The Level 2 Award in Instructing Kettlebells is aimed at learners who already have knowledge and skills in fitness instruction to a professionally competent level. It will enable you to plan and deliver safe, effective kettlebell exercises and training sessions.
Courses are due to be delivered:

Tuesday March 10th 18.00-21.00 for 3 weeks
You need a suitable Level 2 Fitness Instructing qualification e.g. Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing. Some experience of kettlebell training is useful.
The course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential. Therefore a degree of physical fitness is necessary.
It also involves an element of communication (discussing, presenting, reading and writing) and learners should have basic skills in communication pitched at Level 2.
This qualification comprises two units:
Unit 1 - Planning a Kettlebell Exercise Session
Unit 2 - Instructing a Kettlebell Exercise Session
You will be assessed through the completion of worksheets and a formal observation of a kettlebell training session.
You may wish to join the Evolve Fitness gym at Derby College. There are memberships available to you when you sign up to study this course.
This qualification provides progression to Level 3 qualifications in Personal Training and can also provide progression to courses in other related areas such as Sports Massage.

Ever since school, Katy Morten had set her heart on becoming a personal trainer.
By the age of just 21, she had already achieved her career goal – thanks to a sport apprenticeship programme run by Derbyshire Dales District Council in partnership with Derby College.
Having secured a full-time job as an instructor at Bakewell Swimming Pool, Katy particularly enjoys helping people to reach their goals – whether it be weight loss or training for a particular sporting event.
I knew I could get nationally recognised qualifications more quickly on an apprenticeship – and having lots of work experience in the industry under my belt would stand me in good stead when looking for employment. Plus, who could argue with being paid to learn?
There’s a real feel-good factor to my job – just knowing you have helped someone improve their lifestyle and become happier with themselves.
