This Gym Instructor qualification is an industry recognised qualification and is for anyone who wants to pursue a career in the health and fitness industry. It will enable the holder to work as a gym instructor and will also enable them to progress to a Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification if they wish to. The course combines independent theory study at home with face to face training in a gym environment (4 day’s face-to-face practical training plus assessments).
Students have 4 months to achieve the qualification. Even though the theory is studied from home we have a student mentor available to support students with questions they may have.
We recommend that anyone interested in this course is a regular gym user and they need to be over 16 years old.
