Just to go along with the last few days messages I’ve sent about our upcoming Level 3 Personal Trainer Qualification starting in September, I thought I’d just sum it all up with some frequently asked questions today, especially as we launch our August Livewell Programme for women 50+ next week 😃 this is specifically designed to increase your energy, improve your wellbeing and help ease aches and pains.
I’ve put together a list of the top FAQs here.
Q: Why choose this course?
A: Our aim in teaching you on this course is to prepare you to be as ready, prepared and confident to take your place in the fitness industry as a personal trainer as it is possible to be. This could be working as an employee with another organisation, as a self-employed practitioner setting up on your own or even as part of our team at Fruci Fit.
To do this, we have a number of added-value extras that most other companies are unable to provide.
Unlike many training providers, including further education colleges, Fruci Fit is an organisation that provides personal training and coaching to actual clients, delivering over 100 sessions per week. So you will be trained by a company at the heart of the fitness industry, who are offering personal training and coaching to real people.
We currently employ 3 personal trainers and we are always looking for talented newly-qualified coaches to join our team.
As part of the course, we will hold regular clinics attended by our clients where under supervision you can put your new skills to the test and gain some invaluable real-life experience.
Here you will get to practice on a range of ages and body types and receive feedback from the clients themselves.
Because we are part of the wellness industry we are also able to offer opportunities for work-experience and/or shadowing our personal trainers in order to extend the range of your experience and expertise while engaged on the course.
Q: What qualification will I receive at the end of the course and what will this allow me to do?
A: You’ll receive a nationally recognised qualification, validated by the international validating body, Thinktree Hub.
You will be learning from highly qualified professionals in a real-world environment.
Included in the enrollment fee is also your first years professional insurance so that the day you pass and get your certificate you can start practising.
Q: What happens if I can’t attend one of the dates listed?
A: Almost always, someone will have to miss one of the dates through no fault of their own and the course has been designed to accommodate this.
Because the course has competency-based assessments rather than set examinations, this allows for flexibility.
Q: How many hours of work extra will I have to study away from the course?
A: To a certain extent, this depends of course on the experience and previous knowledge of the student but we estimate on average around 4 hours a week.
Q: Who is the teacher for this certification?
A: I will be the teacher, along with Julie Cable, who’s also on the Fruci Fit team. We have one clear goal – to make sure you pass and are comfortable and confident delivering personal training sessions one to one or in a group.
I’ve worked in the Industry for 13 years, so you will be literally downloading my brain as I show you every inner working of how to coach and help people change and get results with fitness and nutrition.
Q: What are the entry requirements? Do I need a Level 2?
A: To join our personal training course you must be over 16 years old, physically able to do the work and have good communication skills. There is no upper age limit, mature students are especially welcome. No pre-qualifications are necessary, so you will not need a Level 2.
Q: What is the investment?
A: The cost of the course is £1495.00, which will include all your registration, tuition and insurance for the first year of your practice after qualifying.
Payment plans are available where you can spread the investment over 3 months to make it more affordable.
