The YMCA Awards Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing - Water Based Exercise is your first step to a career in fitness. It will qualify you to work as an Aquafit Instructor and is the pre-requisite for a number of additional YMCA Awards fitness qualifications.
While we offer open course dates for this training, if you have a number of staff who need to attend it may be more cost effective to book a on-site course, on days and at times that suit you.
To deliver this 5 day course anywhere in Sussex, for a maximum of 16 people, the price is £1800 plus £100 per person (VAT not applicable). Additional costs may be added for courses run outside Sussex or run over more than 5 days.
The cost is fully inclusive of trainer, manuals, assessment and certificates, but does not include venue hire or refreshments. Please note that the venue must be suitable for training the course (please contact us for our advice if you are uncertain).
