At national level in the UK, there is the Central YMCA which
offers the RSA Basic Certificate and several other of its own
certificates relating to exercise such as weight training, circuit
training, ante- and post-natal exercise, exercise for seniors, aqua,
fitness assessment. These are offered by the area offices of the
Central YMCA throughout the UK.
At the regional level in the UK, there are many organisations such
as commercial companies or colleges of further education which also
offer the RSA Basic Certificate. Some organisations such as local
authorities may offer their own certificates.
When choosing who to get certified with, choose carefully. The same
certification may cost more with one organisation than another, and
some organisations have a reputation for high quality. The
Central YMCA has an excellent reputation, although its courses are
not the cheapest. You need to decide if you are only interested in
a certificate or you wish to study on a quality course. Ask the
course organiser for recent students who you can contact to find out
about the course.
