Our certification prep courses are tailored to the students. There are no requirements, but having some experience with exercise, physiology, anatomy, etc. is helpful. But we cover those topics along with many others. Students can attend classes as often as they are able. There are small group settings, private and semi-private optioins. The course system is designed to take approximately three months with practical experience, lecture, and practice test taking. You can check out our website at www.hawaiifitnessacademy.com . Oh, and you need to come to Hawaii for the classes.
