  • FAE offers the Level 3 & Level 4 Awards in Fitness Instruction and Personal Training through a hybrid learning delivery method, as well as workshops lasting either 12 or 15 days. Of the 12 workshop days, 5 are dedicated to the Level 3 fitness instructing component of the qualification, and 7 focus on the Level 4 personal training component.

  • Workshop days are delivered every other Saturday with a new course starting every 6-8 months. With our commitment to the flexibility of delivery, you can spread your learning time frame over a period of 8 to 12 months.

  • Whichever study method you choose you are supported throughout your program via exceptional tutor support, an E-learning portal, and other study materials.

  • You will undertake three primary sections and six modules to achieve the Level 3 & Level 4 Awards in Fitness Instruction and Personal Training qualifications

  • For the FAE Level 3 & Level 4 Awards in Fitness Instruction and Personal Training, learners can attend between 12, and 15 workshop days.

  • The 12 workshop day option requires attendance to present at least 80% of the GLH. This is to ensure that all assessments can be completed. If you choose to attend additional workshop days, these days would be 100% learning days where you would review your understanding and practice the application under the guidance of an experienced tutor.

  • Whether you choose to attend 12 or 15 workshop days in order to achieve your Level 3 & Level 4 Awards in Fitness Instruction and Personal Training, these dates do not have to be attended as part of the same cohort. For example, those learners wishing to attend all workshop days in quick succession could attend the full days of a specific cohort. Another learner may wish to space their learning out or be unable to attend a given date, therefore they could spread their attendance between 2, 3 or more cohorts.

  • We would advise learners to leave themselves sufficient time in order to complete suitable learning before attending workshop days. This helps learners maximise the learning benefit and chances of a successful assessment. Your tutor would advise you on how best to do this.

  • If you are unsure which option is best for you, feel free to call us on WhatsApp +356 79319555 and we can discuss your options with you. If you opt to attend 12 workshop days but then prefer to attend all 15 or even switch to 100% online learning, this is not a problem, simply contact your tutor and we will arrange the rest.

  • Prior to, during, and after the personal training course, you will be supported by a highly qualified and experienced tutor. As a minimum, all personal training qualification learners are supported via mandatory 1 on 1 live webinars with your tutor on a monthly basis. During these visits learning activities are reviewed and new ones are agreed upon with suitable support provided. As all learners have their own circumstances additional webinars, phone, and email support are provided to learners when necessary.

The Level 3 Certificate in Fitness Instructing workshop is delivered over Five days. The workshops are delivered every other Saturday and are structured so you can attend all 5 days and match your workshop dates over a 4-month period, depending on your personal situation and preferred time frame.

Before attending your Level 3 Fitness Instructor workshop, we recommend completing the three primary sections of the Fitness Assistant online learning to cover the more theoretical units and content of the course. Typically, you should have submitted and passed all your assessments for:

ย 

  • How the body works
  • How to adopt an active healthy lifestyle
  • How to ensure a safe,clean, and friendly environment
  • Anatomy & Physiology for Health and Fitness

  • Fitness Instructor

  • Nutrition for Health and Fitness

  • Business skills for Personal Training

  • Consultation, Testing and Programme Design

  • Exercise Instruction for Personal Training

By completing these units prior to your workshop attendance, you will have completed a majority of the theoretical content of your level 3 Fitness instructor qualification and attained four out of five of your units.

When you attend the Level 3 Fitness Instructor workshop, the days predominantly focus on the practical aspects of your qualification, as well as providing opportunities to embed some of the theoretical content that you have previously learned.

Post Workshop Days

After attending the workshop days, your FAE tutor will support you in completing the final component, which consists of a 15-40 hour internship. Your options are numerous and may include working as an online personal trainer, a self-employed freelance personal trainer, or an employed personal trainer at a facility of your choice.

ย 

The career options available following the completion of your Level 3 & Level 4 Awards in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training donโ€™t just stop there. With FAE there are options to progress onto other Level 4 and higher qualifications such as the Level 4 Diploma in Sports Massage, the Level 4 Diploma in Exercise Referral , and eventually become a Level 5 Specialist in Weight Management, Obesity,Nutrition,Strength & Conditioning and Diabetes.

ย

Youโ€™ll get access to the following:

  • A variety of high-quality study materials.

    Access to an online learning platform featuring extensive content that has been developed expressly for each individual training course unit.

  • Online Learning

    You will have the option to check your understanding of each unit using a knowledge checker. Each question in the knowledge checker has been carefully selected from a very large question bank. These might be true or false, multiple choice, fill in the blank, mark the words or any number of other types of questions!

  • Exercise library

    You will have an access to our exercise library with over 700 different exercises. Whether you're a beginning exerciser who needs help getting started or someone who wants to add some spice to your fitness routine, our FAE Exercise Library offers a variety of movements to choose from. Browse through total-body exercises or movements that target more specific areas of the body. Each comes with a detailed description and photos to help ensure proper form.

Workshop Days


You are required to go to a workshop as part of the curriculum for your personal training course. On each of these days, there will be a total of four sessions: two in the morning and two in the afternoon. A review of previously acquired knowledge is followed immediately by an exercise that puts that information to use during each and every session. You will have the opportunity to have open conversations in an atmosphere that is both encouraging and friendly during these sessions, which are led by our knowledgeable personal trainers.

You may check out the reviews that people have left about our personal training workshop days on Google. There have been a lot of favorable comments.

Recorded Submissions

We strongly encourage you to provide your own recordings of your approach, delivery, and consulting styles so that we can better support online and distant learning. This can be accomplished by providing your instructor with a link to a recording of you speaking, which they will then listen to and provide you with valuable feedback on. This provides you with the additional benefit of ongoing support between the days of your personal training course, allowing you to ensure that you are continuing to develop and use your newly acquired abilities.

This works both ways; you may also expect your personal training course tutor to deliver recorded demonstrations and further explanations in the same way, depending on the circumstances.

Example Pro-formaโ€™s

Worksheets, case studies, and assignments will need to be turned in at various stages throughout the Level 4 Personal Training course that you are taking. We realise that you may not be familiar with this procedure, so in order to help you have a better grasp of what is expected of you, we will provide you with some examples of completed proformas.
