All students study the anatomy, physiology and other theory modules as e-learning. This is done through a variety of interactive videos and resources. Students work at their own pace and have their educational supervisors for constant support throughout.

Students are expected to then attend 4 days of face to face teaching. These days will be used to consolidate the learning from e-learning and will mainly focus on the practical aspects of the course.

Students will cover the following key areas:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Exercise Programming
  • Health and Safety
  • Supporting Clients
  • Delivering and Coaching
  • Exercise programmes
