You should always ensure that any course or qualification you select is certificated by an awarding body like Central YMCA Qualifications (CYQ), Active IQ, and City & Guilds. While endorsement by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) will enable you to join the Register, this does not mean that the programme is actually a qualification. In a nutshell, REPs endorse all awarding body qualifications, but not all REPs endorsed programmes are qualifications. A qualification is not just important for obtaining employment, it is also essential to ensure that any liability or indemnity insurance held by the fitness instructor or personal trainer is valid.
Approved training centres are subject to rigorous inspection from awarding bodies to ensure high standards are delivered. All of our qualifications are certificated through CYQ and Active IQ, this gives you the best opportunity of gaining employment upon completion of your studies. Furthermore all of our qualifications are recognised by REPS so you will be eligible to join the Register when you complete your course.
