YMCA has become the first awarding org to achieve endorsement from the (CIMSPA).
This comes after the Chartered Institute of the Management of Sport and Physical Activity embraced the organisation’s new professional standards in three new gym instructor and personal training qualifications.
What does CIMSPA endorsement mean for the fitness education industry?
Increasingly fitness employers are keen to see that graduates have received training which is recognised by an industry body or organisation – such as CIMSPA. Therefore, having our qualifications endorsed by CIMSPA will ensure graduates from our award programmes will continue to achieve the highest levels and employability and success in their chosen professions within the fitness industry. The adaptation will allow students to develop greater practical experience with a wider range of clients which will ultimately help to make them an even more attractive proposition to prospective employers.
What does this mean for the previous qualifications?
Our current qualifications are still as popular and successful as they have ever been. They will continue to be held in the very highest regard by employers and we expect YMCA Awards certified learners to continue to reach the pinnacle of their chosen profession. The expectation is that training providers will deliver the most up to date industry qualifications at their earliest convenience which is why the decision was made to amend the current qualifications so we can help them do just that.
LA Training is excited by the opportunity to provide learners with the skills they need to thrive in a competitive industry and we are confident these new qualifications prove that we remain the hallmark of quality in health and fitness education.
