Course details

This course is a blend of online and classroom study, designed to fit around your lifestyle and commitments. The course is design in 4 phases which are outlined below.


You'll start your learning with us instantly with our phase 1 learning programme. We will send this through as soon as you register and you'll soon find yourself immersed in all things strength, power, movement, and coaching. You'll finish this phase inspired and ready for phase 2!


Get ready for one of the most impactful and inspiring experiences of your life with our practical coaching immersion clinic. We call it an immersion clinic for a reason...we teach you in all aspects of advanced Strength and Conditioning. We cover everything from Olympic weightlifting, speed and plyometric training, mobility and stability training, power, periodisation and much more.

Many of our students report that this immersion experience is truly transformational and leaves them thinking totally differently.... as a coach rather than a trainer. At the end of these empowering days you'll be truly inspired, ready to get coaching and delivering the new content you've learnt, and with a number of new colleagues to bounce ideas off. You'll also be ready for a couple of days recovery too!


This is where things really start to come together for you. Firstly, we give you everything you need to practise and improve your own competence on the Olympic lifts, speed and agility and your coaching in general. You'll have a programme to follow meaning you cannot go wrong at any point.


The final step for you to become a Certified SCE Level 4 coach is to take your final practical Olympic weightlifting, speed and movement assessment.

Then it's on to truly realising your goals. Whether it's getting better results for your clients, building your client base, working with athletes or opening that gym you've always wanted, the choice is yours and you'll be prepared for it.
