Active IQ Level 3 Supporting Clients With Long Term Conditions

Increase your knowledge & Scope Of Practice

The no.1 question we get asked:

"What happened to the Level 3 Exercise Referral qualification?"

This course has been updated and replaced with this brand NEW Level 3 Diploma.

Called: Level 3 Supporting Clients With Long Term Conditions

The main difference you'll notice. There's a NEW name. 

More importantly, this qualification has been heavily updated to reflect the ever increasing prevalence of long term conditions.

The prevalence of long-term conditions is on the rise and the health landscape has changed considerably in the past few years.

A long-term condition is defined as a condition, illness or chronic ill-health that lasts longer than three months and that can not be cured.

Such as asthma, arthritis, cancer, obesity, diabetes, chronic pain, mental health or heart disease and more...

It's heavily documented that over 15 million people in the UK have a long term condition.

The likelihood of a person reaching out or attending your FITPRO service or product is therefore high. 

We all know it's beneficial to train clients as soon as possible after being qualified, but what almost no one understands about training clients is that you cannot work with ANY client that FAILS a PAR-Q.

Even if the client gets a doctors note saying they are fit to train... the FITPRO who trains them still needs to be adeqautely qualified if the client has a common clinical condition. 

Ultimately... upon passing this NEW Diploma you can go on to plan and train clients that refer a PARQ and/or develop a long term condition whilst you train with them.

This is the only qualification that upskills you, provides the knowledge and confidence to plan and deliver safe and effective programmes to those who have a conditions. 

The NEW Supporting Clients With LTC is for FITPROS who:

✔️ Want to train clients who refer a PARQ... maybe this is for health or fitness reasons.

✔️ Want to help clients live a better quality of life. 

✔️ Want to learn how to confidently support a broader range of clients that have a long term conditions.

Still have questions? We’re here to help.

We want you to make the right choice for your situation. 

So let’s take a look at some of the common questions we receive:

I'm studying with another Training Provider - and STRUGGLE with this course.
You are not alone... many providers offer this qualification with limited support, guidance and resources.

Leaving you feeling stuck in your studies. 

You can now purchase all of our resources for £59.99 meaning you can INSTANTLY get clarity in your studies and get moving towards a pass and qualify as a Level 3 Exercise Referral Specialist. 
I haven't fully completed my Level 2 or 3 PT, Yoga or Pilates yet? can I still enroll?
Yes... we have many learners enroll whilst completing their final stage of their course. 

You can start learning and even do your assessments... all we ask is you are complete in your pre-requisite course before you are fully certified for this level 3 diploma in supporting clients with long term conditions. 
Can I just learn this online for free?
Probably. There’s a seemingly endless amount of information for free on every topic available online if you’re willing to look long and hard enough.

However... unless you are adequately qualified your insurance company wont recognise you as safe and effective to work with those who fail a PARQ. 
How much support do I get?
Lots... now you might think this answer is cheesy and something we might not follow through on.

But it's the truth... 

We know walking this FITPRO road can seem daunting, and we want to ensure you know that you’re never walking it alone. We’re here for you in four different ways.

Quick: Reach out in our closed FB group
Direct: Live chat with the Parallel Coaching team with a quick back and forth is all you need.
Comprehensive: Email us if you’re looking to have a more comprehensive and in-depth conversation.
Accountability: Book phone calls with us as often as you like, or schedule ongoing calls to hold you accountable.

And when we say lifetime, we mean it. We have students from eight years ago who still come back to check in and get help.
How much does the L3 Supporting Clients With Long Term Conditions cost?
Great question. This is a one-time fee of £599 

or 5x monthly installments of £125. This means you can split out your payments and make learning more affordable. 
What happens after I enroll?
Immediately after enrolling you’ll be sent an email with your login instructions and credentials for the Parallel Coaching Academy.
