Active IQ is the awarding body for our qualifications. They are accredited and approved by REPS and ICREPS worldwide. The qualifications are delivered via a blending learning approach. The online e-Learning platform allows students to study and learn in comfort at their own pace.
Each student is assigned a support tutor who is available to offer guidance and support towards the study content and the completion of coursework assignments. Students are then required to attend the EPTI training campus in Denia, Spain.
The training campus consists of self-catering apartments located close to the gym training facility and 400m from our outdoor PT beach training zone.
During this residential phase of the course, our experienced team of PTs/tutors are on hand to develop and progress the students’ practical delivery skills so that upon completion, all graduates are comfortably able to programme and deliver effective personal training sessions for their clients.
Students must demonstrate their knowledge and skills via theory exams and observed practical assessments to obtain certification. The courses on offer through EPTI are as follows:
- EPTI Fitness Instructor
- EPTI Personal Trainer
- EPTI Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma
- EPTI Master Personal Trainer Diploma
(All course prices include accommodation and airport transfers).
EPTI Fitness Instructor course
This course provides an entry into the fitness industry and is necessary before a fitness professional may progress and gain further specialised qualifications. The course consists of the Level 2 Active IQ Fitness Instructor (Gym) qualification and requires a 4 day residential course with us at our training campus in Spain, once you have completed the online learning and coursework.

EPTI Basic Personal Trainer Diploma
The EPTI Personal Trainer course covers the Active IQ Level 2 Fitness Instructor (which is a mandatory part of the PT qualification); Active IQ Level 3 Personal Training; and an EPTI qualification in PT Padwork. Upon completion of the online learning, the residential phase of the course consists of 8 training days with our team based in the classroom, gym and beach.
This is the most basic option of our personal training courses and does not provide any additional specialist fitness qualifications. If you are already a Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to complete the Fitness Instructor qualification, nor attend the first 4 days of the residential course.

EPTI Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma
Further to the qualifications covered in the Personal Training course, the Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma provides students with additional (and in our opinion essential) skills and Active IQ Level 2 qualifications in Circuit Class Instruction and Kettlebell Instruction. All our Advanced Personal Training students are enrolled onto EPTI’s own PT Business Supremacy Course when they graduate from the practical course in Spain.
The additional qualifications gained on this course equip graduates with the tools and abilities to hold group personal training sessions mobile personal training and bootcamp training. The residential phase of this course is 10 training days. Upon completion of the course, all students are enrolled onto the EPTI PT business start-up course. If you are already a Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to complete the Fitness Instructor qualification, nor attend the first 4 days of the residential course.

EPTI MASTER PERSONAL TRAINER DIPLOMA
The Master Personal Trainer Diploma course gives students the most comprehensive tuition for their new personal training career. It builds on the Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma and in addition, students complete the Active IQ Level 2 Award in Suspended Movement Training (TRX) and the EFR certificate in CPR & First Aid. The residential phase of this course is 12 training days.
As with all of our personal training diploma courses, all students are enrolled onto the EPTI PT business start-up course once you graduate from the practical course. If you are already a Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to complete the Fitness Instructor qualification, nor attend the first 4 days of the residential course.

CONTINUAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) COURSES
If you are an existing fitness professional and qualified to at least REPS level 2 Fitness Instructor (Gym) then you may wish to obtain further qualifications to increase both your existing skills and the potential to earn more money.
In order to remain current with REPS/ ICREPS, fitness professionals are required to maintain and evidence their CPD (24 points every 2 years). Each of our CPD courses are at level 2 and offer 16 CPD points and are awarded by Active IQ and accredited by REPS/ ICREPS.
All our CPD practical courses are delivered via blended learning. Online theory & coursework followed by just 1 day practical training at our training campus in Denia.
The CPD courses available are as follows:
CPR AND FIRST AID COURSE
To work as a Personal Trainer in Europe and the UK, you are required to hold a current and relevant first aid certificate and public liability insurance. You cannot obtain insurance without first obtaining a recognised first aid qualification. The CPR & First Aid skills course is taught over 1 full day on the middle “free” weekend of the Advanced PT Diploma.
The course is delivered at our training campus by an external, specialised first aid training company. If you do not have a current first aid certificate, then this provides you the perfect opportunity to obtain one of the key skills and qualifications necessary for becoming a personal trainer, while you are already onsite with the residential course and in the frame of mind and the time availability to progress your education. The course is offered to you as an optional “bolt on” extra and is not compulsory in order to study for any of our fitness courses.
