*Anyone attending in-person courses/events will be required to show proof of vaccination on site*
Events & Courses will be posted below as they become available. If a course you want is not posted below that means dates and/or locations have not been confirmed for that course yet. Please check again at a later date.
Any courses currently planned are subject to COVID-19 restrictions. Should a course have to be cancelled a refund or a credit for a later course will be given to all who registered and paid.
PT (personal trainer), MBL (yoga fitness leader), OAL (older adult leader), RT (resistance trainer) and the Barre add-on course for GELs will not be offered until 2022.
We take payments via cheque or PayPal only. If you are unfamiliar with how to use PayPal you can see their tutorials on the PayPal YouTube channel. If you are mailing a cheque our address is at the bottom of this, and every, page.
For courses & events held via Zoom please make sure your Zoom account, camera set-up etc. is in place before the event/course starts. If you are new to Zoom you can find tutorials on the Zoom YouTube channel.
If a course you want is full please add yourself to the wait list (the wait list option will be visible when you try to register). Many times people de-register before the course begins allowing wait listed students to get in. If a course has a significant wait list we will also look at putting on an additional offering of that course or we will attempt to find a larger venue.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unusual time,
The Nova Scotia Fitness Association is a non-profit organization.
For course descriptions and full certification requirements, including a free checklist for each certification, please see our Certifications page.
NSFA courses may be taken in any order, but all of the courses required for each certification must complete (including passing all exams) before the certification will be issued.
If you wish to complete the Exercise Theory Course via self-directed distance education please purchase the course through the Manitoba Fitness Council at this link.
To complete this course you must write and pass the national Exercise Theory exam. MFC is our partner organization in the NFLA so the content is the same & we all use the same national exam. You can arrange your exam by emailing email@example.com. Please note a $30 exam fee will apply.
