FAQs

WILL THERE BE ANY ADDITIONAL FEES?

No, all of your course, registration, assessment and certification fees are included so there is nothing else pay. We use DPD to ship your resources to you quickly and efficiently, so a small shipping fee will be added during the checkout process.

DO I NEED ACCESS TO A GYM?

Having access to a gym while you are studying will be hugely beneficial. Being able to practise your Olympic Lifting technique using specialist kit like lifting platforms, bumper plates and Olympic bars will help you perfect these advanced movements, but access to this equipment is not essential.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I FAIL AN ASSESSMENT?

You will never fail an assessment! If you don’t pass first time it’s known as a referral, not a fail. Your assessor will give you detailed feedback to help you understand where you have gone wrong and how to improve. You can then resubmit or retake your assessment with no additional fees.

DO I NEED ANY PREVIOUS QUALIFICATIONS?

Yes, you will need to hold a Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training to complete this qualification. If you do not yet have this take a look at our Level 4 Master Diploma in Personal Training.

WHAT IF I'M NOT BASED IN THE UK?

The principles of personal training are the same no matter where in the world you live and we are honoured to have students in many different countries including the UK, Ireland, Australia, Croatia, USA, Thailand, Dubai and China. This programme can be completed mostly through distance learning and online assessment, but it is important to note that the Level 4 Strength and Conditioning course includes 2 attendance days in the UK.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAMME?

This programme has been designed to fit around other commitments and allow you to study without deadlines. Start when you’re ready and qualify at your own pace.  You will complete the theory work from home before attending one practical teaching day and one assessment day. Your attendance days can be held over a single weekend, or split over different weekends to allow you time to go away and practice your skills before you are assessed.
