This unique and comprehensive e-learning course has been created to introduce learners to all aspects of working in the health and fitness industry, from the types of environment they are likely to be working in and how they should behave, to how they can develop their skills and find new opportunities.

The course supports the delivery of the Understanding the health and fitness industry unit, which is part of the YMCA Awards Level 1 Award in Fitness and Physical Activity qualification.

The content covers:

  • Features of the health and fitness industry
  • Employment and career opportunities
  • Features of professional behaviour.

Features include:

  • Highly engaging design, illustrations and interactions
  • Elements of gamification
  • Video case studies
  • Final assessment.

'This eLearning course really helped in the delivery of the Level 1 Fitness and Physical Activity qualification, reinforcing and even building upon the face-to-face component of the course.... The learners loved the activities and games within the eLearning, which helped bring the content to life and hold their attention throughout the session - which can sometimes be a challenge in the classroom!'
