Case Study: My journey with ICONI have played football all my life to a high standard and have loved all forms of sport, competing in athletics competitions, triathlons, cycling, swimming, golf, running, rugby and recently weightlifting. Through college I completed the Level 2 Fitness Instructor course, which I completed purely out of interest at the time.
I reached a stage in my second year of college where I wanted to start working and earning some money and like many people my age I didn’t really know where to begin. After speaking to a few family friends they suggested I complete a Lifeguard qualification, so I looked into it and went ahead and completed it in April 2015. I began working at my local leisure centre on a casual basis as a Recreation Assistant in May 2015, going full time in August of the same year
I started as a full-time Lifeguard, as a an 18 year old who had just finished college, and in 2 years I have developed into a young man full of knowledge, management experience and self-confidence with the desire to continue progressing and continue making a difference.
I want this to be a case study to show that if you have ambitions of progressing and you are willing to work then the sky really is the limit! Make the most of the opportunities you are given and the support from those around you. Without ICON Training I wouldn’t be where I am today.
