How Long is a Personal Trainer Course?

Personal Trainer coaching female client
A question on everyone’s minds when they think about becoming a Personal Trainer is ‘how long is a Personal Trainer course?’, ‘can I commit to the course?’, ‘when will the course take place?’.

So what is the answer?

Well actually it may surprise you, with The Training Room it may not take as long as you think.

We have options which see you graduate as a fully qualified level 3 Personal Trainer from as little as six weeks to six months.

Or, if that doesn’t suit you, why not check out our e-learning personal training courses where you’re in charge of your own learning, with flexibility to suit you.

Below we’ll discuss all of our personal training courses in more detail!

How Can You Become a Personal Trainer in Just Six Weeks?

At The Training Room we know that if you work hard you’ll reap big rewards, which is why we offer our full-time personal training course which sees you qualified in as little as six weeks!

Don’t be fooled by thinking that this course is quick and therefore must be the ‘easy’ option, there is no such thing.

On this course you will cover the Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing, followed by the Active IQ Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training. And if that didn’t sound like enough we also give you the opportunity to complete various CPD course modules covering nutrition, business, gym based boxing, studio cycling and more.

Yes, this course will challenge you but if you truly have the passion, then we can teach you the skills you need to be a successful Personal Trainer in just six weeks.

How Long is the Part-Time Personal Training Course?

Our part-time personal training courses are a great option for those who can’t manage to complete the training during the weeks.

The part-time course takes place over a six-month period consisting of 14 days’ worth of practicals and assessments, spread over 7 weekends.

The beauty of this course is that, if you do have current commitments such as full-time work, childcare or other activities which take up your valuable time, you are able to spread your learning, coursework and practicals over time to help fit the course into your schedule.

Of course, like our full-time courses, the part-time personal training course also ends in an official, globally recognised level 3 diploma in personal training.

Check out this option if you want to see how your weekends can help to transform your future!

How Long is the Online Personal Trainer Course?
