CYQ Award in Instructing Outdoor Fitness

This qualification provides learners with the knowledge and skills required to design and deliver safe and effective fitness training sessions to groups of participants in outdoor environments.

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 one day course, which requires understanding of health and safety knowledge when training outdoors and lots of practical application.

Everest Fitness Education will ensure there is an expert tutor available (times to be agreed) on a weekly basis and you will be assigned a study coach to guide and assist you through the qualification.
