises, quizzes, and a practice exam aimed at preparing candidates to sit for the CMPC® exam. The guide will include 14 chapters across 4 thematic sections that cover all the knowledge areas tested on the exam. Learn more about the forthcoming study guide here.

Exam Review Webinars

If you are a current CMPC® needing to take the certification exam as part of your recertification or looking to attain your credentials for the very first time, we want to help you prepare! The hour-long sessions will be set up to provide a general overview of specific knowledge areas covered on the test.
