At the recent Training Provider Forum held on 7 April at the FIBO Convention, Julian Berriman the Director of the Professional Standards Committee presented the results of the 2017 EuropeActive Employer Skills Survey. The results of the survey show that only 16% find it easy or very easy to recruit the trainers they want, and 35% claim that current vocational training does not provide the skills that they want from fitness professionals. Based on replies from 213 separate employers (and many were multi-site operators), the skills survey also confirmed that 61% have to provide additional training to the recruits they take on.
