Individuals do not have to have a national fitness certification in order to be hired as a Personal Trainer with W&M Campus Recreation. However, once hired, Personal Trainers-in-Training must obtain a national Personal Trainer Certification before the start of the next semester (e.g. students hired in the spring must get their national certification over the summer so they can start work in the fall). Students must have either taken the Personal Training Methods Class (INTR 110-14) or Health Related Exercise Prescription (KINES 295) in order to apply.
