Premier Training Diploma in Personal Training

Premier Training International

Premier Training International’s most popular course is the coveted Diploma in Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy. This qualification is regarded by many fitness professionals as the gold standard for entry into the fitness industry.

Diploma in Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy

The Diploma in Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy is made up of 3 distinct modules that integrate the new National Occupational Standards. This qualification can be achieved either by attending a fulltime intensive course held over 12 weeks or a part-time course held over approximately 12 months, though this is only available at selected venues. Each module may be attended separately either on a full-time or part-time basis.

The Diploma is designed to challenge, inspire and to develop the personal qualities and practical skills required for successful personal training and sports massage therapy. The 3 modules that make up the Diploma in Personal Training are accredited by Active IQ, a Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) approved Awarding Body.
