"HFE were understanding and the course is really flexible. I knew this would be the perfect thing for me."
I decided to take voluntary redundancy and try something totally different at 57! The HFE course of distance learning suited my needs and pace as I had not done any previous fitness training before.
I found out about HFE from the colleague and didn't hesitate as it was the cheapest course I've found. Following recommendations I haven't been disappointed. We had a fantastic tutor and the whole communication was very easy.
I have completed a whole range of courses with HFE and their professionalism in delivery and support has been outstanding. They set and maintain the standards I would expect for the fitness industry and there are no 'easy passes'.
The course was brilliantly done over a two day weekend... The tutor was very knowledgeable on the subject and gave lots of support to myself and the students. The exams were multiple choice and the tutor helped us the day before with a review of what we should have learnt for the exam.
