How Long Does It Take to Get my “Paperwork Assessment” or “Video Assessment” Marked?

For the Level 2 Fitness Instructor course and the Level 3 Personal Training course, it will normally take around 10 working days (equivalent to 14 days) to get any assessment submission marked.

For other courses, especially level 4 and 5 courses, the marking process will take around 3-4 weeks to be completed.

PS. When you re-submit any part of the assessment (paperwork or practical assessment) it will take the same time as above for the marking of re-assessments to be completed and a feedback to be issued to you. Please ensure the paperwork and/or video assessment sent to us, is as complete as possible and have enough details to achieve a pass mark, and so, we will be able to certify you, without the need to request you to re-submit any part of your paperwork or video assessment.

How Long Does It Take to Get my “E-Certificate” or “Completion Letter”?

After you have completed the entire course, passing on both “Practical Assessment” and “Paperwork Assessment”. We will email you within around 7 working days, the “E-Certificate” (for learners that have already completed the full payment for their course) or “Completion Letter” (for learners that still have payments left for their course).

PS. Level 4 and Level 5 e-certificates can take longer, around 1-3 months (we can issue a completion letter quickly as soon as all units are completed).

How Long Does It Take to Get my “Hard Copy Certificate”?

After you have completed the entire course, passing on both “Practical Assessment” and “Paperwork Assessment”. We will send you the “Hard Copy Certificate” within around 60-90 working days counting from the date that all assessments have been passed (for learners that have already completed the full payment for their course). Please note that you can use the “E-Certificate” to start working straight away, and so, you don’t need to keep waiting for the “Hard Copy Certificate” to start looking for jobs. PS. Level 4 and Level 5 qualifications can take around 3-6 months to get the hard copy certificate after all units are completed and payments are also completed.

How are you assessed for the level 2 fitness instructor course and level 3 personal training course?

There are 2 assessment parts that need to be completed:- Paperwork (portfolio), this part of the course is basically a word document (containing questions and assignments) that can be completed on your own time, and when you are ready to send for marking, you can send the paperwork (portfolio) by email on admin@bisma.org – Practical Assessment, this can be completed by attending a practical assessment or by sending us a video assessment by email on admin@bisma.org

We have a learner portal that includes video lessons, e-books and other learner resources. We also have open-days and assessment-days available for distance learners to help them in completing their practical assessment and paperwork (portfolio).  

What is the estimated length of time that the course takes?

Most Learners complete the course in about 6-8 weeks

Are the 10 optional CPD courses all conducted online with online assessments and certification?

Yes, the CPD courses can be completed online, and get the certification also, and we have optional open days for the CPD courses also.
