Aquatic fitness is very different from exercising on land and having the skills to teach classes in a pool can make you an in-demand instructor. Group exercise continues to grow in popularity and taking this activity away from the gym floor provides an exciting change of pace for those you teach. Our Level 2 Aqua Instructor course teaches you everything you need to know about planning and teaching effective exercise in water. You’ll also discover how water affects the body, and various techniques for teaching cardiovascular and muscular strength exercises.
The course is certified by YMCA Awards (formerly CYQ) and we deliver it with a mix of distance learning and practical sessions. This ensures you’ll have plenty of time to master the technical aspects of the course before you undertake your final assessment and teach a planned exercise session.
This qualification is very flexible in its use and provides the opportunity for fitness instructors, exercise to music teachers, and personal trainers to expand on their repertoire. It can also be used as evidence of continuing professional development (CPD). If you’d like to know more about how this qualification can be used to further your development as an exercise professional, our dedicated careers team will be able to give you all the advice you need.
The course is designed to teach you everything you need to know to be an aqua instructor. Theory and practical elements are covered in an interactive and engaging way and on the course you can expect to learn:
Throughout you’ll be tested in a range of practical and theoretical ways. They include:
There are no formal prerequisites for this course, but we do recommend that you already hold a Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification. Experience of participating in water-based exercise sessions will also be incredibly useful.
If you don’t already have a fitness instructor qualification, you will need to complete the anatomy and physiology, and the principles of exercise and fitness modules, in addition to the above assessments. This incurs a cost of £100.
This Level 2 qualification is worth 20 points with the Register of Exercise Professionals. It will also allow you to join the register as an aqua instructor.
