Launch of new eLearning and online resources to support Level 3 Certificate in Exercise Referral (QCF)
Active IQ Academy has announced the launch of a range of new eLearning and online resources to support Exercise Referral students.
The Level 3 qualification is
aimed at fitness instructors and personal trainers who wish to work
with a range of special populations, including those with
cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, musculoskeletal and mental
The new resources will give learners further scope to build on
existing Level 2 and Level 3 skills, such as instructing and

Yvonne Cooper, Director at Active IQ Academy, comments: "This is

traditional classroom delivery, because learners can skip material
they already know and understand, and move onto the areas they need
extra help with. The inclusion of audio, interactive content and
quizzes not only consolidates learning and application, but also
becomes the perfect revision tool."
With exercise referral schemes becoming commonplace across the UK

the importance of understanding the exercise referral process
within the scope of professional practice is a key area of study
for exercise professionals.
Julian Berriman, Research & Development Director, comments:
"The Level 3 Certificate in Exercise Referral is a very modern
qualification, both in terms of content and learning methods, and
is now a pre-requisite for Level 4 entry to the Register of
Exercise Professionals. The course content reflects contemporary
industry initiatives towards greater integration with the health
