What to Expect
Thinking of joining our program? Here's what you can expect at UIC.
The Healthy Living Practitioner™ certificate program consists of 22 credit hours, and is usually completed in 9 months.
Some courses are delivered online, while others are a hybrid of online and on-campus.
As the HLP™ program was first offered in 2017-18, changes in the course schedule may occur to better meet the needs of the students and instructors.
|HLP 505||Health Harmonics and Communication — online*||3 hours|
|HLP 525||Exercise and Physical Activity for Healthy Living||3 hours|
|HLP 530||Behavioral Counseling for Healthy Living — online
|HLP 560||Healthy Living Seminar — online**
* HLP 505 can be fully online if students arrange acceptable field visits to cardiac rehabilitation centers and school nutrition programs. Otherwise, there will be 4 in-person sessions.
** HLP 560 is mostly online, except for a single in-person presentation with a lot of flexibility with scheduling.
|HLP 590||Healthy Living Practicum – Prerequisite: HLP 560||3 hours|
HLP 590 has online components, but students initiate a healthy living program at a site of their choosing.
