Personal Trainer Courses
There are lots of personal trainer courses on offer - but you have to be sure to choose a personal trainer course that gets you the right qualification.
Before starting a personal trainer course, you will need basic skills such as gym instructing. You will then need to acquire at least a level 3 certificate in personal training to gain entry to the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), the industry standard for exercise and fitness instructors, teachers and trainers.
The appropriate Level 3 qualifications which will give eligibility for REPs are:
- CYQ Certificate in Personal Training (general populations and special populations)
- Premier IQ Certificate in Personal Training.
Once you are qualified, you need to get experience with a variety of clients to understand how the theory you have learned works in practice - the greater the variety of clients you can work with the better.
