*July 9,013 Update
We will be offering a CPT course later in the fall. In order to be prepared, please review the two following announcements from CSEP-PATH.
The CSEP-CPT designation is the industry minimum standard for fitness appraisal and personal fitness training. This is the ideal certification for students working in health and fitness centres with healthy participants. CSEP-CPTs are sanctioned to administer appropriate submaximal appraisal protocols to apparently healthy individuals, interpret appraisal results, develop a specific health-related program of exercise for the appraised individual, and act as a personal trainer. There is no comparable personal fitness training certification in Canada.
The CSEP-CPT course will be held over 3 days. The course will be run in FIN 252 and is restricted to HMKN students. The course will involve both theory and practical components. You should come prepared each day to be active. The course will run from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day, with additional practice time, if needed. Day 1-3, will involve a review and practice that will prepare the student for examination. At the end of Day 3 (3 hours) there will be a written exam. The practical exam will take place on Day 4 (students are paired into 2hr time-slots for their practical examination).
