Learners will select this qualification if gym instruction is the discipline route they wish to take and they want to study part time at a college or with a private training provider. Learners will choose the Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Instructing Exercise and Fitness (Gym-based Exercise) if they wish to pursue an apprenticeship route.
