If you are not currently certified and are looking to gain more education and experience, Sun Devil Fitness & Wellness offers the Instructor Prep Course. You will learn how to design and lead a group wellness class through a mentorship program with a current instructor. The Instructor Prep Course is offered once per semester during the Fall and Spring semesters. The course fee is $50, and includes the option to purchase, at a discounted rate, an AFAA certification course* to help prospective instructors fulfill the
nationally accredited certification requirement for the position. The AFAA course fee includes online modules, study materials, a textbook, practice exams, and the certification exam.

*Note that the AFAA certification is not the only certification that meets the nationally accredited certification requirement. Instructors are welcome to obtain any certification that meets their budgetary or functional interests, and should verify with the Fitness team that the certification of interest fulfills the job requirements.
