Read more about what it takes to become a Personal Trainer and further information one our services down below to learn more:

Can you be a personal trainer without a certification?

It’s a common question. So, can you be a PT without a qualification? It's really risky business. Right now, there aren’t currently aren’t any compulsory national licensing requirements in relation to Personal Trainer required qualifications, it’s generally very frowned upon. This could change at any time.

Without being qualified you'll have a rough time finding work, especially from gyms and leisure centres. Even if you’re looking to go freelance or work online, clients will still want to know that their trainer has been thoroughly educated in the field in order to give them reasurrences they’re in good hands.

Also, you’re going to have a really hard time getting liability insurance without a Personal Training qualification. This insurance gives you some protection if a client gets hurt in one of your classes. And being sued isn’t exactly a fun time! Getting qualified relieves you of all these burdens that you definitely won’t want to get saddled down with!

Can I become a Personal Trainer by only learning online?

Sure! With us at The Training Room, we offer an entirely E-Learning option to suit your learning needs. You still receive the same quality of learning and course content, just you’ll be learning from your own home instead of a classroom.

So if you only want to learn online, our E-Learning only option takes between 3 to 6 months to complete on average. You’ll be able to complete modules at your own pace and schedule coursework around your commitments too.

We’ve taken great care to ensure you have a range of learning options with us at The Training Room. If you’d rather take up in-person classes, we do run classes in selected areas also.

Will a Personal Training course help me get job interviews?

With us, yes! You might actually find you get employed much quicker than you think! We can guarantee you an interview with leading UK health clubs. The Training Room has a lot of corporate partners in the Health and Fitness industry and they’re always on the lookout for new, emerging talent.

Job hunting can be a very daunting process when going it alone and we don’t want you to deal with any of those feelings - so once you’ve completed your course, you can count on us to support you on your journey.

How quickly can I become a personal trainer?

You’re probably thinking how long does it take to become a PT. Quite fast - but only if you’re willing to put the work in! For our full-time students, you can actually graduate in as little as 5 weeks from your start date. We’re not saying it’s going to be easy at all, but regardless, it can be achieved.

However, if full-time study isn’t going to fit in well with your lifestyle and juggling various commitments, our part-time course takes place over 6 weekend-long workshops and includes 11 days of practicals, assessments and includes home study. It’s a really compact but comprehensive avenue for getting your Level 3.
