With content written and delivered by some of the best doctors, physiotherapists, personal trainers, dietitians and nutritionists, this is the most advanced online personal training course in the industry.
No job role is more synonymous with health and fitness than that of the personal trainer. The influence and importance of PTs is not just limited to the life-changing impact they have on clients they train either. It’s estimated the PT sector makes up around 13% of the wider health and fitness industry and gross revenues from personal training exceed £650m a year.
If you have your heart set on becoming a qualified personal trainer and joining the ranks of the fitness elite, there are several options available to you.
Traditionally, blended and full-time face-to-face learning were the only two credible options. Now, with the arrival of our Level 3 online personal trainer course, there’s a new, game-changing way to launch your career as a PT.
This course can be completed from wherever you are in the world and it’s structured in a way that lets you tackle things at your own pace. It’s the perfect option if time or travel is a factor and you have personal or professional commitments need to work around.
All the world-class learning resources you need will be at your fingertips. These include access to our cutting-edge online platform LES, the Learner Engagement System, bespoke training manuals, video lectures, exercise demonstrations and more.
Your theory exams are taken online while your practical assessment is filmed from the comfort and familiarity of your local gym. It really is a seamless and accessible experience through and through.
Our online personal trainer course is CIMSPA endorsed and YMCA Awards accredited. It’s also recognised by all international employers which provides tremendous scope and opportunity for your personal training career.
Personal trainers are recognised as experts in their fields. They have finely-tuned knowledge and specialist skills that enable them to transform the lives of clients.
Gaining this knowledge and honing these skills isn’t something that happens overnight. It requires hard work, commitment and dedication. You won’t be alone in this journey as your dedicated Learner Support Tutor will on hand via phone and email to guide you every step of the way.
Here’s a brief overview of what you’ll encounter with our online personal trainer course:
You’ll also gain a firm grasp of how to effectively set goals for your clients, develop key consultation and motivational skills and be able to perform functional fitness assessments.
Our online personal training course has been designed from the ground up to give you the best chance of passing first time. Theory exams can be completed online and booked at a time and day that’s suitable for you.
For your practical assessments, you’ll need to film yourself in a variety of gym-based scenarios, essentially demonstrating how you would perform as a PT in the real world.
Here’s a brief overview of the theoretical and practical ways you’ll be expected to demonstrate your personal training knowledge and skills:
In order to start your personal training journey, you’ll need to already hold a recognised Level 2 Gym Instructor or a Level 2 Online Gym Instructor qualification.
It would also be beneficial if you already know your way around the gym floor and you’ve had previous experience of using resistance and cardiovascular machines, as well as free weights.
Once you’ve qualified as a personal trainer the journey is far from over. Many PTs look for ways to better serve their existing clients and greatly expand the scope of those they can work with.

I've had a nice time and met some very nice people during this course and I would recommend it to anyone interested. The online learning and tutor were a great help so even though English is not my mother tongue, which made it sometimes a little bit more complicated, I managed to finish my course successfully. I'm glad that I chose HFE.
Lindsay was my tutor who literally was there for me at any given moment to help me when I needed it, even calling to check all was ok if she hadn’t heard from me, which just shows they really care about student!
I just enrolled with HFE by recommendation of a friend to do the ETM course. All went very quickly and very professionally. Ruth Baxendale, the lady who enrolled me was very nice and I'm looking forward to do my course with HFE.
Everyone was super friendly. The instructor was fantastic. Both weekends were amazing.
