YMCA Awards

Awarding organisation YMCA Awards has created a new suite of fitness qualifications mapped to the existing UK National Occupational Standards as well as the new professional standards created by CIMSPA, offering dual recognition by REPs.

The new qualifications are:

Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instructing

Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training Practitioner

Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training Practitioner

Following evaluation by independent quality assurer PD:Approval, REPs has confirmed that UK learners undertaking any of these qualifications will be able to join its register whilst existing level 2 members will be able to achieve REPs level 3 status. The mapping to National Occupational Standards also means that the qualifications will be recognised globally in all ICREPs member countries.
