Are you passionate about exercise, sport, health, and human movement? Consider the Kinesiology program. Kinesiology is the study of the human body in motion and is a growing field that offers a variety of careers and educational opportunities.
A certificate or diploma in Kinesiology can start you on the path towards a career as a:
Personal or athletic trainer
Coach or instructor
Health care consultant
Sport psychologist or sociologist
Most Kinesiology courses are delivered in the classroom with some available online. You can choose to take either the one-year certificate or the two-year diploma – both of which transfer into Kinesiology degree programs throughout Western Canada (we recommend working with an Education Advisor for credit transfer).
As one of our instructors is a certified Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) Exercise Physiologist and Personal Trainer instructor/examiner, you can also be eligible for CSEP Personal Training certification at the end of your second year – a year ahead of students at many other institutions.
