What qualifications do I need to become a Personal Trainer?

by Fitlearn Team in

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) or endorsed/recognised by REPs/CIMPSA. This ensures it will be recognised within the industry.
