How are your courses delivered

HOW IS THE COURSE DELIVERED?

All of our courses are managed through our online learning portal. A main feature of the portal is the Student Desktop which you’ll gain access to as soon as you’ve enrolled. Through it you can view your online course material, book onto course days, training days and or assessment days, and access our library of recorded audio-visual eClasses~. We were the first fitness course provider in the UK to offer online learning, and the bespoke software we’ve developed has been used by other training providers and universities.

With our extensive experience of using technology to enhance the learning process, we created the TRAINFITNESS app. With it you can do all of the above on your mobile phone or tablet via the Mobile Student Desktop. The app is compatible with Apple iOS 8.1 and above and Android Jellybean (4.2.2) and above*. We are the only training provider that offers a study app. We continue to invest in the ongoing development of the Student Desktop and Mobile Student Desktop and both were recently upgraded and re-designed by an award winning User Experience specialist to make your learning experience even better.

We offer different study options for many of our courses. All study options include online course material which you’ll complete in your own time and outside of any attendance requirements. Regardless of the study option you choose, there is no difference in the qualification you receive: the qualification certificate does not state the study option. Before you can request this certificate, you must satisfy and complete all course requirements. This includes, for example, the online course material.

There’s no guarantee that any course will be offered for more than two years from the date you enrol, so you need to make sure you complete the course within this time frame. All information on this page is to be read subject to this condition.
