Fees

Details of our fees for approved training providers.

We believe in fair, transparent pricing. This page outlines the fees we will charge our approved providers from 1 January 2024.

We require all providers to spend a minimum of £350 in registration fees per external quality assurance activity (EQA activity). If you require external quality assurance and haven't spent £350 in registration fees since your last EQA activity, we will need to charge you the difference.

 

If you're a learner, you'll need to find a training provider to get an accurate cost for completing one of our qualifications. Training providers will charge learners more than the prices listed below to cover the costs of the delivery of teaching and assessment they complete on our behalf.

Select a category below to find out more about the fees for that product and/or service.


Occupational entry qualification – qualifications that allow a learner to enter the sector or a new job role e.g.:

  • YMCA Level 2 Certificate in Exercise and Fitness: Group Exercise Instructing
  • YMCA Level 2 Diploma in Exercise and Fitness: Gym Instructing
  • YMCA Level 3 Diploma in Exercise and Fitness: Personal Training.
 AwardCertificateDiploma
Level 2£35£45£55

Level 4£55£65£75

 

Population/environment qualification – qualifications that allow a learner to expand their scope of practice to work with a wider range of clients or in new settings (e.g. within a school environment) e.g. YMCA Level 3 Award in Supporting Participation in Physical Activity: Perinatal.

 AwardCertificate
Level 2£25£50
Level 3£30£55
Level 4£35£60

 

Equipment/technical qualifications – qualifications that allow a learner to work with additional equipment or further their knowledge and understanding e.g.:

  • YMCA Level 2 Award in Punching, Kicking and Padwork
  • YMCA Level 4 Certificate in Applied Nutrtion for Health, Wellness, Weight Management and Sports Performance.
 AwardCertificate
Level 2£25£25
Level 3£30£30

Where a qualification is made up of two or more smaller qualifications (e.g. YMCA Level 3 Diploma in Exercise and Fitness: Gym Instructing and Personal Training), the fee will be 10% lower than the sum of fees for the constituent qualifications.

We require customers to spend a minimum of £350 on learner registrations per EQA activity. If you require an EQA activity and have spent less than £350 on qualification registration fees since we last completed quality assurance for your centre, you will be charged the difference to cover our administration and external quality assurance costs.
