intro

Enable yourself to effectively work with disabled clients with the Level 3 Award in Programming and Supervising Exercise for Disabled Clients. This is an essential qualification for those fitness professionals looking to better serve this seriously underrepresented special population.

Recent reports have revealed that 1 in 5 people in the UK has a disability, which equates to around 19% of the total population. It’s also estimated that only 18% of disabled adults undertake physical activity for more than 30 minutes a week, compared to 38% of non-disabled adults. Clearly more can be done to encourage disabled people to exercise and fitness professionals can begin by gaining the necessary skills and knowledge to do so.

With our qualification, you will able to affect real change and provide a valuable service to those that need it. The qualification also provides a great progression route for current Level 2 fitness instructors and a valuable CPD opportunity for personal trainers and those currently working with other special populations.

Despite the specialised nature of the course, you’re still guaranteed to receive world-class training and unlimited support throughout your studies. This begins the moment you enrol and carries right through until you’re fully qualified.

course content

This Level 3 Award is more than just a qualification, it’s a career enhancer. It will allow you to work a wider client base, while making you considerably more adaptable, marketable and versatile.

How to identify and follow current legislation, including the Disability Discrimination Act and the Equality Act. You will also explore the legal obligations placed on health and fitness facilities to provide easy access for disabled people.

The importance of identifying and understanding a range of disabilities and impairments. These include: spinal injuries, hearing and visual impairments, learning difficulties, cerebal palsy, and amputation.

    This is the second time I have studied

    This is the second time I have studied with HFE and I would do so again without hesitation. My support tutor Martyn was helpful, patient and supportive with clear concise knowledge and advice, I felt completely at ease and comfortable to be able to ask anything. Our weekly scheduled catch up's were fundamental to my success at achieving the qualification.
