Premier Global NASM fast-track successful learners into CIMSPA membership

The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) is today celebrating a unique new partnership with Premier Global NASM, a leading provider of personal trainer and continuous learning courses, as they join the institute as skills development partners.

Premier is the first CIMSPA partner to automatically enter every successful participant of recognised qualifications into membership of the sector’s chartered professional body.

Their level 2 fitness instructing and level 3 personal training certificates are now CIMSPA-endorsed and join over 290 other qualifications recognised by the chartered institute. All learners who successfully complete these qualifications with Premier will gain a 12 month CIMSPA affiliate (exercise and fitness) or practitioner (exercise and fitness) membership included within their qualification.

Nick Bradley, CEO of Premier Global NASM (part of the Ascend Learning Group), commented: “Our combined brands of Premier Global and NASM have been at the forefront of world-class fitness education and training for over 50 years – our mission being to equip fitness professionals across the UK with the inspiration and information to transform lives. We can only achieve this purpose by creating courses and qualifications that adhere to the highest professional standards, demanded by the industry; and that deliver robust foundations and learning pathways to help build successful careers. CIMSPA is leading the charge in terms of defining what our industry needs and putting in place the right structure to enable action. We are absolutely delighted to announce our partnership and shared vision – together we can make a real difference; creating personal, social and economic value.”

Speaking about the new partnership Tara Dillon, CIMSPA CEO said:

“I’d like to thank Premier Global NASM for helping CIMSPA create a strong link between learning and career development for students on these qualifications.

“By building CIMSPA membership into the qualification itself, Premier are helping their students get a real head start – immediately recognised by their sector’s professional body and listed on the CIMSPA Directory – the only register they need to be on. CIMSPA will then take the lead on ensuring they can access quality-assured CPD and an effective career pathway – all built in partnership with the sector’s key employers.

“With our network of awarding organisation, skills development and employer partners we’re building end-to-end quality into the sport and physical activity sector’s workforce development processes for the first time – from qualifications through training to CPD and career development."
