Online Learning with Practical Workshops
We offer a range of Strength & Conditioning courses utilising a ‘Blended Learning’ education process. Interactive lectures are delivered online each week, which you study in your own time, and practical workshops then take place in The SportsLab, Thurles. These take place every 4-5 weeks on our Undergrad programmes and two one-week workshop blocks for our Performance Science class.
