Choosing the Perfect Course: Setting Yourself Up for Success as a Personal Trainer

When it comes to pursuing a career as a personal trainer, selecting the right training course is of utmost importance. Rhea Miller shares her valuable tips to help you make an informed decision and lay a solid foundation for your career.

Consider Your Lifestyle and Course Format

Rhea advises finding a course that fits around your current lifestyle. Look for options that offer flexibility in terms of study hours and location. It's essential to consider whether a full-time, part-time, or online course is the best fit for your schedule and learning style.

Research Presentation and Assessment Methods

Before committing to a course, gather as much information as possible about how the content is presented and how you will be assessed. Rhea suggests checking if the course provides hands-on practical experience and if the assessments align with industry standards. Understanding the course structure and assessment methods will help you determine if it suits your learning preferences and goals.

Seek Support and Accreditation

Choosing a course that offers support and guidance throughout your journey is crucial. Rhea highlights the importance of selecting a reputable provider that is recognised by regulatory bodies like CIMSPA, both in the UK and globally. Accreditation ensures that your qualification will be respected and valued in the industry, wherever your career may take you.
