While there are no specific entry requirements, an element of communication (discussion, presenting, reading and writing) is involved, and those entering the programme should possess the basic communication skills pitched at Level 2. The course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential - therefore, a degree of physical fitness is necessary.
Successful achievement of this qualification will provide entry to the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) as a practitioner (exercise and fitness). Launched in 2011, CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK's sport and physical activity sector.
