Course Information
  • Manage Risk in a gym, health club or coaching situation
  • Expand your  skills in sport and fitness, and enhance your career opportunities

There are many different services and products on offer which promise to improve or maintain a persons state of health, fitness or wellbeing, and any (or all) of these goods and services might be considered to be part of the health and fitness industry.  An attitude of wellness and health also is an important indicator on the outcome of training. Such things as self esteem, motivation, reinforcement, and stress and its management can affect wellbeing as well as longevity. It is important to have healthy and realistic outlooks in these areas to promote health and wellbeing.

As a result of the wide variety of activities that may be considered as being a fitness activity it is very difficult to provide detailed lists of safety precautions for each one.  There are some general rules that should be considered for all activities, including:

  • Use the correct equipment, and ensure it is in good condition.

  • Avoid unnecessarily dangerous situations such as busy roads, poor weather, poor visibility.

  • Don't overdo any activity.
  • Be aware of any health conditions that participants may have, and the relevant medical clearances that should be obtained.
  • Participants should be aware of their own personal limitations and exercise at a pace that is comfortable and appropriate to their needs.

  • Always be prepared for first aid.

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
