4 simple steps to use ELCAS funding to become a fitness professional

Already left the Armed Forces? Want to become a fitness professional?

The process is not so different, you’ll just need a couple more pieces of documentation when submitting your ELC application.

  1. Evidence of your leave date (A P45, discharge document or a stamped document with your confirmed exit date)
  2. Proof of your current address (A utility bill is fine)

As long as you submit your claim with ELCAS within 5 years of having left the services, you can still use your ELC payment for training and education. You are only able to make one ELC claim per year but if you have served between 6-8 years, you can aggregate all three of your claims together into one total claim.
