Professional Qualification: YMCA Children’s Fitness Instructor Certificate

The YMCA Children’s Fitness Instructor Certificate Level 2 is available to those who wish to run health related exercise sessions for children and those who are already running such sessions without a formal qualification.

You will learn through both theory and practical sessions taught by a team of highly qualified, professional and experienced teachers, trainers and assessors. Upon completion, you will be qualified to work as a health related exercise instructor for children aged 5-15 years in the community, schools or leisure centres.

To qualify for this qualification, it is required that you pass the Fitness Theory Level 2 Mandatory Units.

If you are aged 19 and over you may have options to help fund your studies with us. The funding you can receive depends on your personal circumstances, and could mean you are entitled to free or reduced course fees. You may also be entitled to support with travel, childcare and equipment. To find out exactly what you could receive, contact our Helpzone team on 08000 380 123 for a free, impartial appointment, with no commitment necessary.
