Personal Trainer Certificate


Return to: Programs of Study - listed by School

Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 16*


*If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed transferable college credits at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 17 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

To obtain a certificate, a student must earn a grade of “C” or better in each of the HLTH and HFMJ courses required in the certificate.

Program Outcomes:


Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. develop safe and effective individualized exercise prescriptions based on an individual’s goals and health history;
  2. conduct fitness assessments in laboratory and field-test settings in a fitness, hospital, or wellness facility; and
  3. successfully complete the requirements for the American Council on Exercise Personal Training Certification program.

Program Description:


The Health and Fitness Studies certificate prepares students for a professional career as either a personal trainer or a fitness specialist. Students learn how to conduct physical and health risk assessments, interpret assessment results, design exercise programs, provide fitness instruction and supervise fitness facilities.
