Description:This program is directed toward understanding the role and safe application of exercise for health maintenance, improvement and rehabilitation.

Kinesiology is now a regulated health profession in Ontario. You will gain the skills and knowledge needed to function as a health professional and to write the competency exam to become a registered kinesiologist. You will take courses and have hands-on learning opportunities that will prepare you to complete theory and practical examinations leading to Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology certifications (Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Exercise Physiologist).

Students will enter the generalist program; however, they can take courses from both Health and Wellness and Exercise Science as electives as long as they have the pre-requisites.
