Personal Fitness Trainer Certification


Course Description

Requirement: Purchase textbook and complete enclosed reading assignment before the first class meeting. Join this fun field and be a part of what the US Labor Department and the fitness industry have documented as a high demand profession. Whether you desire a career change, or want to build your personal knowledge, get the information you need to become a Certified Personal Trainer. This challenging class is taught over an 8-week period. The National Exam is held on the 9th week. Sixteen hours of lectures include anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, health screening, etc. In addition, sixteen hours of "hands on" practical training prepares you to actually work with clients one-on-one and provides a great opportunity to network with employers. Certification requires passing the written and practical exam, completing a 30-hour internship and having current CPR/AED credentials. At the last class meeting, students need to be available for the entire class duration, but may not be on-site the entire time. A half-hour lunch is not included in CEU total.
