Overview
Qualify online in under 6-weeks and work with anyone who FAILS a PAR-Q...

Everyone's talking about training clients, right? 

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 train them still needs to be exercise referral qualified if the client has a common clinical condition. 

the BIGGEST myth to dispel... being qualified in exercise referral IS NOT just about working in a referral scheme. 

With Obesity rates rising, Low back pain on the increase and mental health conditions spiraling in the UK to name a few.

It's almost guaranteed your current and future clients will refer a PARQ. 

and therefore these clients MUST be trained by an exercise referral specialist. 

The Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral will focus on 5 key areas: 

1️⃣ You'll learn how to liaise with Medical Professionals to build your network of possible clients and help those recommended from their GP.

2️⃣ You'll understand the signs, symptoms and basic pathology of 14 common clinical conditions.

3️⃣ You'll become familiar with the implications and effects of specific medications relating to those conditions.

4️⃣ You'll confidently plan a progressive adapted physical activity and nutrition programme, personalised to client's needs and lifestyle.

5️⃣ You'll competently deliver, manage and evaluate a safe and effective exercise referral session.

Gaining the Exercise Referral qualification will allow you to train ANY CLIENT... broadening your reach to work with more people or specialising in one specific area such as obesity. 

You'll have more knowledge, practical application, confidence to get long lasting client's results and the pre-requisite to access many of the Level 4 Specialist qualifications.

What's more, all of this happens without attendance days and additional traveling costs. Meaning you can learn ANYWHERE, anytime. 

Enrollment takes a few minutes and you'll have access to all your resources immediately.
