The Active IQ Award in Instructing Circuit Sessions is at level 2 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. It is also recognised by The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) at level 2, but does not provide access onto the Register. Entry onto the Register is gained via a recognised level 2 fitness qualification.

Entry to this course requires a suitable Level 2 Fitness Instructing qualification e.g. Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (Gym/Exercise To Music). Some experience of circuit training is useful. The course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential; therefore, a degree of physical fitness is necessary.

There is also an element of communication (discussing, presenting, reading and writing) involved and learners should have basic skills in communication pitched at level 2.

Assessed evidence to complete the qualification includes:

  • Written Worksheet
  • Written Session Plan – Introduction – Circuit Cards – Circuit Layout
  • Observed Practical Instructed Session
  • Written Session Self-Evaluation

This qualification provides progression to Level 3 qualifications in Personal Training and can also provide progression to other related sectors e.g. Sports Massage. Both progression pathways are available to study at Bradford College.
