Client experiences and field education in semesters three and four
To gain hands-on experience and to build confidence in newly learned skills, students in semester 3 are required to provide various fitness and health related services to clients in our WAVE Fitness Studios. Faculty supervise this on-site lab work to support student learning.
In addition to the internal internship opportunity in the WAVE Fitness Studios, during the final seven weeks of semester 4, students will spend almost 200 hours at an external field education setting of their choice.
Many of our placement partners have been hosting and hiring our student interns for over a generation. They find our graduates with strong technical skills can transition from the school environment to the workforce and "hit the pavement running." Many of the staff who hire our graduates are George Brown alumni themselves and now have more responsibility, including hiring and training new staff.
There is an opportunity to apply for an international field education experience. Previous placements have occurred in India, Haiti and the U.S.
Some institutions and programs require field education students to have a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC)
Graduates will be prepared for employment in a broad range of fitness and health related sectors including:
Graduates provide services in the areas of:
These services reflect the academic and applied curriculum. The program is constantly being reviewed and modified to ensure that the skills being developed are those required of a graduate for employment.
Graduates of this program may qualify for exemptions in some university physical education and kinesiology programs.
In addition, after a summer bridging semester, qualifying graduates are able to complete the Kinesiology program at the University of Guelph – Humber in two years. Alternately, graduates can apply to complete a degree in Kinesiology at York University in a significantly reduced timeframe (between two and two and a half years).
