Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?

There’s a lot to consider, and you’re bound to have some questions. We’d love to hear from you, but you might just find the answer here.

What qualifications do you need to become a Personal Trainer?

To become a Personal Trainer you need an accredited and recognised qualification such as:

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer Diploma. This qualification will give you everything you need to become a successful personal trainer.
  • Level 4 Total Immersion Personal Trainer Diploma. A higher level qualification that will set you apart and allow you to specialise and increase your personal trainer salary.

To become a fitness instructor or gym instructor you would need a qualification such as:

  • Level 2 Gym Instructor Course. This course is your starting point within the fitness industry and from where you can continue to develop your career as a personal trainer.
Who awards this personal trainer diploma course?

The qualification you’ll receive at the end of your course will be awarded by Transcend. Transcend Awards are proud to be recognised by Ofqual as a regulated and industry specialist awarding organisation. Our courses are also fully CIMSPA approved.

Future Fit Training were the CPD launch partners with CIMSPA. Being CIMSPA certified means you will work in a respected industry, where standards are regulated, and your qualifications are valued.

Are your qualifications internationally recognised?

Our Level 3 Complete Personal Training Diploma and Level 4 Total Immersion Diploma qualifications are recognised by employers internationally and students can also work abroad with REPs and EREPs recognition.

The International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPs) is a partnership between the various registration bodies which means qualifications gained in those countries are transferable and recognised: UK, Ireland, Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE, Canada.

How long does it take to complete a personal trainer diploma?

It is difficult to give a definitive answer because every student is different. Some students are able to study full-time, some can commit 16 hours per week – others only 6-8 hours. You may want to mix intensive periods of study with ‘rest’ periods to fit around work and family commitments.

Also, you may be happy to attend courses in any location, giving you a greater choice of courses dates, while others may not. This is why we like to spend time designing your training plan with you before you enrol with us so that it fits around your commitments and the time you can dedicate to study.

Can I complete the Level 3 Personal Training Diploma in 6 weeks?

No. We do not offer short courses. Our graduates are recognised as being the best in the industry because we prepare students to do more than just pass a qualification. However, students can also set their own training hours and they will be qualified to work in the industry as soon as they successfully pass each module/assessment. For Level 2 Gym Instructor Course, students normally take three months, including home study and practical elements. For Level 3 Personal Training Diploma, most students take up to 6 months to fully qualify and then they are ready to charge £30/hour. We will continue to upskill them for another 6 months. This diploma also includes home study and practical weekends to attend.

Does Future Fit Training offer guaranteed interviews once I qualify?

The simple answer is yes. Within the School of Personal Training, we have teamed up with some respected companies to make your move from student to fitness professional even easier. Many offers guaranteed interviews to our Personal Training Diploma graduates for available positions as fitness instructors, studio-based instructors and personal trainers on completion of your relevant training programme. We also have some great tips on personal trainer careers, to help with writing a successful CV, preparing for an interview, or getting your new career or business venture moving in the right direction.

What is the price and how can I pay?

It depends on which diploma/course you are looking at enrolling on. Below are some standard options available to pay for your course.

  1. Pay as you learn
    - Lowest deposit - start training from only £175
    - Spread your payments over a number of months to suit your budget

I signed up with Future Fit Training for the Level 2 gym instructor qualification, hoping to become better educated to support my blog and my own training. I have a rowing blog and wanted a more thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology and to learn about what strength training would support my rowing.
