The course is delivered over seven ‘contact learning’ days. Pre course reading and home study are not essential as the course is designed to cover every aspect of the syllabus in detail. The first two and a half days are classroom based and exclusively devoted to Unit 01 theory. Online learning is available for Unit 01 as an alternative to attending the ‘tutor led’ sessions. The remaining four and a half days cover Unit 02 to Unit 6 (Units 5 & 6 in the context of your choice). All students study Unit 01 together and then split into Gym, ETM or Children's Fitness groups for the practical modules. Gym, ETM and Children's Fitness group sessions are delivered by separate tutors.
