  • Get a UK-Regulated and globally recognised qualification now

    Our regulated health, fitness and wellbeing qualifications are designed with industry experts and employers.

    Gain world class qualifications
    As experts in education, health and wellbeing we’ve been developing UK-regulated and globally-recognised qualifications for 25 years.
    We work with industry experts, employers and professional bodies to ensure our qualifications provide you with the knowledge and skills required to progress in your career. Whether learners are looking to take their first steps into the industry or are established fitness professionals, we have a qualification to help them get ahead.
    Explore end-point assessments
    Once learners have completed all the learning on an apprenticeship programme in England, they need to complete an end-point assessment to prove they are occupationally competent. Our range of end-point assessment products support learners on-programme to ensure they are fully supported to demonstrate their potential.
    Explore endorsed programmes
    We have endorsed a range of our approved training provider’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programes to recognise high quality content.

    Endorsed programmes include workshops, seminars and masterclasses. These are not regulated qualifications but offer opportunities to gain additional knowledge and/or skills, often in areas related to our regulated qualifications.

    Central YMCA has been helping people make positive changes in their lives since 1844

    How to become a YMCA Awards Centre
