Applying for BACPR Exercise Instructor Training
Hold a Level 3 or an equivalent exercise qualification and preferably although not essential an exercise referral qualification.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme visits
During the Covid – 19 pandemic the requirement for visits to the local cardiac rehabilitation programme has changed to conducting a telephone/ video call interview with a member of the cardiac rehabilitation team. We would ask prior to applying you find out if your chosen cardiac rehab programme is still running a service and complete the contact details on the application form for the cardiac rehab programme.
Submission of Application
- One copy of your application form

Please note revalidation of this qualification is required every 3 years which is done via an online exam
