Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our personal training courses are recognised and accredited by REPs and YMCA awards. That means once you have completed the course you will hold full personal trainer status and be qualified to work as such in any UK or EU gym. Other qualifications included in our diploma and advanced training courses may have additional awarding bodies e.g. Institute of Leadership and Management, but they are all also REPs accredited.

All courses with us are managed through our on-line learning portal called Student Desktop. Once you've signed up to a course you will gain access to all the material relevant to your course within your personal learning environment. If you have chosen our Distance Study option you can simply work through this material at your own pace and book in for assessments at your local examination centre when you feel ready. If you have chosen a Part Time or Full Time Study option you will also need to attend your allocated classroom sessions. Throughout the course of these classroom sessions you will be assessed on both the practical and theory of personal training meaning you don't have to book in for separate assessment dates. It is asked that all students complete the on-line material throughout the duration of their course regardless of study option.

If you have chosen Distance Study you will need to attend several assessment sessions at your local centre.

  • Certificate = 3 Saturday Assessments.
  • Diploma = 4 Saturday Assessments.
  • Advanced = 5 Saturday Assessments.

If you've chosen to study Part Time you will need to attend classroom and assessment sessions for between 12-19 consecutive Saturdays or Sundays based on your choice of course and which venue you choose to attend.

  • Certificate = 12 Saturdays or Sundays.
  • Diploma = 18 Saturdays or Sundays.
  • Advanced = 19 Saturdays or Sundays.

If it's the Full Time option you've gone for you will be required to attend classroom and assessment sessions Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm for either 4 or 5 weeks dependant on your chosen course.

  • Certificate = 4 Weeks Full Time.
  • Diploma = 5 Weeks Full Time + 1 possible Saturday.
  • Advanced = 5 Weeks Full Time + 1 Saturday.

If you are enrolled on the T3 programme you will also need to complete an additional weekend of training.

No prior education is required before starting a personal training course as everything you need to know will be covered within the learning material. A basic level of English and Maths will be necessary to understand the content and ideally you will have a keen personal interest in fitness. If you already hold a Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification, you will move start at the Level 3 Personal Trainer part of the course.

There are 3 payment options available for those looking to become a personal trainer. These are to pay upfront, pay over a period of up to 5 years with our finance options or to receive funding from an external programme e.g. ELCAS.

Pay Upfront: Your course can be paid for in full up front and you will receive a discount of up to 20% for doing so. The balance can be settled using PayPal, a credit or debit card, over the phone, via our secure online portal or in person.

Finance Options: You can choose to pay off your personal training course over a number of months by taking advantage of our finance option. A minimum deposit of 10% is required for all finance options and payments can be spread over any period up to 5 years. To find out more about our finance options Click Here.

External Funding: We accept a number of external funding providers, these include ELCAS (Enhanced Learning Credits), 24+ Loans and PFA funding. For more information about any funding option, please contact our team of career advisors.

Tutor Support Help Desk: Aside from the contact you would receive from a tutor on training weekends, you will also have access to our dedicated tutor support help desk. The sole purpose of our tutor support help desk is to assist you with all your study questions and queries. Our team are available via phone, email or through your online learning environment (desktop or mobile).

eClasses: Our tutor support team hold regular eclasses on a variety of topics where they will explain course content in detail and answer any questions you may have on the topic. A full schedule of eclasses can be found in your online learning learning environment and can be booked at the click of a button. All eclasses are recorded and added to our learning library if you are unable to attend or you'd like to hear them again. In addition to tutor support and virtual classes we also offer an assessor feedback service.

Feedback Service: Before you submit your work you will be able to send it to one of our qualified assessors who will provide detailed feedback on both areas you've done well and areas that could use improvement.

Online Community: If you prefer peer-to-peer help then why not join in the conversation on one of our social media profiles: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram.
