Are you interested and passionate about health, fitness, sport, recreation and exercise?

There are a range of opportunities available to help you into employment and future study in this growing and key industry sector.

This level 5 programmes is the first year of the diploma qualifications. You will focus on fitness techniques, health, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, training, coaching and motivating people with the sector.

This programme replaces the Diploma in Applied Fitness. If you have partially completed the Diploma in Applied Fitness you will be able to transition onto this new qualification. Talk to us about how that can work for you.

COVID-19 vaccine

The Government COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021(external link) has been extended to include high-risk workers in the hospitality and service industries such as hair, beauty and fitness sector.

This has implications for our learners and staff who have close contact, customer facing, roles in the teaching and learning environment, and learner work placements.

The effect of this is that vaccination will soon be mandatory.

With the introduction of the Order, NMIT cannot secure placements for learners who are not vaccinated. If your vaccination status cannot be confirmed it is likely you will not be able to complete your qualification.
