Deciding on which fitness college to attend is a life-changing decision. It could make or break your career in health, fitness and sports management. Some institutions will give you a head start that you can truly benefit from. There are those that simply cannot provide you with the support and expertise that you need. They cannot give you the assurance that you will get the most you can out of your fitness instructor training.
So, you need to make the right decision before embarking on any fitness training course. Here are a few qualities that you should look out for in your prospective fitness college.
Fitness College Qualities and Attributes
Fitness Community Must Know All About the Fitness College
Any fitness college that is worth its salt has likely been around for a while. They would have done so by moving from strength to strength.
An institution that enjoys a successful reputation will have the resources necessary to prepare you for a career in fitness thanks to state-of-the-art instruction methods, continuous research as well as relationships with various working fitness coaches and institutions. So, if neither you nor anyone else has heard of the academy, there is likely a good reason.
The Fitness College Must Be Locally and Internationally Accredited
One of the most important questions you should ask your prospective fitness college is about what type of accreditation they will award you at the end of the course. To this end, you want to make sure that you are studying with a college that can offer you both local and international accreditation which will give you room to begin your career as a fitness instructor – from anywhere in the world.
Trifocus Fitness Academy is one such fitness college. We hold both local and international accreditations:
- We are local accredited through the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as well as the Culture, Art, Tourism, Hospitality, and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).
- All our students have access to international job opportunities through the Register of Exercise Professionals South Africa (REPPSA). The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) in the United States has also bestowed one of their very prestigious accreditations on us. (Learn more about us here.)
The College Needs to Provide Student Support
Studying is difficult. This is especially true when you have to handle administration on top of all of your workload. Because of this, it is essential for any educational or training institution to provide each of their students with comprehensive student support services. If the college you are looking at doesn’t provide support, they are likely not your best bet.
It Should Be Easy To Pay The Fitness College
Payment is always a factor to consider when deciding who to enrol with. Price is but a tip of the iceberg. Look for a college that offers easy-to-understand, simple, flexible and convenient payment options. This is to ensure that your studies will never be interrupted by issues with your accounts. Flexibility also allows you to complete your course and begin your adventure as a fitness instructor at a budget and scheme that works for you.
