These short courses and eBooks give you a cost-effective way to absorb fundamental information and navigate themes in your own time and at your own pace, providing you with unlimited online access to a world of material from a name you can trust.

If you’re a Personal Trainer looking to refresh your knowledge, a student studying a physical education or fitness qualification, or just hoping to learn something new, you’ll find something to enhance your professional development, improve your career/employment prospects or broaden your mind.

These online courses are not regulated YMCA Awards qualifications, but can be used as evidence of continued professional development (CPD).
