    Personal trainer courses? 16th Jul 17 at 8:58 PM
    Hi guys after some advice here guys. This has always been an interest of mine but something I always put off due to the costs really.

    I've studied with the OU in the past and because of my low income I got a course grant. Does such a thing exist with personal training courses?

    You have to have a gym instructor qualification before progressing to the level 3 PT. I would not recommend doing a PT course online. There is too much work involved and to do both your practical and your theory for your level 3 online would be a hard ask.

    You cant be a PT without sitting a formal assessment, Im sure there are some companies that would let you submit your assessment online.

    There are companies that will offer the level 3 course plus gym level 2 for just over £1000 which is a decent price.

    This is the cheapest Ive seen anything, special offer, all online. Not the way I did it or would do it. But some people do

    Best of luck
