We're getting in touch to let you know that we're withdrawing the YMCA Level 3 Award in Nutrition for Physical Activity (501/0118/3). We're replacing this qualification with the YMCA Level 3 Award in Nutrition to Support Physical Activity (603/3098/3), which is already available.

We believe updating the qualification allows your learners to benefit from:

  • content mapped to the nutrition elements of the CIMSPA Personal Trainer professional standard
  • a shorter external assessment testing recall knowledge
  • a Y-Mark assessment workbook to assess understanding of the subject area

You'll be able to continue registering learners against our Level 3 Award in Nutrition for Physical Activity (501/0118/3) until 31 December 2018. The certification end date will be 31 December 2019 giving learners a minimum of 12 months to complete the course.

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch.
