I can confirm the eLearning tool is not a mandatory studying resource. It is designed to offer a different learning style from the manual as some of our learners prefer visual and interactive learning as they struggle to study from the book alone.

The content within the eLearning is not different to the content within your manual, the eLearning, however, is laid out to break down each unit within the qualification and quiz yourself to let yourself know if you are getting the answers correct.

Active IQ has advised that you would require a laptop or computer to access your eLearning account as an iPad or mobile phone would not have the full capability to perform all the functions within the eLearning.

Please note the price will increase from £35.00 to £70.00 for the GYM and ETM course when purchasing after your booking has been processed.
