Learn to Manage Gyms, Leisure Centres and other Recreation Facilities

The leisure industry provides both physical facilities, and experiential activities to the public. The services may  or may not use the facilities offered, and the facilities may or may not also supply activities.

Some leisure industry professionals are more involved with the management of facilities, and others both facilities and activities.

This course helps you to understand the scope and nature of managing every aspect of a leisure facility, to minimize risk to patrons and risk to the business operation of the enterprise. You will expand your capacity to see the possibilities for improving and using the facility and what it offers to it's clientele; and much more.

Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.

Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a habit of working to specification with vegetable growing, will impress others, and will be more efficient when self employed.

A Final Exam is offered upon satisfactory completion of all assignments. This is optional. If you choose to apply for and do this exam, you will have the possibility of obtaining a "formal credit" or "Pass Certification" for this course. A fee applies.
