The second year of the EIT (Hawkes Bay) Certificate in Health Promotion is underway. This entry level qualification is a part-time, two-semester programme (two mornings per week). There are two intakes per year (depending on numbers): semester one in February, and semester two in July.
This year (2011), both the Certificate and Diploma are being run concurrently. This means that students can choose to complete the diploma in one year should they wish to. The Certificate and Diploma together is a fulltime, two-semester course run over two days each week.
The programme equips people to work effectively in multi-disciplinary health promotion teams. Graduates of the programme can explore further study in programmes such as Certificate in Hauora, Certificate in Mental Health Support, Diploma in Recreation and Sport, Bachelor of Recreation and Sport or Bachelor of Nursing.
The EIT programme is open to all people who fulfil the entry criteria.
Fees subsidies are available for the EIT course. Contact Sue Jackson – Secretary, Certificate in Health Promotion, Faculty of Health and Sport Science, Phone: (06) 974 8000, ext 5421, Email: email@example.com.
