Apply Your New Skills at Your Externship
What better way to learn than by doing something? The Professional Fitness Trainer program at Branford Hall requires that each student complete an externship. During the externship, you will get real-world experience in a fitness center where you can apply your new skills. You will gain first-hand experience in working with others in areas such as exercise testing, resistance training, weightlifting combinations, program design, nutrition, business management, and exercise physiology. This gives you on-the-job training and builds your resume before you have even completed your training. This is one more way that Branford Hall students come prepared to their first job.
Professional Fitness Trainer Programs and Certification
At Branford Hall, the Career Placement Services department encourages all students who have performed successfully in our courses to take a certification examination. Certification demonstrates your commitment to your new career, and may provide you with better career opportunities, better pay, and more job security.
The courses in the Professional Fitness Trainer program are designed to prepare students to take the Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certification exam offered by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This nationally-recognized certification will boost your resume and show potential employers that you are well qualified.
Graduates of the Professional Fitness Trainer program at Branford Hall are eligible to take this certification exam if they choose. The decision to take the exam and the cost of the exam are the responsibility of the student.
