Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our personal training courses are accredited by either YMCA Awards or Active IQ, and once you’ve successfully completed the course you’ll be awarded either a Level 3 certificate or diploma in personal training, depending on the course you choose. This qualification is recognised internationally by REPS in the UK, UAE, New Zealand and South Africa; the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS); and Fitness Australia.

More knowledge and better skills can mean greater success in the workplace, so both our Diploma and Advanced Diploma may include extra qualifications not included in personal trainer courses offered elsewhere.

All TRAINFITNESS courses are managed via 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 training days and assessment days (if applicable), and watch our recorded eClasses.

Using the TRAINFITNESS app you can also do all of this on the move via the Mobile Student Desktop. The app is compatible with Apple iOS 8.1 and above and Android Jellybean (4.2.2) and above*, and of course you’ll need internet connection.

If you’ve chosen our Distance Study option you’ll work through the online course material at your own pace and book onto assessment days at one of our course venues whenever you’re ready.

If you’ve chosen our Part or Full Time study options you’ll also need to attend your scheduled course days.

Before you request the relevant certificate, you must complete the online course material in your own time and outside of any attendance requirements, regardless of the study option you choose.

There’s no guarantee that any course will be run for more than two (2) years from the date you enrol, and it’s your responsibility to ensure that you complete the course within this time frame.

*Devices, manufacturers and operating systems are subject to change

Depending on the course you choose, if you’ve chosen Distance Study you’ll need to book onto and attend a number of assessment days at one of our course venues.

  • Certificate = 3 Saturdays
  • Diploma = the T3 workshop + 4 Saturdays + either 3 days or 3 video assessments
  • Advanced = the T3 workshop + 5 Saturdays + either 3 days or 3 video assessments

Depending on the course you choose, if you've chosen to study Part Time you’ll need to attend the course days scheduled at one of our course venues. These are normally consecutive Saturdays or Sundays, but please check with us first to make sure.

  • Certificate = 12 Saturdays or 12 Sundays
  • Diploma = the T3 workshop + either 18 Saturdays or 18 Sundays
  • Advanced = the T3 workshop + either 19 Saturdays or 18 Sundays + 1 Saturday

Also dependant on your chosen course, if you’ve chosen to study Full Time you’ll need to attend the scheduled course days at one of our course venues Monday to Friday for either four or five weeks.

  • Certificate = 4 weeks’ Full Time
  • Diploma = 5 weeks’ Full Time + the T3 workshop + 1 possible Saturday
  • Advanced = 5 weeks’ Full Time + the T3 workshop + 1 Saturday + 1 possible Saturday

The T3 workshop is a two-day workshop. Although it’s included in the Diploma and Advanced Diploma, you need to book onto it separately after you’ve successfully completed the level 2 component of the course. The Level 3 Award in Business and Marketing Skills is also part of the Diploma and Advanced Diploma. It consists of online course material and a portfolio which you will complete in your own time and not during the period of attendance.

No prior education is required before starting one of our personal training courses – everything you need to know will be covered within the course material.

A basic level of English and Maths will be necessary to understand the content and ideally you’ll have a keen personal interest in fitness.

If you already hold a Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification, you’ll start at the Level 3 Personal Trainer section of the course.

There are three payment options available for our personal trainer courses:

Pay Up Front – Choose to pay in full, up front, via PayPal, a credit or debit card, over the phone, via our secure online portal or in person and you’ll benefit from a discount of up to 20%.

Finance Plans (Up to Five Years)* – If approved for finance, you can pay off your personal training course over a number of months with one of our finance plans. These may include 0% interest and zero credit charges on terms of six months to five years with a deposit of just 10% in some instances*.

Find out more about our finance plans here.

External Funding – You may be eligible to receive funding via an approved external scheme such as ELCAS (Enhanced Learning Credits), 24+ Advanced Learning Loans or PFA funding.

For more information about any of our payment options, please contact our Enrolments team on 02072929140.

* Deposit amounts and term durations vary and are at the lender’s discretion.

Learner Support – As well as the support you receive from your tutor on a scheduled course day during your personal trainer course (if applicable), you’ll also have access to our Learner Support team, dedicated to assisting you with study questions and queries. The team is generally available via phone, email or through the Helpdesk Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm GMT, excluding Bank holidays and office closures.

eClasses – We offer eClasses on a variety of topics covered in your personal trainer course, during which we go over content and answer questions you might have about it. The schedule can be found in your Student Desktop, where an eClass can be booked or viewed at the click of a button. All eClasses are recorded and added to our dedicated online library, if you’re unable to attend or you'd like to hear them again.

Feedback Service – During your personal trainer course you’ll be assessed in various ways, including via portfolio, and theory and practical assessments. You’re able to send us a video of what you intend to do for your practical assessment and or what you intend to submit as your portfolio beforehand and one of our qualified assessors will provide detailed feedback, both on areas you've done well in and areas that could use improvement. You just need to do this at least two weeks prior to the due date of the assessment or the submission date of the portfolio.

Online Community – If you prefer peer-to-peer help with your personal training course then you can also join in the conversation on one of our social media profiles: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram.
