Diploma in Personal Training Advanced package
The Diploma in Personal Training Advanced package includes all of the benefits of the Diploma in Personal Training Basic package, plus you will learn how to confidently instruct clients with specialist fitness equipment that can either be used at the gym or taken outdoors.
This course package provides graduates with all the skills to programme and deliver high quality gym-based training sessions. The Kettlebell and Suspension Training Instructor qualifications provide additional options for the personal trainer looking to build a fitness business beyond the commercial gym floor.
You will learn how to utilise and incorporate effective kettlebell and suspension training into your clients’ programming. The implementation of these training techniques provide the personal trainer with the ability to deliver flexible one to one training sessions at a gym/PT studio, or for use with mobile PT sessions at a client’s house, or even outdoors.
Upon graduation, you will therefore have a greater range of exercises in your PT toolkit, allowing you to select the best and most appropriate exercises for each client, based on their individual fitness journey and current fitness abilities.
The practical coaching that you will receive exceeds industry requirements for this certificate and together with EPTI’s unmatched level of personal student support, you can be sure to graduate confident and eager to begin your new career.
Graduates receive free lifetime access to a wide range of valuable and practical tools and resources to use in your work as a certified Personal Trainer.

The core components of the PT Diploma Advanced package includes the following national qualification framework qualifications:
- Diploma Practitioner in Personal Training (RQF level 3/ EQF & MQF level 4)
- Certificate in Planning and Delivering Gym Based Exercise (RQF level 2/ EQF & MQF level 3)
The PT Diploma Advanced package is then supplemented with the following CIMSPA endorsed CPD qualifications, recognised by the fitness industry:
- EPTI Certificate in Instructing Kettlebells (CIMSPA endorsed)
- EPTI Certificate in Instructing Suspension Training (CIMSPA endorsed)
(note: Our CIMSPA endorsed fitness CPD qualifications are not pegged to a national qualification framework)
Certification of each specific qualification included within the Advanced package are awarded separately.
We offer an accommodation package that can be purchased by students wishing to study at either the Dénia or the Estepona campuses in Spain. Accommodation is a shared student apartment (on a same-gender basis) with your own private bedroom. This option provides a focused learning atmosphere where you will bond and grow together with your classmates.
Also included is a complementary minibus transfer from Alicante Airport to the campus in Dénia, for flights arriving before 13:00hrs on the scheduled arrival day of the practical course; and from Dénia to Alicante Airport on the scheduled departure day of the practical course.
Note there is no complementary minibus transfer at the Estepona campus due to there being a cheap and regular bus route running from the airport to Estepona.
Minimum age of 18 years for the accommodation option.
NB - Accommodation package is not available in Malta.
If you already hold a CIMSPA recognised Fitness Instructor or Gym Instructor certificate, you can upgrade onto the Diploma in Personal Training Advanced package without having to redo the Fitness Instructor/ Gym Instructor qualification again.
Please contact one of the EPTI team to provide proof of your certification prior to purchase, to confirm that you are eligible for the 6 day Diploma in Personal Training Advanced upgrade package.
