This program will provide students with the knowledge, skills and experience required for careers as health and fitness professionals.

The Fitness and Health Promotion diploma program allows you to be at the leading edge of the healthy revolution as you learn from expert, industry-connected faculty. Skills learned go far beyond the fundamentals of exercise to include anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, business administration and marketing, nutrition, injury management, special events planning and more. Graduates will have the skills to identify needs in the community and design programs for individuals and groups meeting a wide range of objectives and goals. Knowledge in program administration and business practices, an awareness of community resources, and the ability to communicate effectively with managers, boards, committees, and funding agencies will make the graduate highly marketable.

Additional areas of skills in operation/management of fitness facilities, program administration and promotion, fitness testing procedures, planning/conducting of physical exercise programs, and development of leadership ability and performance will prove to be assets when seeking employment as a fitness professional.
