We are always happy to discuss your training needs so please contact us if you would like further advice on any AllActive courses. Please find answers to some common questions below…


What is the difference between a Chair-based Exercise Instructor and RQF Chair-based Exercise Instructor?

The e-learning resources for both of these Chair-based Exercise (CBE) Instructor courses is the same and it’s entirely your preference which qualification you chose to complete. Both enable you to lead your own chair-based exercise classes for frailer older adults. The RQF CBE qualification requires sending practical evidence as part of the assessment and includes face-to-face workshops and so takes longer to complete.

Do I need the RQF version of the Chair-based Exercise qualification?

This really is a matter of preference and depends on whether you might want to progress into other areas of Adult Fitness in the future. If you just want to lead your own Chair-based Exercise Class the Chair-based Exercise Instructor qualification will suffice.

I have a Chair-based Exercise qualification already, can I ‘add on’ a unit so that I have the RQF accredition too?

Please contact us directly about this as we will need to review this on an individual case-by-case basis.

Once I have my CBE qualification will I be insured to run my own classes?

It is important to consider insurance and make sure that adequate cover in place to cover you or your organisation.

Where can I buy equipment to use in my Chair-based fitness classes?

Do I have to do study online?

If I opt for e-learning how can I refer back to training resources in the future?

You will have 3 to 12 months access to the online e-learning materials depending on the qualification you chose. There is the option to purchase a hard copy of the course manual but please contact us for more information.

What is a RQF qualification?

Each unit has a credit value and the credits can be transferred, the system gives the students the ability to get qualifications at their own pace. Read more here
