What equipment will I need to study online?

You should find it very straightforward to study your e-learning. All you need is a PC, laptop or Mac, a reliable internet connection, headphones or speakers (some courses contain video), and a printer for printing resources (optional).

In order to get the best results from your e-learning, we recommend that you use a device that is less than four years old with a recent version of Windows or MacOS. We also suggest that you use Google Chrome as your default browser.

Our courses will run on smartphones and tablets. However, we strongly recommend that you use a computer or laptop as your main device for studying. Apart from the small screen on a smartphone, writing notes and case studies on a virtual keyboard can be frustrating. Also, streaming e-learning can be a drain on your battery and won’t provide an ideal viewing or learning experience.

In summary, a computer or laptop in a quiet room will enable you to get the best results from your studying.

How old do I have to be to take a course with you?

Anyone from the age of 16 can enrol and complete any of our non-practical e-learning courses. Practical courses can only be attended on or after your 18th birthday but can be enrolled on and booked in advance of this.

Many gyms will accept applicants of 16 years of age, but be aware that if you are planning to work outside of clubs or leisure centres as a Personal Trainer, an Exercise to Music Instructor or a Pilates Teacher, you may not be eligible for the required insurance until you are 18 years old or over.

For more information on course entry requirements and admissions please contact one of our Careers Advisers who will be happy to answer any of your questions.

What kind of equipment do I need for the online part of my course?

All of our courses will run on Windows-based PCs, Apple macs and iPads. We test our courses in a range of browsers but for best results we recommend that you use the latest version of Google Chrome.
