Why not increase the number of group exercise classes you offer with our exciting aqua aerobics instructor course?
Aquatic fitness is very different from land-based exercise and is an incredibly popular and in-demand mode of group exercise. If you want to learn how to teach aqua-based exercise then this aqua instructor course could be just what you are looking for.
Group exercise continues to grow in popularity and taking this activity away from the studio 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 how you can use this to your advantage to teach exciting, engaging and effective water-based classes.
The course is certified by YMCA Awards and is delivered with a mix of online and distance-learning, incorporating both theory and practical training and assessments to ensure that you have the essential knowledge and skills to succeed. This blended and self-paced structure ensures you’ll have plenty of time to master the technical aspects of teaching water-based exercise before you undertake your final assessments.
This qualification is very flexible and is especially popular with exercise to music teachers and personal trainers looking to expand on their repertoire and increase the number of classes, sessions or services that they can offer. It also makes for a great piece of continuing professional development (CPD) evidence for those looking to learn new skills.

This would incur an additional fee of £220.00. Experience of participating in water-based exercise sessions will also be essential. If you don't have this experience, we strongly advise that you start attending sessions as soon as you enrol and that you give yourself longer to complete the programme.
The course is designed to teach you everything you need to know to be an effective aqua instructor. The theory and practical elements are covered in an interactive and engaging way throughout the course and you will develop a wide range of knowledge and skills, including:
