FAQs

What is the time scale of the course?

Depends on you is the short answer. If you have more time on your hands, and can complete coursework and revision quicker, then you could do the course in a much quicker time. But please note that you will need a good understanding of each section to pass.  

Is the course industry recognised?

Of course. The course is REP’s, CIMPSA and OFQUAL recognised and regulated. It is also recognised in some countries around the world.

Where do I go for my assessments?

We come to you at your local gym for practical sessions or, arranged between you and your Tutor, you can go to them. For the coursework catch ups you will need somewhere fairly quiet to work through with your Tutor.  

What is covered in the course?

As well as the course units, above, we also cover additional content such as how to market and brand yourself, gain clients and ultimately run a successful business.

Is there additional support?

You will have a designated Tutor for the duration of the course plus access to the learner portal and our private, learner only, Facebook group. Neither the portal or Facebook group has a time restriction – we’re with you for as long as you need us. This is all included in the course fee unlike some other courses out there.
