Excelsior Development Technologies, a bespoke learning and development consultancy providing education and training to the health and fitness industry, has achieved Active IQ Centre Approval status.
Active IQ is one of the UK’s leading awarding organisations for the active leisure, learning and wellbeing sector. This achievement confirms that Excelsior is now able to offer Active IQ qualifications in:
- Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instruction
- Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training
- Level 3 Certificate in Designing Exercise Programmes for Older Adults
We believe that these three recognised qualifications provide the fundamental building blocks for facilities, ensuring that the general population can exercise safely and effectively within the gym environment.
Excelsior has always been committed in supporting operators in establishing their own Internal Academies, providing them with the ability to create and deliver staff qualifications and in-house CPDs, whilst meeting the values, beliefs and mission of their organisation and in doing so, strengthening their unique offering.
Keith Smith says “As the fitness industry develops and inevitability changes, the need for facilities to become independent and distinctive will determine their success. Strengthening the knowledge, skills and confidence of all staff underpins the unique experiences offered by an organisation.”
With an Internal Academy being an essential part in the delivery of a unique exerciser experience for facilities. Excelsior are also able to offer The Level 3 Certificate in Education and Training via ActiveIQ. This recognised qualification is a vital element in equipping key facility staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver quality in-house learning and development to all members of the team.
