A major impact of the project will be the development of a more professional level of fitness instructors and personal trainers, who meet the European occupational standards for fitness instructor and personal trainer occupations. These standards are referenced to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
This will also enhance consistency of Vocational Education and Training while promoting the mobility of exercise professionals across Europe, which will ultimately safeguard consumers with a potential impact on 40 million Europeans through health enhancing physical activity.
The use of the eLF outcomes will facilitate the growth and expansion of the physical activity sector in Europe while addressing existing inadequacies in professional standards for Health Fitness Instructors and Personal Trainers.
The eLF project will provide an accessible route for students of physical activity to gain the knowledge, skills and competence required via e-Learning in a manner suited to validation and certification on conclusion.
