Active IQ Launches New Personal Training and Fitness Instructor Programmes of Study for International Markets

Move Fitness in Egypt and AfroFit in Kenya will be first approved international centres

Active IQ has expanded its international offering with the introduction of the Active IQ Personal Training and Fitness Instructor international Programmes of Study. Following the successful launch of the Fitness Assistant Programme of Study in 2022, Active IQ is extending its portfolio of international offerings to even more learners around the world.

Following a thorough onboarding, Move Fitness in Egypt, and AfroFit in Kenya, will be the first approved international centres to offer the Active IQ international programmes.

“Neither Move Fitness nor AfroFit have worked with UK standards of education before, so we’ve worked closely with both operators to set them up for success,” said Gavin Baxter, Head of Business Development at Active IQ. “Both operators plan to use the new international programmes to upskill and develop their staff as well as offer education commercially as another revenue source for their business. Our goal is to extend our expertise in the UK fitness sector to the international fitness industry and we’re thrilled to have the teams at Move Fitness and AfroFit as our first partners on this mission.”

Recognising that different countries have different health and safety requirements and assessment needs, the content and delivery methods are tailored to ensure the programme is fit for purpose in each region. Both the Active IQ Fitness Instructor and Personal Training programmes support the essential skills and knowledge required to work as a fitness instructor or personal trainer in the Health and Fitness Industry at UK Level 2 and 3 (EQF Level 3 and 4), respectively.

“The format of the course is flexible to accommodate various international teaching requirements and adapt to each country’s needs rather than asking all centres to align to the same strict guidelines,” Gavin continued.

The content can be delivered online, combined with classroom support. The assessments are completed online with practical skills demonstrated through filmed materials and other interactive assessments. Each training centre will develop its own delivery model to ensure a tailored approach can be followed, all the while supported by the eManual developed by Active IQ.

This flexible programme can be readily adapted to suit different international markets ensuring it meets the various international teaching requirements in each country and their local demands. Common to all adaptations is the requirement to achieve high standards set by Active IQ, with content that is mapped to EuropeActive Standards.

The Active IQ Personal Training and Fitness Instructor Programme of Study is ready for delivery now with training providers around the world.
