When prospective students are looking to make a career change, it’s important to receive an education that truly prepares them for success after graduation. Students don’t want to enroll at a school that just takes their money or that has unattentive instructors. At WellSpring, students will find exactly what they are looking for with small classes, dedicated instructors, and high certification passage rates.
Each year, thousands of students begin school with the dream of becoming a personal trainer, but passing the certification exam isn’t so easy. According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), across the nation, only 67 percent of personal trainers passed their initial certification exam. WellSpring graduates pass their initial exam at a rate of 85 percent! After passing the exam and completing their education, students will receive an Associates of Occupational Science degree and the ability to sit for a second NASM certification.
WellSpring centers its programs around attentive, qualified instructors whose hands-on classes make sure students are prepared for their future careers. Jenny Shults, fitness and nutrition coaching program manager, explained further, “Students get the real-world experience they’re going to need out in the field. I would advise anyone thinking about this program to understand how much this hands-on experience will really help them and to learn from people who have been in the industry for a long time.”
