South Africa's SAFEI launches

The South African Fitness Education Institute (SAFEI) was officially launched last month.

The organisation aims to provide the most up-to-date and advanced fitness education to students and cater for everyone from beginners to qualified fitness professionals.

SAFEI will bring together a variety of qualifications under a single banner, with courses that mirror the global trends in fitness and wellness. All qualifications are accredited with SAQA - The South African Qualifications Authority.

Spearheading the initial phase of the roll-out are three courses: Performance Boxing and Extreme Kettlebells from the UK-based Optimal Life Fitness Group, and Spinning from Mad Dogg Athletics. Courses due to be added include Stott Pilates, ViPR, HumanSport, bodycore Vibration Training and SAPD (South African Pole Dancing).

These will be offered in the form of Skills programmes that will carry credits toward a qualification such as a National Diploma or Certificate.
