FITNESS INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATE
The Fitness Instructor Certificate is the foundation of all certified fitness career-paths. This entry-level qualification is required to begin working as a certified gym instructor. Please note, it is NOT a Personal Trainer certification in its own right.
However, the Fitness Instructor Certificate is a pre-requisite to becoming certified as a Personal Trainer and is therefore also included as part of the EPTI Basic, Advanced and Master PT Diplomas.
The qualification is recognised in the UK by both CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs); and around the world by the International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPS) and provides eligibility for entry on to the UK Register of Exercise Professionals at level 2 (level 3 in Europe).
The course is delivered with a blended learning approach. It consists of online home study from the Active IQ e-learning platform, with support and guidance from EPTI tutors every step of the way.
It concludes with a 4-day practical course at your preferred training campus. During this time, you will receive practical coaching and support that exceeds industry requirements for this certificate and you will complete theoretical and practical assessments.
The course is available with or without accommodation.
