Personal trainer? CPTN certification

I'm going for my CPTN (Certified Professional Trainers Network) certification. I just started a six week course (The Art and Science of Personal Training)  for the first leg of certification at the local (fairly) college. The first class was last Thursday, May 10.

May 10th agenda:
  • introduction and introductions
  • consulting and interpersonal communication skills
  • counseling questions
  • health screening and health conditions
  • the business of personal training
  • legal liabilities and professionalism

We're going to be crammed full of a lot of information in a short period, but so far it's been very enjoyable and interesting.
