Course Description:

Become a NCCA Accredited Certified Personal Trainer

The CCTI @ IRSC has partnered with World Instructor Training Schools (W.I.T.S.) to offer a personal trainer course as a great way to prepare for the on campus national exam and live your dream of becoming a successful personal trainer.

Certified by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), this challenging course is for candidates wanting LIVE instruction with in-depth, hands-on practical labs to master the career skills and knowledge.

The course consists of 15 hours of lecture on key topics like biomechanics, exercise physiology, fitness testing, equipment usage and health assessments. The best part of the course is the 15 hours of hands-on practical training labs. You will role play with assessing clients, programming, performing proper exercises, presentation skills and more. Reading a book and testing does not get it done in the real world.

As a special bonus Certified Personal Trainer students may take advantage of our 30-hour employer internship to get the advanced Level 2 Certified personal Trainer credential at no additional costs.


You may work right after passing the CPT exams!

  • Required Textbook: 7th edition of the Fitness Professional’s Handbook with web resources (ISBN-13: 9781492523376) E-book available.
  • Proof of Current CPR/AED to obtain Level 1 Certified Personal Trainer

 Being a personal trainer certified with an NCCA accreditation sets you apart as a qualified fitness professional associated with other professions and occupations including nurses, physical therapists, financial professionals, respiratory therapists, counselors, emergency technicians and more. Having the NCCA accredited personal trainer certification ensures employers that you have the highest level of credibility for training clients. In many cases, employers may increase your pay to acknowledge this additional credential.

 W.I.T.S. is approved and recognized by many higher learning institutions out of Washington, DC.  Some of the organizations include the American Council of Education (ACE,) the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET,) the Board of Certification (BOC) for Athletic Trainers, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA,) the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB,) and the Veterans Education and Training Administration (VA.)

Special note: If there are low numbers, the LIVE CPT course may only be offered as Hybrid CPT. Please ask us for details.

The Hybrid/Blended Certified Personal Trainer course is half online & half onsite at a fitness center.

The Hybrid version has all of the awesome lectures online with mentors/teachers working with you every step of the way. As a bonus, the practical labs are still offered LIVE so you are able to master the skills. Complete the lecture work online, then join the LIVE class practical labs each week at their designated day and time.
