YMCA Awards (previously Central YMCA Qualifications) is the leading and longest-established awarding organisation for health, fitness and wellbeing qualifications in the UK.

YMCA Awards is part of Central YMCA, the world’s first YMCA and forefather of the now global federation that spans 120 countries and touches the lives of 60 million people. Central YMCA Qualifications (now YMCA Awards) was launched in 1998 as the UK’s first and only awarding body to specialise in health and fitness qualifications. A qualification from CYQ became the first nationally recognised measure of standards and skills for those working in the health and fitness sector and the benchmark for both candidates and employers. And today, it still is.

YMCA Awards develops and awards industry-leading qualifications helping people across the world to develop new careers in the health and fitness industry and beyond.

The Health Sciences Academy asked YMCA Awards for an independent review and endorsement of its key advisory certifications. Endorsement of our courses by YMCA Awards demonstrates our high educational standards and high quality resources, making them even more valuable to our learners.

The International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) provides membership and access to discount insurance for every professional in the field of therapy and nutrition. No matter how many different services you offer, everything can be covered under one membership and one insurance.

IICT is an excellent fit for nutritional advisors without the need of joining multiple associations. IICT has the largest list of services (modalities) in the world (1,000+). All advisory courses at The Health Sciences Academy have been approved by IICT and their insurance brokers.

Joining IICT is the first step to getting insurance. They verify your qualification and certificate to ensure you meet their standards. Once approved you can get yourself insured to practice.

The Health Sciences Academy asked IICT to approve all Advisory courses, which means that graduates in the US, Canada, UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland), Australia, Austria, Belgium, Channel Islands, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Mann, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden can join an international community of like-minded professionals and obtain insurance for their new practice or extended services (such as personal trainers offering nutritional advice for their clients).
