Personal Trainer School

Certified Personal Training School Option

The NCSF Personal Trainer School is a structured 32 contact hour program designed for those students looking for maximal supervision and structure throughout their learning experience. Each class addresses pertinent topics of the health fitness professional. From health screening and assessment to comprehensive program design for multiple populations, the course empowers students with the skills necessary to become a qualified fitness professional.


Complementing each week's lecture component are various interactive practical lab experiences. The lab experiences are an important aspect of the course as they bridge the gap between theory and practice and help to reinforce the key course concepts. It is vital that students become competent in the application of professional skills to ensure safe and effective delivery of service to their respective clientele. Sample lab experiences include resistance training programming, body composition analysis techniques, and nutritional reviews.


After the completion of the Personal Trainer School students should be well prepared to take the NCSF Certified Personal Trainer examination. The exam is given at Prometric testing centers in nearly 400 locations throughout the United States and Canada. If you do not register for the exam at the time of your Personal Trainer School enrollment you may do so at anytime after by contacting the NCSF at 800-772-NCSF(6273).
