Courses and COVID-19 Update - Interim Solutions

Due to Government advice in regards to reducing the transmission of COVID-19 we are restructuring our Level 1 Sports Trainers Courses in the short term. The course structure will now involve:

  • An online course including assessment component to be completed first
  • A live webcast of theory presentations from the Face to Face day
  • A shortened face to face component to complete practical assessments (this practical component will be held at the location below. Exact date TBC)

The dates below for the courses are the date that the live webcast for that group will be held. Face to face components will be scheduled based on Government recommendations and advice. This session will be held in the original course locations.
