This 14 week personal training certification preparation course will prepare participants for the internationally accredited (NCCA) PTA Global Certification Preparation Course. This class will consist of educational presentations and hands on activities related to core fitness areas including: exercise programming, functional anatomy, program design, posture and assessment, liability and risk, nutrition, and behavior and communication. Although this course is not for academic credit, it does require a substantial time commitment both inside and outside of class. No prior experience is required.
PTA Global goes beyond providing only the core science and fitness knowledge, including education on behavior and communication and understanding personality types so trainers are successful with a variety of clientele. Through their systems, sciences, and tools, PTA Global equips trainers with the means necessary to become successful in the fitness industry.
