FAQs

From learning resources to career options, we've answered the most frequently asked questions about our personal training courses and qualifications.

How do I become a personal trainer?

In order to enrol on the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, you first need to have theLevel 2 Gym Instructor Certificate.

Don't worry if you don't have one at the moment because we offer great packages that combine both Level 2 and Level 3. These packages also come with exclusive extras such as PT Business Mastery from one of the world's most-renowned personal trainers, Matt Roberts, and Supplements. Simplified from Awesome Supplement's founder Ben Coomber.

Aside from qualifications, it would be beneficial if you have experience of using gym-based equipment. For more information about what it takes to become a personal trainer, contact our Careers team or read our extensive career guide.

What are my payment options?

We've made it as easy as possible for you to book your ideal personal trainer course or package.

If you're keen to get everything sorted up front, we'll give you a 5% discount if you pay for your course or package in full.

We have two options available if you're looking to spend the cost, a 6-month and 12-month payment plan. With these two options, you can secure your place for as little as £100 if you're booking a course and £250 if you're booking a package.

Select courses and packages have also been military approved. If you're serving personnel or a service leaver, contact our Careers Team for more information about the MOD's Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELCAS).

Do you run personal trainer courses near me?

To give you maximum choice and flexibility when it comes to your studies, we deliver our gym instructor and personal training courses nationwide and we use some of the country’s best-equipped health and fitness facilities including David Lloyd, Bannatyne and Village Hotels.

We have venues across England, Scotland and Wales and our most popular locations include London, Manchester, Cardiff, York, Glasgow and Nottingham.

A full list of venues, information about facilities and accessibility, as well as travel directions can be found here.

What resources are available while I study?

HFE students, as standard, get access to a range of learner resources and support systems that can be utilised throughout their studies and beyond.

It all starts with your personalised support tutor who is only ever a phone call or email away. As part of your personal training studies, you'll also receive bespoke print and digital manuals, via the HFE app.

As our courses utilise the blended learning, the online portal is where you'll complete the majority of your home study learning. Within LES, the Learner Engagement System, you'll find an extensive range of mock tests and quizzes, and online video lectures.

How long will it take to get qualified as a personal trainer?

There is no definitive answer as each learner will approach their studies at a different pace. What's important to note is that the journey to become more is one that can not be rushed.

For the Level 2 Gym Instructor Certificate, students usually take three months and this includes a period of home study and two sets of practical weekends

For Level 3 Personal Training, most learners take between four and five months. Like gym, this includes a period of home study and for this specific course, there are four practical weekends to attend. As soon as your exams and assessments are complete, you'll be free to seek employment as a personal trainer.

Do you offer guaranteed interviews?

The simple answer is no. Time and time again we've heard of other training providers guaranteeing interviews and jobs that simply turn out to be self-employed positions. These trainers can end up struggling to make ends meet because they're paying a large weekly or monthly rent to work in a club before they've even secured their first client.

Instead, we've created CV Connect, a game-changing way to connect graduates with employers. As soon as an HFE student completes their course, they'll instantly unlock the ability to upload their CV, search for employers in their area and apply direct. There are no middle-men and no recruit,ent agencies, just real opportunities for qualified fitness professionals.

  • Rating: 4 out of 5

    I’ve completed 3 courses now with HFE, and honestly, the support and content are excellent. They provide content for all methods of learning, so everyone has the best chance to learn in the way that suits them. Courses are fun and challenging, but they equip you for working in the industry really well!
