HFFC-CPT Fellows and HFFC-CEP Fellows


To apply for the designation of an HFFC™ Fellow, university and college professors must submit to the HFFC™ (www.thehffc.ca) a curriculum vitae and the syllabus of the health-related and performance-related physical activity/exercise science courses that they teach. The 

HFFC™ does not require prospective HFFC-CPT™ Fellows or HFFC-CEP™ Fellows to attend an HFFC™ workshop and pass the associated examination before they can submit the names of their students who have met the requirements of the HFFC-CPT™ or HFFC-CEP™ certification.  


Eligible ​applicant whose names are submitted for HFFC-CPT™ or ​HFFC-CEP™ certification by HFFC-CPT™ Fellows or HFFC-CEP™ Fellows are not required to pass any additional examination to receive ​HFFC-CPT™ or ​HFFC-CEP™ certification. Rather, the ​HFFC™ certifications recognize the specialized evidence-based theoretical and practical education provided by ​HFFC™ Fellows at accredited universities and colleges which meet the Core Competencies delineated on this website. However, to be eligible for the HFFC-CPT™ and ​HFFC-CEP™, students must have a grade of B+ or higher in the health and fitness specialization courses and a cumulative grade point average equal to or greater than B+. These standards are consistent with the requirements of other health professions recognizing the importance of advanced post-secondary training in the exercise sciences.
