IFSI TERMS & CONDITIONS
- IFSI stands for INTEGRATED FITNESS & SPORTS INSTITUTE
- The purpose of the admission form is to inform the student of the terms and conditions of the course journey, which may include information on the course curriculum, duration, fees, and any specific requirements or expectations for the student. The form may also outline the student’s rights and responsibilities as a participant in the course. It is important for the student to read and understand these terms and conditions before enrolling in the course.
- CFT stands for Certified Fitness Trainer course, CPT Certified Personal Trainer course, NUT stands for Nutrition Course, PTSP stands for Personal training for special population. MT stands for Master Trainer course
- CFT course is affiliated with SPEFL-SC alone, while CPT course is affiliated with SPEFL-SC and accredited with EREPS, which stands for “European Register of Exercise Professionals.” Accreditation with EREPS means that the CPT course has met certain standards and criteria for quality assurance in fitness education, as established by EREPS. In general, affiliation with a professional organization or accreditation from a recognized body can indicate that a training program meets certain standards and is recognized within the industry. It can also enhance the credibility and marketability of the certification or training received by the student.
- The CFT and CPT courses are available in both semi-online and offline formats. The difference between these two formats is primarily in the mode of delivery of the course material and the interaction with the instructor and fellow students. In the offline format, students attend classes physically at a designated location, interact with the instructor and fellow students in person, and receive course material in hard copy format. This mode of delivery allows for face-to-face interactions and hands-on learning experiences. On the other hand, in the semi-online format, students attend classes virtually via an online platform, interact with the instructor and fellow students through various online tools such as video conferencing and discussion forums, and receive course material in soft copy format. This mode of delivery allows for greater flexibility as students can attend classes from anywhere and at any time, provided they have access to the internet and a suitable device. To enrol for either format of the course, students need to confirm the batch they want to join, which refers to the specific schedule and timing of the course. This ensures that they can attend classes and interact with the instructor and fellow students as per their convenience. students are required to keep their cameras on during online lectures Keeping the camera on during online lectures can have several benefits, including creating a more interactive and engaging learning environment, facilitating communication and collaboration among students, and providing the instructor with visual cues to assess students’ comprehension and engagement. Additionally, having cameras on can help to reduce distractions and promote a sense of accountability among students. However, there may be valid reasons why some students prefer to turn off their cameras, such as privacy concerns, technical issues, or distractions in their surroundings. In such cases, students should communicate their concerns to the instructor and explore alternative ways of participating in the class, such as through verbal or written contributions in the chat or discussion forum. Ultimately, the decision to keep the camera on or off during online lectures should be based on the individual’s comfort level and the policies of the instructor or institution providing the course.
