Course Details

This is a two year full time undergraduate course offering the opportunity to gain a university accredited professional qualification as a specialist fitness professional. The course is aimed at people who wish to work as fitness coaches, personal trainers, gym-instructors and studio teachers in all aspects of the leisure industry. The course is open to anybody with an enthusiasm and interest in health, fitness and physical activity and a desire to promote and teach this to others.

The Higher Certificate in Exercise and Health Fitness (HCEHF) is the only university accredited specialist fitness qualification in Ireland. The HCEHFis accredited and awarded by the University of Limerick and all students on the Dublin course are registered UL students. There are other courses that take place in University facilities but they are not accredited by that University.

The course offers advanced modules in year 2 thus allowing students to develop specialist areas of expertise. The fitness and leisure business is vibrant and there are many opportunities for well qualified fitness professionals. Graduates with the Higher Certificate in Exercise and Health Fitness are very much in demand as the fitness industry continues to grow.

 

The HCEHF is a Level 6 major qualification on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). This Framework provides a way to compare qualifications and to ensure that they are quality assured and recognised at home and abroad. It is also on the European Qualifications Framework and it is an EQF Level 5.

In addition to the educational recognition, this qualification is also recognised as the highest Industry standard award by Europe Active. Europe Active represents the European Health and Fitness sector in Brussels. Europe Active is also a standards setting body for the health and fitness industry and promotes best practice in instruction and training.

The HCEHF is aligned on the Europe Active Sectoral Qualification Framework (SQF) at Level 5.
