The student will normally choose to study from:
1. First Aid
The student must complete a First Aid Certificate with either the Red Cross or Red Crescent, or an equivalent course with a reputable body that holds good standing both nationally and internationally (e.g. St. John's Ambulance).
Part 1: Practical work in a health and fitness workplace (e.g. a gymnasium or health club) under supervision of a qualified consultant or instructor. An instructor is considered qualified if:
- They hold a degree or diploma in Fitness or human movement; or
- They were registered as a Fitness Leader under the old Fitness Leader registration scheme conducted by AFAC; or
- They studied a reputable and relevant course, of 200 hrs or more duration; and have the equivalent of 2 years or more (part time or full time) industry experience, within a reputable gymnasium or health club.
- This practical must be documented in detail for 40 hours, by your supervisor, in a log book supplied by the school.
Part 2: Work Experience in a reputable and relevant situation for a period of 100 hours. This may be paid or unpaid work, in self employment, or in the employ of someone else. Either way, you must validate the nature and scope of this work by supplying two references (eg. from employers, supervisors, colleagues or clients).
The references need to be letters which provide the following information:
- Name and contact details of the writer.
- Your relationship with the writer, and their interest in the fitness industry
- The hours that you have worked, and the dates between which that work was undertaken.
- What you actually did
- Their opinion of the quality of the work you undertook.
