The Practical Training Program will cover fitness assessment, program design, upper- and lower body strength training, and flexibility training. It will include hands-on instruction as well as basic assessment on drills designed to give fitness professionals the confidence to perform their jobs safely and effectively.
All participants will receive 1.5 Continuing Education Credits, which meets the 2-year requirement for CECs needed to maintain current certification.

ACE is also recruiting clubs to be host facilities for upcoming Practical Training Programs. Host facilities receive one complementary pass and preferred pricing on programs held at their club. More information on becoming a host facility, or bringing other ACE educational programs to a club, is available from Graham Melstrand, western area manager, at 800/825-3636, Ext. 754 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
