Course Overview

A true life-changer in every respect, this blended learning course builds on the knowledge gained via Level 3 Personal Trainer or Level 3 Pilates qualifications. This will enable learners to support clients who have been referred by a healthcare professional with common medical conditions covered in the qualification, such as obesity, asthma, and hypertension.

The course is aimed at health practitioners looking to work in a chronic disease remit, as well as fitness professionals who want to make a real difference to people’s lives through physical activity interventions alongside exercise referral.

Students will receive a pre-reading manual and will be given 8 weeks to study this before attending a 3-day practical workshop, followed by a 1-day practical assessment 4 weeks later.
