CIMSPA has been tasked by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), backed by Sport England and employers, with leading the sport and physical activity sectors workforce development programme. This will be achieved by creating a clear and rigorous set of employer-led standards for all sport and exercise professionals, with a similar clear and rigorous system for assessment, awarding and validating qualifications.

Is there a deadline to complete my training?

Each individual module within your training programme has a specific deadline or time-frame of completion that must be achieved in order to pass. The aim of the deadlines are to encourage you to succeed and ensure that you become qualified. The overall deadline to complete all your courses is 3 years from when you purchased.

How long will the course take? How many hours should I study for per week?

We would ask how much time can you dedicate to your study? The more time available, the quicker you can complete your course/diploma. If you don’t have lots of time, we advise taking it step-by-step.

"Excellent customer service from Scott Bolwell"

I recently enrolled onto the Pilates teacher training course with Future Fit. The career advisor I spoke with throughout the process was Scott Bolwell. I really must say I was so impressed with the level of customer service I received from Scott right from the very beginning. When I first called through on the phone I had a lot of questions and Scott was very patient and thorough.
