New and Exciting Course

Biddeford Adult Education is offering a new course this semester and we are very proud to do it in conjunction with W.I.T.S. and the YMCA of Northern York County.

Personal Trainer National Certification

According to the latest fitness industry salary guide, Personal Trainers are earning on average of $34 an hour.  Employers like 24 Hour Fitness, LA Fitness and Gold’s Gyms are just a few of the thousands of club employers that seek out our graduates each semester. Whether a career move or for your own personal knowledge, get all the information you need to become a Certified Personal Trainer. This challenging course is taught over a 8-week period for better retention and hands on skill competency. The national exams are held on the 9th week. This course is formatted as a 62-hour program and is comprised of 16 hours of lecture, 16 hours of hands on practical training and a 30-hour internship that walks many graduates right into a job!! The course prepares you for success with key topics that include biomechanics, exercise physiology, fitness testing, and equipment usage and health assessment. CPR/AED and a 30-hour internship are required to receive the certificate.  W.I.T.S. is the only major certifying body in the country providing comprehensive practical training and internship components.  You will be prepared to work with clients and stand out in any gym as “the expert” in your field.
