How Is the MAX Programme Delivered?
The Fitness and Business components of the programme while separate are blended in such a way as to help you to understand how you will apply what you are learning in your chosen career pathway as you proceed through the programme.
Each session includes a combination of Video, Audio, PowerPoints, Session Notes and other learning materials to assist you to work progressively through all of the Units building upon your learning as you progress.
