(Northern Ontario, Canada)
Being from Northern Ontario Canada, the choices are far and few between, but I'm still looking into the choices...CanFit is probably the best, the YMCA- sometimes offers one...Georgian College does as well. I know I MUST get certified and CPR is a must as well.
My main question is coming up after my story...I've been searching for courses, thru College, YMCA, etc and have also looked into a bunch of correspondence schools PCDI, ICS, and Stratford Careers...all three carry what seems to me to be a great variety with great topics relating to Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer, I think the ICS course outline seems the best and much better than just taking a weekend crash course at the college, plus seems to cover more and seems to offer much more for my $$$$. I would like to learn as much as I can in as many areas as I can, without quitting my day job...at least not YET if I can help it...
So finally, here is my question: Do you think my decision to do the ICS course is a smart move or not? or has anyone heard anything positive or negative about any of the schools....thanks sooo much....Su......
