Two new areas of study at Cerritos College are the Fitness Specialist and Athletic Trainer Aide Certificate Programs. These Certificates are interrelated and will appeal to students interested in fitness, athletics and/or sports injuries. They are designed to be completed in two semesters for students who attend full time and may lead to immediate employment opportunities. Students may also successfully prepare for several national certifications in fitness, strength and conditioning, and athletic training. Each program will also provide students with transfer options in various areas of study.
