The LCC plan of study in Sports & Exercise Science includes classes teaching the hands-on skills needed for care and prevention of athletic injuries as well as supervised opportunities to apply these skills to athletes. There is rigorous coursework in the anatomy and physiology of sports injuries. This Associate of Science degree is designed to prepare a student to transfer to a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training, Pre-physical Therapy, Sports and Conditioning or other sports-related areas. Without further preparation, our course of study in Sports and Fitness Management prepares a student to take the National Council on Strength and Fitness certified personal trainer exam (NCSF-CPT). Successful completion of this exam results in certification as a Certified Personal Trainer.
