New improved course!

Our course is unique because we deliver the course content in three different ways. We believe that the combination of online classes – recording, online live and face-to-face meetings with a trainer in the club is the best way to acquire all the knowledge necessary to pass the international exam and receive the Personal Trainer diploma. 

Online classes consist of recordings and materials in PDF form designed for you to acquire knowledge at your own pace. These resources are accessible from the moment you pay for the course until you receive certification confirming your qualifications.

Live online classes conducted through Zoom are also available in the Google Classroom for you to review and reference for up to 6 months.

The last type of classes involves practical sessions held at a fitness club in your location. If our course is not available in your area, you can opt for online live sessions.

The course comprises 20 modules. Upon completion of all modules and successful completion of the theoretical and practical exams, you will receive international confirmation of certification as a personal trainer. Additionally, you can obtain 12 additional CPD certificates.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

The PFS PERSONAL TRAINER is the most comprehensive course on the Irish market. Our teaching programme is built on the foundation of the experience and research of our tutors, who have been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years. It is created to help health and fitness professionals deliver tailored programmes that their future clients will require to live a healthy lifestyle.

During the course not only will you gather the knowledge that enables you to train people one to one, but you will also learn many different training techniques and principles of assisting your clients with professionalism.

A personal trainer’s role includes designing, implementing and evaluating exercise/physical activity programmes for apparently healthy and low-risk adult populations by collecting and analysing client information to ensure the effectiveness and safety of personal exercise programmes. A personal trainer should also actively encourage potential clients/members to participate in and adhere to regular exercise/physical activity programmes, employing appropriate motivational strategies to achieve this.
