The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is a system for recognising skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for qualifications and units (small steps of learning). Each unit has a credit value (as detailed above). This value specifies the number of credits gained by learners who complete that unit. The flexibility of the system allows learners to gain qualifications at their own pace along routes that suit them best.
This Active IQ Level 3 Award in Conversion of Advanced Fitness Instructor to Personal Trainer Status (QCF) course is great for people who have already qualified as a level 3 advanced gym instructor and wish to upskill to full level 3 personal trainer status.
During this course you will learn how to test your client's fitness levels and how to monitor their progress, in addition to learning how to give advice on healthy eating and diets.
This qualification has been designed to upskill individuals that currently hold the Level 3 Advanced Instructor qualification or advanced instructor status on REPs to full personal trainer.
You can work at your own pace, in your own time and from where you like. You will then need to attend one assessment / training day.
