CIMSPA Professional Standards

In partnership with a wide range of leisure industry employers, awarding organisations and technical experts, CIMSPA have developed, and continue to create professional standards that define what a person in a specific professional role (e.g., Coach, personal trainer, group exercise instructor) must know in term of knowledge, and be able to do in terms of their skills.

CIMSPAs professional standards serve as a framework for specific roles and occupations within the sector so that there is a unified and standardised set of criteria that the whole sector can get behind.
