How Do I Start?
When you enrol on the Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (Gym) you will receive your joining instructions via email giving you access to your learning resources.
The resources are divided into unit order providing you with the relevant manuals, worksheets, case study documents, mock exams and knowledge checkers required to help you complete your learning and prepare for your workshop/assessment days.
It is recommended that you complete and email your knowledge based worksheets to us before you attend the workshop.
The submission of any work is not final and can be amended once marked by one of the CMS team and feedback was given. However, we insist that all work submitted is fully completed to a high level prior to submission.
As part of your qualification, you will need to pass two theoretical paper-based multiple-choice exams.
The exams are sat on day 4 of the 5-day workshop (day 1 if you are attending the 2-day option). If you refer an exam you can book to re-sit the exam on one of our planned re-sit days. You can re-sit an exam as many times as needed, however CMS Fitness Courses has a responsibility to ensure that teaching and learning occur in between each exam to promote learner development and quality of delivery.
Can you please attend wearing appropriate leisure clothing as the workshops will include physical activity and we cannot guarantee access to changing rooms and showers. In addition, you are expected to provide your own refreshments. For the respect of other users of our venues, please bring a gym towel.
Throughout the workshop days, our experienced tutors will support you to ensure your full participation and give guidance on what work needs to be completed and by when, to ensure that you can successfully complete the workshop.
