Our online personal training qualification is designed into four study blocks. A student must complete a study block fully and meet all the submission and assessment requirements BEFORE they are able to move on to the next study block. A learner will enter a study block on a stipulated date and exit the study block when all conditions are met. Study blocks must be completed in a pre-defined order (1, 2, 3, 4).

All learning material, resources and assessments will be available through a Learner Management System (LMS) and the student will conduct all learning activities through the LMS. This qualification has a practical component. Students will be required to submit videos of their own demonstrations for assessment.
