With new CPD e-learning course
fibodo, the creator of a new booking management platform launched earlier this year to help PTs and coaches run their own business more easily, has partnered with FitPro to create a CIMSPA-accredited CPD e-learning course.
The Grow Your Coaching Business course is aimed at coaches and PTs wanting to gain valuable business skills to more effectively and efficiently run their business. The course empowers them to set up and run a successful PT or coaching business, making the most of easy-to-use technology and software to free up time and energy for nurturing clients.
The e-learning course, which is expected to take students three hours to complete, includes modules on business essentials and best practice, insurance, consumer trends, attracting new clients, selling yourself and maximising earning potential. Technology tools including Facebook, Instagram, fibodo, TrustPilot and Hootsuite are all covered in detail. It will be worth three developmental points from CIMSPA.
Megan Sowney, commercial director of fibodo, says, “Consumers want products and services to come to them, and they want to pay without cash – which has led to the success of services like Just Eat and Deliveroo. fibodo’s Grow Your Coaching Business course gives learners an understanding of what consumers want and, in doing so, how they can use technology to attract and retain clients.
“The course has been developed in partnership with FitPro and is readily accessible via FitPro’s new CPD platform – meaning learners from our partner organisations in colleges, universities, national governing bodies and private training providers can complete the course easily in their own time, supported by a community of experienced business owners.”
Brent Hallo, director at FitPro, adds, “For both sports and fitness coaches, clients are critical to their success – without them, they have no business. FitPro is pleased to support fibodo in the production and hosting of this course, which will give fundamental business skills to sports and fitness coaches across the UK, ultimately helping them to earn a living. Utilising technology and having an online presence is the future of coaching, which is why we are making the course easily accessible for all via our new CPD platform.”
