MFC Fitness Instructor Training Courses
The Manitoba Fitness Council has recognized the following training courses. For more information on times, locations, and course registration fees, contact the training agency directly.
Although there is a minimum and maximum number of hours required for each course, courses are offered in different formats (i.e. condensed over one or two weekends or once a week for 5 weeks). It is strongly suggested that you consider the course that best suits your learning style. Attendance in all classes is mandatory in order to receive the completion certificate required by MFC to write the exam.
The first step in becoming a certified fitness instructor is to take the Exercise Theory Course. Once you have completed the Exercise Theory Course, you can then decide which certification course you would like to take. To view all the course dates, please click on the course you are interested in, on the left side of this page.
Please note: The MFC organizes courses in the rural areas depending on needs and interests. Contact MFC if you would like to discuss the potential for a course in your area by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 204-235-1245.
