The 2014 Fitness Management class at Hocking College received a perfect pass rate on the American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) test on June 2, 2014.
This year was first time the program incorporated the ACE test into the curriculum, all 13 students passed and are now ACE-CPT. The students are currently in the process of completing their final classes and then an internship before leaving Hocking College with their degree and certification.
Students pursuing an Associate of Applied Science in Fitness Management are prepared for employment in the fitness industry beginning as a CPT, Group Fitness Instructor (GFI), Certified Lifeguard and manager of a fitness facility or ownership of a personal business. Classmates work together to gain hands-on experience by executing campus and community events such as a weightlifting competition, an indoor triathlon, a pump and run and a 5K.
The program’s new affiliation with the ACE test provides graduates with the skills and certifications necessary to start working as a CPT, GFI or a lifeguard at fitness facilities around the world. In addition to the tests offered in the program’s curriculum, graduates are also eligible to take national certification exams.
