In today’s active society, there is a greater demand for sports training professionals to assist people in reaching and maintaining their fitness goals, as well as managing the injuries that may arise as a result.

Helping to meet the demands of these fitness-focused lifestyles, Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board’s College of FET offers multiple sports programmes including: Strength and Conditioning, Sports Injury Management, and Sports, Recreation and Exercise.

Aimee, a Sports Injury Management learner at Kilmallock Road Campus, spoke recently about her experience of undertaking the programme, which provides certified, practical, hands-on experience in sports massage therapy.

“I’ve already completed a Bachelor’s and a Master’s, however, this programme has given me more practical, hands-on, certified experience before entering the workforce. It’s great because you get to learn about physiology, anatomy, and sports massage techniques.”

Personal and professional development are key elements to the College of FET experience, and Aimee also explained how studying Sports Injury Management has equipped her with the skills for pursuing a career in both injury management and training.

“I’ve learned how to develop my own resistance and flexibility circuits, and how to teach them. There are so many different elements to learn about. So, if you have an interest in becoming a personal trainer, this course is really helpful.”
