Advent Calendar Day 16

CIMSPA-endorsed Levels 2 & 3 Sports Qualifications


For Advent Calendar Day 16, we are continuing our focus on the Sports, Active Health and Fitness sector. We are looking at the six VTCT qualifications across group exercise instruction and personal training, which are endorsed by CIMSPA (The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity).

The qualifications meet all CIMSPA requirements and have been developed to meet relevant stakeholder engagement requirements, including employers and subject matter experts.

The qualifications are set against new CIMSPA professional standards for the industry and were designed to meet skills gaps that employers and service users were highlighting.

The qualifications aim to provide realistic expectations of the job roles and clearer career pathways for learners. They also provide qualified learners with chartered membership to CIMSPA. Find out more by clicking on the information sheet to the left.

The six qualifications, endorsed by CIMSPA are:

VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Instructing Gym-based Exercise

VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Instructing Group Exercise to Music

VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Instructing Group Circuit Training

VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Instructing Group Water-based Exercise

VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training

VTCT Level 3 Combined Diploma in Personal Training

This suite of qualifications is awarded through VTCT, you can learn more about the qualifications and find approved centres by visiting the ‘Find a Qualification’ section here. If you are an iTEC training provider and are interested in delivering these qualifications, it couldn’t be easier to be able to do so.
