About the Course

Course Details

The Certification Prep and First Aid and CPR Avocational Course prepares you to take a nationally recognized certification exam to become a Certified Personal Trainer.  You will also become certified in First Aid and CPR.

As businesses, government, and insurance organizations continue to recognize the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees, incentives to join gyms or other types of health clubs are expected to increase the need for fitness trainers and instructors.
