This program has a flexible rolling start - join the Certified Clinical Exercise Therapist Program whenever you're ready.

All one and two day courses and Practical Days for your Certification are included in your tuition.

You can have the value of your First Line courses count towards your Certification tuition at any time!

We bet you've never seen a Certification stuffed with so many professional and practical skills before ....

The Certified Clinical Exercise Therapist Program is very relevant to today's market challenges no matter what your background.

We'll teach you how to practice confidently within your own scope of practice. 

Are you ready to become a CCET and get (and keep!) the clients you want?

We’ve got your back - for as long as it takes you to complete the CCET Program!

You can complete your Certification in about a year or you can complete the Certification course by course at your own speed.

Great flexibility to fit your practice and your life!

Many new health care providers (no matter their field of study or area of interest) are unsure about how to assess and progress bodies of different ages and abilities.

We know you might have questions about how you’ll fit in with other health care providers - in a shared practice space or in a referral association.

We definitely understand the challenges of building a private practice and/or becoming a great employee in a wellness centre.

During the Certification process you'll learn to:

  • Assess and reassess your clients from a toolbox of options with confidence - not by using a cookie cutter approach
  • Consistently show up and get the most progress possible for your clients through those all important first few sessions
  • Get comfortable putting together your initial interview questions, deciding on systems for note taking and record keeping, and consider options for your exercise program design and delivery
  • Feel confident when speaking with physicians and more experienced health care providers

It's all here!

Put your skills to work immediately - work with clients at the same time as you participate in the Certified Clinical Exercise Therapist Program

You could be bringing in more income than you are paying out each month for the certification!

We'll do our best to help you get referrals and new clients and keep the clients you have coming back for more!

This learning experience and professional designation is not offered by any college, university, or professional association.

It's unique, highly practical, challenging, and led by recognized clinical leaders.

You will be formally evaluated by your instructors. There are  assignments, presentations, and both theory and practical exams required in each course.

These evaluations are based upon our experiences as clinicians, students, instructors, and professors at national and international colleges and universities.

We understand the combination of theoretical and practical skills that will help you get ahead.
