*During the course, you will need to complete a client consultation and collect relevant data about your client (e.g. fitness assessments) using the ‘Client Consultation Template’ provided. The assessment must be submitted via recorded video. The assessment must be marked and passed before you attend day 5 of your workshop to deliver the summative practical assessment.

The submission of any work is not final and can be amended once marked by one of the CMS team and feedback given. However, we insist that all work submitted is fully completed to a high level prior to submission.

  • Online on a date/time of your choosing via remote proctor software (please note there is an additional fee for a remote exam)

Planned theory exam assessment dates can be found here.

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.

The Modular and Summative Assessment

A modular summative observation is a flexible assessment format which allows the completion of an assessment on one or more occasions. For example, the consultation assessment may involve your assessor observing the whole consultation with your client in one session, or they may observe each section at different times.

A summative observation is where the assessment takes place on one occasion. For example, the personal training session will be observed and assessed in one session.

The Modular summative assessment covers three units:

  • Professionalism and customer care for fitness instructors Unit Accreditation Number: K/616/7501
  • Conducting client consultations to support positive behaviour change Unit Accreditation Number: A/616/7504
  • Planning and instructing gym-based exercise Unit Accreditation Number: F/616/7505

And involves completing a:

  • Client consultation
  • Planning a session / programme card
  • Practical assessment under assessor observation
  • Session self-evaluation

The client consultation is assessed by a CMS tutor via a video recorded submission.

In addition to the consultation, your consultation paperwork and your programme planning paperwork must be submitted and marked as passed by a CMS assessor prior to your final assessment day or you will not be allowed to progress onto your practical assessment. The documents and guidance for all of these assessments are available on your Virtual Learning Environment.

Your practical summative assessment covers:

  • Planning and instructing gym-based exercise Unit Accreditation Number: F/616/7505

And involves you:

  • Delivering your session / programme card under assessor observation. Please note students are required to bring their own participant to deliver on.

You will have the opportunity to practice your final delivery the day before and all components of the assessment will be explained by your workshop tutor.
