Students successfully completing a degree in Exercise and Health Promotion will be prepared for a variety of employment opportunities.
The degree is designed to allow the student to sit for the American College of Sports Medicine's Health and Fitness Instructor (HFI) Certification. The health and fitness certification allows the student to become qualified for career pursuits in the university, corporate, commercial, hospital, and community settings.
The HFI has knowledge and skills in management and administration and training and supervising entry level personnel. The HFI is skilled in conducting risk stratification, conducting physical fitness assessments and interpreting results, constructing appropriate exercise prescriptions and motivating apparently healthy individuals with medically controlled diseases to adopt and maintain behaviors to promote healthy lifestyle (ACSM, 2009).
