The personal training certificate program is designed to be completed in one semester, either fall or spring. Several classes are available online in both semeesters. However, the Personal Trainer class, because of the hands-on learning that takes place, is not available online.

Personal Trainers are becoming a very popular avenue for individuals to obtain their health - fitness goals.

Our students, upon completion of the one-semester program, are eligible to sit for the national certification exam at 50% of the regular cost. IWCC plans to host the exam each semester, depending of the number of students who are eligible. Upon successful completion of the exam, the student will be certified by the National Council on Strength and Fitness.
