Frequently asked questions

Yes, absolutely 100%. All of our qualifications are internationally recognised and we have students travel from all around the world coming to us to get certified. Some of our successful past students are now highly successful PT’s in some places such as Canada, Australia, USA, Sweden, India and more! If you have any queries about using your qualifications abroad, please just ask a member of our team.

A workshop is a 1 day specialist intense education in a particular industry trend. It is only valid with at minimum, a Fitness Instruction qualification and is designed to give students the know how to design a class plan in that area, learn about the equipment and how to set up/ use it, adapt for any client contraindications in the class and progress for advanced clients for the ultimate workout. As workshops are based on constantly changing industry trends, it will always be an option for qualified PT’s to upskill with any of our workshop for a discounted nominal fee.

Yes. Fitness Instruction is the minimum entry requirement for any course to become a PT. Our specialist combination course (this course) is designed to give you every possible tool in your skillset so we do advise you to partake in all of it for optimum success. Some components however, such as workshops and even Group instruction are non-compulsory in becoming a PT. If you are not sure if you want to do Group Instruction I would say simply give it a try- you will be pleasantly surprised and our team have found it is the quickest way for a class to gel together and build confidence in their teaching ability.

There are generally 3 components making up the exams for each of the qualifications, they are; (i) 2 Multiple choice theory papers, (ii) A practical examination with an external client body and (iii) Case studies. Don’t worry if it all seem as lot. Our team of dedicated tutors will have you full of knowledge and confidence that nerves will not be an issue.

We are lucky that our students come prepared for hard work to our courses so our success rate is thankfully very high. Whilst the course is by no means a walkover – it is a step by step learning programme designed for optimum success. If in the unlikely event you are unsuccessful in any component of your exams, Image offer a repeat exam free of charge- we want you to succeed!

We have a minimum age of 17 years old in for our courses however if you are 16 we would be willing to set up an interview with you, sometimes over the phone, to see if you would be suitable for our courses.

Don’t despair, at Image Fitness Training we have options. We have staggered payment plan options to make it that bit easier. There are also numerous funding grant options available. To apply for funding, please give us a call. We will go through how it all works and provide to with the documentation and action plan to apply. For more information contact our team today.

We don’t require our students to be athletes or super fit. All we ask is that you are fit enough to partake in our classes and are medically sound to exercise. If you are unsure of any medical conditions and their impact on your ability in class- please contact our team today and we can assist you.

None! Our specialist course is designed to take students from absolute beginner level in the industry all the way to advanced PT. All we ask is that you have a keen interest in fitness and a willingness to learn- we will show you the rest!

Yes we have different options available. Pick up the phone and we will find a plan that works best for you.
