College of San Mateo offers many opportunities for students to become certified professionals in the fitness industry. The labor market demand for certified fitness professionals continues to remain strong with abundant employment opportunities. Our courses prepare students to take the certification tests from various national organizations prior to employment. Some of our programs only take one semester to complete.
While some programs elsewhere prepare students in a one weekend "crash course," College of San Mateo's programs emphasize the retention of knowledge necessary to be successful in the industry. Our programs are taught by professionals who have master’s degrees and successful industry experience. Their backgrounds and experience provide our students with the advantage that hiring managers are seeking. In addition to providing students with a wealth of information, CSM's certificate programs also provide resources about employment opportunities at a fraction of the cost of weekend-certifying agencies.
