Fitness and Health Promotion (3040)

2 Years - 4 Semesters      Ontario College Diploma

Clinical and Field Placements

During the four semesters of this program, you will be able to gain valuable work experience and practically apply what you learn in class by visiting and working in private clubs, fitness facilities, schools and other organizations.

To learn and work in these areas, you`ll need to complete and bring in certain forms at least two weeks before being scheduled to start your field work. Information regarding the requirements you will need will be sent to you once you apply to and are accepted into the program. Without completing the forms and submitting the forms to us in time, you will not be able to do your field work.

You will also need to complete a criminal record check with vulnerable sector search prior to commencing placement as you will be working with vulnerable populations during your placements. There is a cost to having this done, and we can let you know more about it once you get here and begin your studies.

You will also complete a health assessment form that will also be sent to you once you apply and are accepted into the program which you will need to complete and bring to the College`s Health Centre.

The Health Assessment Form needs to have the following:


Valid and current two step TB test

You will also need to show that you have completed:

  • First Aid Certificate and CPR Level C
  • WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System)

There is a cost to taking some of these tests, and you will have to pay for these. Finally, you will need to have a G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher in order to be considered for placement.
