UPGRADE: Advanced PT Diploma

Who is this course for?

This personal trainer diploma is for students already holding the level 2 in gym instruction or equivalent.

As soon as you graduate, you will be qualified as an advanced personal trainer at level 3 with a Diploma.

To be a personal trainer means that you are taking a step further within the fitness industry. This means that you will be studying to be able to work with people on an individual basis. You will be offering them nutritional guidance, designing advanced routines to meet individual needs and coaching your clients towards changing their lifestyle for the better.

This is an extremely rewarding but challenging career. Our course is designed to give you much more than what you would find elsewhere. This is because we aim to ensure our graduates are better prepared for the challenges of the career.

What will I be covering?

  • Anatomy and Physiology at level 3
  • Nutrition
  • Advanced programming
  • Practical coaching techniques

You will be sitting two multiple choice theory exams, completing worksheets and working through a challenging, but interesting case study. Your case study will require you to personally train a client for real. Meaning you gain lots of experience!

How is this course funded? How do I pay my fees?

This course is eligible for the government funded 19+ advanced learner loan. You can also fund this qualification via our interest free, Vocational Academy Student Budget Account (VASBA). This is where you can either spread the whole fees over 6, 9, 12 or 15 months interest free. Or work back half of the fees as an apprentice trainer and only have the other half to pay back over the same plans outlined above.
