Learn to work with fitness and health industry professionals for hands-on experience working with fitness facilities and health centers members. You will intern for 60 total hours in this course.
How it works: You will research and find sites of interest with the instructor's help. The internship site coordinator and you will agree to an hourly/weekly schedule that accommodates everyone's schedule. It is reviewed by the instructor and confirmed. The internship site coordinator tracks hours and completes an evaluation form at the end of the internship, confirming hours served and providing you an evaluation. During the internship, you will complete projects and evaluate the site as if you were a fitness/health manager and give the site a final grade for future reference.
