Stackable Health & Fitness Microcredentials

Not ready to enroll in a two-year program? Consider DCC’s health and fitness microcredentials, short-term programs you can complete one by one and later apply to an ESW degree.

Our personal trainer, sports nutrition, and strength training options teach skills you can put to work right away. Some prepare you to take national certifying exams.
Each requires three courses for a total of nine credits and can usually be finished in a semester.
