As the leading global provider of fitness and wellness education, canfitpro empowers people to lead passionate and fulfilling lives through safe, fun, and effective physical activity. 

Certification Course

In order to improve the chance for successful certification, we recommend that all candidates prepare for the Certification Exam by attending a Certification Course. This training course will teach the theory and practical requirements for the exam.


To verify knowledge and understanding, we recommend that each candidate purchase a copy of the Certification Study Guide and Course Manual. The guide is a series of questions to assist in final preparation for the exam process and contains outlines for the theory and practical exams.


We recommend that candidates attempt the exam approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks after taking the course. This time frame is recommended in order to allow the participant to properly prepare for the exam. 


Written Exam

The written exam is a collection of challenging questions. The exam has been developed by canfitpro based on the expected performance standards.​ 


Fitness Instructor Specialist (FIS) The written exam is 2.5 hours in length made up of 75 multiple choice questions and short answer questions. ​A passing grade for the written exam is a combined average of the multiple choice questions and the short answer questions/the client case study equaling a minimum of 80%. 


If unsuccessful, the candidate must complete both the multiple choice and the short answer questions/the client case study portions again.​ The written exam must be completed within one (1) year from the completion of the course.


Practical Evaluation

The candidate is evaluated on technical ability and training skill in this component of the certification process. Application of fitness theory into practical demonstration is assessed for the Fitness Instructor Specialist (FIS) certification.​  


The evaluation will measure the candidate’s capability of leading a safe and effective fitness class for participants of all levels. The practical exam must consist of a 45 or 60 minute fitness class, covering all mandatory fitness components listed in the Fitness Instructor Specialist study guide.


A passing grade on the practical exam is 80%.  The practical exam must be successfully completed within six (6) months of the written exam.  We recommend that candidates invest some personal practice time (at least 20 hours) before attempting the Practical Exam. 


We will line up a time and date that this works for you within 6 months of passing your written exam.  If you require assistance getting space I will be able to help you out.

What is a PROTRAINER?

PRO TRAINERS are the qualified educators across Canada who are partners in delivering canfitpro Fitness Instructor Specialist courses and exams.

canfitpro PRO TRAINERS work in their local community to offer the Certification Preparation Courses that assist candidates in the theoretical and practical preparation for the exam. The PRO TRAINER hosts a theory exam and performs a practical evaluation for all candidates to complete the certification process.  Your PRO TRAINER is your local contact and is available to answer questions about the certification program and the courses or exams being offered. You will work closely with me as your PRO TRAINER until you have completed the certification process.
