Throughout their time at FitPro, learners are provided with real-life tasks and vocational skill learning.
Learners are also taken on various planned outings to see the fitness industry from different locations and business models.
We offer learners free access to the Technogym Wellness App while they are studying – allowing them to build an entire online library available for immediate use once they are qualified.
We don’t just tick boxes, our manual is more comprehensive than what legislation requires offering learners a broad spectrum of learning and experience before entering the workplace.
