This includes being able to offer one-to-one training, fitness assessments, nutritional advice and progressive programming which is specific to the individual needs of a client.

The qualification is broken down into the following units:
The course is assessed through theory assessments, written questions, case studies and observation. It is mandatory that candidates are already qualified at level 2 (gym instructor) to achieve this qualification. On completion candidates will be awarded a CYQ Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training which will also allow them to gain entry onto The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) at level 3.
If candidates prefer, they can choose to complete this course in stages, the anatomy and physiology and the nutrition units can be done prior to attending the rest of the course as home study, this then allows the candidate to concentrate on the practical element of the course and the personal training case study.
