Exercise Leader - Technical Certificates
The Exercise Leader Certificate is designed for students interested in becoming certified as an Exercise Leader. Upon completion of this certificate, students are eligible to take the ACSM Exercise Leader Certification Exam.
Students will be prepared to make physical fitness assessments, prescribe exercise programs, and instruct individuals and groups in physical fitness activities. This one-year program is particularly appropriate for those who want to expand or upgrade their skills. Students completing the certificate program have the option to continue their study toward the completion of the Associate in Science in Exercise Science degree. Students who successfully complete the Certificate Program will be prepared to sit for national certification examinations. A 2.00 cumulative G.P.A. is required to graduate from KCKCC.
Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
