The health/fitness technician program is a two-year professional/technical curriculum offered at Spokane Falls Community College. This program is a great place to start to build a career in the health/fitness industry.
You'll learn about sports nutrition, biomechanics, personal training, health screenings and physiology. And you'll get additional courses including first aid/CPR and stress management. Graduates from this program are prepared for several of the top-rated personal training certifications.
You can go right to work in personal training, youth fitness or programs for the elderly. Or you can transfer to a four-year exercise science program.
