The Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (QCF) will equip learners to prepare for employment in a specific occupational area. The aim is to train learners to a professionally competent level, enabling them to prescribe, plan and deliver safe and effective exercise programmes within a gym or health club environment as a Level 2 Fitness Instructor.
Costs shown are per course
The cost for a co-funded AEB learner is £362. Terms and conditions apply for this reduced fee.
Some experience of gym-based exercises, including free weights, is highly recommended. The course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential; therefore, a degree of physical fitness is necessary.
There is also an element of communication (discussing, presenting, reading and writing) involved and therefore learners should have basic skills in communication pitched at Level 2.
There will be numerous methods of teaching and learning to ensure the course is diverse in meeting the needs of all types of learners; ranging from seminar work, individual and group activities, interactive activities, presentations with a lot of gym based study to cement the necessary skills.
You will be internally assessed via:
- Multiple choice examination
- Portfolio of evidence
- Practical demonstration / assignment
You will not require any specialist equipment, however you will be expected to have suitable gym attire to train in. Shower facilities are available following practical based sessions. You will need note pads and pens for note taking, and it would be advisable to have a memory stick, although most work can be accessed online.
This qualification enables you to progress straight into employment within the fitness industry as a gym/fitness instructor or:
- progress onto the Level 3 Personal Training programme
- look at other qualifications which will compliment this Level 2 qualification.
