New fitness qualifications launched

NCFE has redeveloped its Level 2 Gym Instructing and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications to meet the UK’s fitness industry standards. The qualifications have now been approved by PD:Approval, the independent quality assurance organisation providing endorsement services for the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).

These qualifications will allow more of NCFE’s learners to access the UK’s largest register of fitness professionals and gain international recognition through the International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPs).

Launching these new and updated qualifications means that our learners can have confidence that they meet the highest standards in the UK and across the globe. NCFE has also released new qualifications that can be added by members as continuing professional development (CPD) to award REPs points and increase their insurance cover.
