CYQ Award in Business Skills for the Fitness Professional

The aim of this qualification is to equip learners with the skills, knowledge and competence required to market, plan and deliver a successful training service. Learners will apply the knowledge and skills they have learned to prepare a financially sound business strategy. This qualification is particularly relevant for learners wishing to work on a freelance basis.

Learners are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning and fully participate throughout all aspects of the course. A course timetable will be posted to you once your enrolment has been completed, before the start of the course.

A pre-requisite for all of the above courses is that you have experience participating within the gym and/or studio environment.

Learners are required to bring pens and paper for all theory sessions, along with appropriate exercise clothing and footwear for practical sessions. It is also suggested that all students have a change of clothing for their own comfort and hygiene.
The course is a two day course, which requires understanding of theory knowledge and practical application. There will be some study to do at home, but you will be provided with study materials to work from.
