Intro

Experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO) predict that by 2030, almost 75% of men and 63% of women in the UK will be classed as obese. Numerous conditions associated with obesity are also set to become more prevalent including diabetes, lower back pain, osteoporosis, and arthritis.

With the NHS being stretched like never before, and the cost of treating these diseases well into billions of pounds, now more than ever specialised exercise professionals are needed to play a key part in fighting this epidemic.

The Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes Certificate is designed to allow you to work closely with clinicians and others within the medical community. You’ll gain the highly sought-after skills to devise and deliver exercise programmes for those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or obesity. The course is also perfectly suited for fitness instructors and personal trainers looking to expand their client base.

The course is delivered via blended learning which combines online work with extensive telephone support from a dedicated Learning Support Tutor.

    I would definitely recommend HFE. I recently completed the L3 PT course and thoroughly enjoyed practical weekends.

    My experience have been amazing with them, all the teachers and tutors where really nice and always ready to help with everything. What I liked most was the practical assesments where you challenge yourself through 'real' practice which you learn a lot. The books are easy to read and also they just don't give you the certificate you have to work for it.

    HFE for my Exercise to Music Level 2 course proved to be an excellent choice! Very good material for studying, including the two student manuals which were greatly accompanied by the audio books and the e-learning part (really nice videos and tests).
