COVID-19: Important information

Important: Information update as of 15th June 2020

Though we are not ‘yet’ in a position to confirm resumption of our education and training courses, we are updating all of our risk assessment procedures in line with Government guidance and sector specific guidance. We are also liaising with venues hosts around requirements for a safe return to face-to-face training elements. You can read our FAQs on this topic here.

Due to the current review and changes to professional and occupational standards being undertaken by the Chartered Institute of Management for Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) we/LLT are currently not delivering this qualification. You can read more about CIMSPA professional standards here.

Please note that this qualification is still valid and forms part of the Register of Exercise Professionals Training Framework. You can read more about the REPs training framework here.
