Become a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer – Calgary & Edmonton - Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma
Our Personal Fitness Trainer diploma programs in Calgary and Edmonton are a great fit for anyone looking to transition into the exciting career of fitness. Over the past few years there’s been a major growth in people’s awareness of their own physical health. As a result, many new fitness facilities are opening to meet this increasing demand. Consequently, there’s a growing demand for Personal Fitness Trainers to educate, motivate and train this growing clientele.
Elevated Learning Academy’s diploma program is designed for post secondary students of all ages and backgrounds. The fitness industry is extremely diverse, and provides a wide range of employment opportunities. Our students include recent high school graduates, those transitioning careers from more sedentary jobs, and even those looking for a fun ‘retirement-job’.
Become A Personal Fitness Trainer In Four Months
A unique feature of our diploma program is that it’s only four months in length. We provide a concise, practical, and dynamic curriculum taught in both the classroom and a fitness facility setting. Our intention is to teach students everything they need to know to enter the workforce as quickly as possible, rather than spending their time acquiring knowledge that is nice to know, but will likely never be used in the profession. Comparable diploma programs are two years in length, and are not nearly as hands-on or dynamic as Elevated Learning Academy’s.
Another unique feature of our program compared to other academic institutions is the greater number of certifications and designations that our students graduate with. Our students graduate with a diploma in Personal Fitness Training, which includes an internationally recognized Personal Fitness Training certification through the American Council on Exercise, as well as their Level C First Aid and CPR/AED certification through the Canadian Red Cross. Preparations and examinations for these additional certifications are included within the curriculum, program length and cost: no additional time or money is needed to acquire them. No other Personal Fitness Trainer program in Calgary, Edmonton (or anywhere in Alberta) includes these additional certifications within their curriculum. Graduates of other academic institutions would need to spend additional time and money to obtain these types of certifications prior to being able to start their careers in the fitness industry.
Our Personal Fitness Trainer curriculum is very comprehensive, and includes studying the following topics:
- machines & exercises
- special populations
- program design
- mind-body exercise
In addition, we also want to ensure that our graduates’ have a successful career launch by preparing them for employment and self-employment. In order to do this effectively, we’ve integrated into our curriculum topics such as:
- interviewing skills
- business planning
- legal guidelines
- professional responsibilities
- effective communication
- sales & marketing
We’ve even included a component on website development. Each of our students creates their own personalized website that can later be used to promote themselves to potential clients, employers, and other industry professionals.
We Provide Excellent Employment Opportunities
We provide our students with exceptional employment opportunities by connecting them with prospective employers. We match interested students with hiring employers by sending the employers our students’ resumes and making email introductions. We also invite employers into our classroom to meet the students and provide information about their organizations as well as recounting about their own career paths. Many of these classroom visits turn into mini-recruitment fairs, as they enable employers to personally meet the students and pass out business cards to interested applicants.
We pride ourselves on preparing our students for their new career launches. One of the ways we accomplish this, is by only hiring instructors that are practicing Personal Fitness Trainers. On a daily basis, our instructors bring into the classroom real and current examples from their daily lives and past experiences in the fitness industry.
