You can ask, whenever you want, any type of questions to our support team and get prompt replies

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.

How recognised is my course?

The qualification you’ll receive at the end of your course will be awarded by VTCT, which is a Government-approved awarding organisation that develops vocational systems of qualifications. Our courses are also fully REPs and CIMSPA approved. Future Fit Training is actually a founder member of REPs. Membership of REPs enables fitness professionals to prove they have attained an industry recognised level of skill, knowledge and competence in their chosen field of expertise. 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 recognized 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.

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.
  • Pay as you learn
    - Lowest deposit - start training from only £175
    - Spread your payments over a number of months to suit your budget
    - Benefit from our lowest ever monthly payments
  • Pay a deposit then settle the balance
  • Pay in full
  • Pay using a Professional Career Development Loan
We offer other ways to fund your training and we also accept ELCAS for Armed Forces personnel.

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 here, 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 kind of support and resources do you provide for online programmes?

Our extensive Tutor Support team is on hand by phone, email and Facebook to answer any questions that students may have about their training to ensure they are always fully supported and on track. In terms of resources, you will be offered the following: flexible e-learning (which includes text, images, animation, audio and video), list of recommended readings that will be a core part of your learning, a dedicated Tutor (who you are going to meet in person) and access to our Student Zone where you find, among other resources, a section dedicated to equipment packs.
