Active IQ LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE IN GYM INSTRUCTING

This course is the starting point for those looking to start a career as a fitness/gym instructor to work in a gym environment carrying out inductions, developing programmes and training clients in a gym environment. It is also the pre-requisite for those looking to move on to do the personal training course or other specialised training. It is taught through blended learning which is a mixture of home study/e-learning for the theory aspect and face to face training covering the practical elements of the course.

Once booked on to the course you will be sent out a welcome pack including your course manual and set up for your e-learning to support you through your study.

You will then attend your 3 online training days and 3 practical training days with your allocated tutor covering the practical elements of the course. You can choose from any of the online dates listed as long as you complete the online days in advance of the practical days.

The online and practical days are followed by one assessment day for your theory and practical assessments. Some candidates prefer to complete their theory assessments earlier which is an option available.
