Aimed at school-leavers and for those who do not have daytime commitments, our full-time certification courses commence in mid-February each year and are offered over an academic year/s. Structured Lectures with Practical workshops are offered during weekday mornings (from Monday to Thursday) from HFPA Campuses which are located nationally. Our full-time programmes include extra specialization courses which will multi-skill you as a fitness professional and broaden you scope of expertise and therefore earning potential. On successful completion, our graduates enter the workplace with the confidence to launch their career as a Fitness Professional.

Note: All students have access to the HFPA Online Learning Platform (OLP) and its full set of course resources and study aids.

Online: Study from anywhere in the world. Online courses are completed entirely online, delivered from our comprehensive and user-friendly HFPA Online Learning Platform. Students access downloadable course material on the Learning Platform as well as various other study aids. Assessments are uploaded by the student and assessed by your Online Tutor. Our team of Online Tutors are assigned to students relative to the particular module that you have reached - You therefore work at a pace that suits you and you will always have support from an online-tutor.

Correspondence: Our Correspondence mode of study is offered as Online/Home-study with the inclusion of structured Practical Workshops which are offered throughout the year from our Campusesand Support Centres which are located nationally & in other countries where we have appointed Licensees and Master Trainers. Students receive hard-copy course manuals, so if you do not have internet access, you are able to study on a distance basis with support and workshops offered from HFPA Campuses and Support Centres. Students are also allocated to an Online Tutor relative to the modules that you have reached. We offer 4 workshop cycles per year, so students study at their own pace and attend the workshops relative to the course modules that have been reached. All students have access to the full set of resources on the HFPA Online Learning Platform.
