Setanta College is pleased to announce an exciting new option for those who wish to gain an ITEC Gym Instruction Qualification (Level 2) and would also like to train athletes, players and teams in the area of Strength and Conditioning.
Normally you would need to study for 9 months at a cost of over €1,700 to gain a Gym Instruction certificate and then study for a further 18 months at a cost of €3,200 to become a recognised Strength and Conditioning coach. Now you can combine both awards (the Physical Fitness and Conditioning Certificate (PFCS) (QQI Level 6) and ITEC Gym Instruction Qualification Level 2) at the same time. Both of these can now be completed in an 18 month period.
We are offering the ITEC Gym Instruction Certificate for €400 when completed in conjunction with the Physical Fitness and Conditioning for Sport (PFCS).
