Anatomy and physiology for exercise and health

These sessions are delivered over six days on our campus in Twickenham. You will also revise the topics you learnt via the E-learning resources.

The course is assessed via

Your practical exam will be a minimum of six weeks after the start of your course as you will need to take your client through a full six week training plan.

Candidates must also have good health, since the course involves a practical component. A sporting background is advantageous as well. This course has elements of E-learning combined with taught sessions. We understand that our student's learning styles and needs are different and offer E-learning to allow greater flexibility. Upon enrolment, and a minimum of 4 weeks before the taught sessions, students are given access to our interactive online course materials. This will allow students to study at a time and a pace to suit them. The level 3 personal training qualification is designed for those 18-years-old and over. Whilst candidates younger than 18 are not barred, it is likely they will experience difficulty in obtaining the personal liability insurance cover needed to work in this area. The Level 3 certificate is intensive, and therefore requires home-based study on theoretical aspects.
