What you'll learn

Learning & Assessment

While much of this course will be taught through our award-winning and flexible e-learning platforms, you will still benefit from the practical experience taught in our in-person workshop and assessment sessions.

Our expert Sports Massage tutors lead 4 days of practical face to face learning which gives our learners the ability to learn through doing rather than from a textbook. We believe that this approach to learning sets our training above the rest and will give out graduates the much-needed confidence to form a successful career in this industry.

As well as workshops manuals, there is a high volume of resources available for learners across our e-learning, student zone and social media platforms.

I study with Future Fit because of their long-standing reputation within the health & fitness sector. Widely trusted by professional coaches it was the only provider I would know could lead me to where I wanted to go & support me ongoing in my career.
