What support will I get while I am studying with FitLearn?

Through your learning experience, a dedicated FitLearn tutor will be there to guide and offer support via both telephone and email when you need it. Consider us your training partner – when you push yourself, we’ll be right alongside you.

What qualifications do I need to become a Personal Trainer?

To work as a qualified personal trainer within the UK you must hold the following:

  • Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing
  • Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training

You can study for these seperately with FitLearn, or complete our Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training which combines both of these certificates into one qualification.

Once you have completed these core qualifications there are many specialist qualifications and CPD courses available to allow you to continuously expand your knowledge and client base!

When you are looking to complete any course or qualification, make sure that it is certificated by an awarding body (such as NCFE or VTCT) and endorsed/recognised by REPs/CIMPSA. This ensures it will be recognised within the industry.

What can I do after completing a qualification with FitLearn?

By choosing FitLearn as your training provider you are taking your first step onto the ladder towards a successful career in the fitness industry. Once you are qualified, there are many different opportunities available to you, including self-employment or working within a fitness facility.

Different employers will offer different salary packages – some will give you a fixed wage, and others will charge you a fee for use of their facilities (or ask that you work a set number of free hours in the club to cover  this cost) but let you take home all the money you earn from working with clients.

Is studying by distance learning right for me?

Studying by distance learning has many advantages, including:

  • More affordable than classroom-based learning
  • Flexible study to fit around your current commitments
  • Flexible assessments
  • Study at your own pace

You will need to be able to plan your own time effectively and ideally commit yourself to a set number of hours each week for reading, learning and completing distance based assessments such as written question and answers and online exams.

Only you can decide if distance learning is right for you, but you can be sure that when you study with FitLearn, you receive the highest levels of support from our experienced and dedicated team throughout your studies.

What is the pass rate for FitLearn qualifications?

We have a high success rate with many students passing both their theory exams and practical assessments first time. While you are studying, we encourage you to keep in touch with your tutor and ask as many questions as you need – the support we offer is unlimited!

In the unfortunate event that you refer an assessment, there are no limits on the number of times you can retake it, however students do not usually need to re-take assessments more than once.
