Graduate of the Month
Scott Hayden - November 2018
Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy
I am 40 years old and have been an electrician for the past 20 years, now managing a branch of the largest new build electrical contractor in the country. I took up running with my local club Lliswerry Runners, completing distances ranging from 5K to Ultra Marathons. With that came plenty of treatment on the physio table and where my initial interest in sports massage came from; always asking questions and intrigued to know 'why this' and 'why that'.
How have you used your new qualification?
I have used my level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy to set up my own business, SWH Sports Massage Therapy, in Newport and have converted part of my garage into a treatment room whilst offering a mobile service to those that require it.
What did you think of the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?
The training I received from the Sports Massage Academy was second to none and an added plus it didn't end there. They are always on hand for support through the alumni program, their graduate support network, which has been invaluable.
In a world where a lot of courses can be done online, I'm really glad I went with my gut and attended a classroom based course; the excellent tuition and feedback from our tutor Luke gave me the confidence to set up my business straight away.
