HND Fitness, Health & Exercise
“It’s a qualification that definitely leads directly to related employment which is what most people want out of their College experience.”
James’s graduated with an HND Health, Fitness & Exercise at the Aberdeen Graduation ceremony and is delighted that his new qualification has already led him directly into his dream job.
James (21) from Westhill has always had a strong desire to work in the fitness industry and so enrolled on a non-advanced Sport & Fitness course, successful completion of which allowed him entry to the HND.
James really enjoyed his time at College and said, “Like anything new, there is a period of settling in but I met lots of great people, making friends for life whilst gaining knowledge and learning new skills. “
One of James’s highlights from the HND was the unit on delivering and planning training sessions having always wanted to become a Personal Trainer. This, he said, gave him vital knowledge and skills which he is now using everyday within his job.
Now employed at Pure Gym in Aberdeen, James is working as a Personal Trainer, with the HND giving him access to the Register of Exercise Professionals at Level 3, a qualification most established gyms look for.
James said, “I would recommend the Health, Fitness & Exercise HND at NESCol to anyone looking to become a Personal Trainer or Fitness Instructor. It’s a qualification that definitely leads directly to related employment which is what most people want out of their College experience.”
