How Long is a Personal Trainer Course?


A question on many people’s mind when they think about becoming a Personal Trainer is ‘how long is a Personal Trainer course?’, ‘can I commit to the course?’, and ‘can I become a Personal Trainer online?’.

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 five weeks.

Or, if that doesn’t suit you, why not check out our online Personal Trainer 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 Five 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 five 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 Level 4 and CPD courses covering Nutrition, Strength and Conditioning, gym based boxing, studio cycling and more.

Yes, this course will challenge you but if you truly have the passion and the ‘how long to become a Personal Trainer’ question bothers you, then we can teach you the skills you need to be a successful Personal Trainer in just five weeks.

How Long is the Part-Time Personal Training Course?

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

The part-time Personal Trainer course takes place over six weekends, consisting of 11 days of practicals and assessments.

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?

For those with really busy lifestyles where you can’t commit to specific weekdays or weekends, allow us to introduce our e-learning based Personal Training course.

What was that, we hear you ask ‘how can I become a Personal Trainer online?’

Well let us tell you!

You can gain a Personal Trainer certification online with the online Personal Training course offered by The Training Room. It can normally be completed in around three to six months, but the real appeal of this course is that you have up to three years to complete it!

Not only that, but as an online course you are completely in control of your start and finish dates, as well as the times that you choose to study!

Allowing you to work at your own pace, the e-learning platform gives you access to downloadable materials, access to The Training Room’s expert tutors, support and technical guidance, as well as much more.

Upon graduation you’ll be a fully certified, globally recognised Level 3 Personal Trainer, giving you the ability to work as a Personal Trainer anywhere in the world!
