If you’re on either the gym instructor or personal trainer distance study option, you can choose to enrol and book onto an optional training day. These can be used to replace the 20 practicum hour requirements in the gym instructor course.

The training days are practical focussed and cover key aspects of the Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer practical assessment components.
