This is the second year of the Diploma qualifications.
You will be developing your knowledge and understanding of the health and fitness industry through vocational, project based learning in the community combined with theory and professional practice.
Once you have completed this diploma you can pathway into the AUT (Auckland University of Technology) Bachelor of Sport and Recreation that is available on the NMIT Nelson campus.
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.
Use the onsite gym to put what you learn into practice.
