As February comes to a close we will be working on the website listings to make sure the public can clearly identify Instructors who are also qualified to provide fitness advice as previously explained. We believe it is essential to have this background knowledge in order to teach Nordic Walking effectively at the correct level for every participant and have tried to make it simple and affordable for our early Instructors to upgrade.
If you have completed the CYQ or are already fitness qualified please can you log in to your profile page and tick the little box to say you are level 2 fitness qualified. Failure to do so before the end of March could result in your listing being frozen so please take a minute to pop in and get it done asap.
IF YOU COMPLETED YOUR TRAINING PRIOR TO THE LAUNCH OF THE CYQ PLEASE ACT NOW – see below!
Many of you who completed the old format of Instructor training prior to 2009 have now been in touch and are working through the on line ‘Exercise and Fitness knowledge module in order to gain your level 2 fitness Instructor status which is fantastic.
