The European Personal Training Institute has fitness courses tailored to everybody’s needs. They range from the industry entry level – Level 2 (EQF Level 3) Fitness Instructor qualification, which upon completion allows individuals to begin working within the fitness industry; through to the Level 3 (EQF Level 4) Personal Trainer Certificate, Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma and Master Personal Trainer Diploma. We also provide specialist fitness CPD courses that empower our students with additional training tools and flexibility, depending on their requirements.
Active IQ is the awarding body for our fitness qualifications. They are recognised by CIMSPA and REPS in the UK and worldwide through ICREPS. 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 theory study content and the completion of coursework assignments. Students are then required to attend a practical and assessment course at one of our specialist training facilities to hone their exercise instruction and delivery skills.
Our training campus in Dénia, Spain offers an additional international student residential course package which consists of minibus transfer between Alicante airport and campus (t&c apply); and a private bedroom in a self-catering apartment located close to the gym training facility and 400m from our outdoor PT beach training zone.
Students also have the option of choosing the Dénia campus course on a non-residential basis. We also have non-residential training campus sites at Estepona, Spain and San Gwann, Malta.
During the practical skills and assessment 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 Basic Personal Trainer
- EPTI Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma
- EPTI Master Personal Trainer Diploma
Read the short course descriptions below to see which course would suit you best:
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 REPS Level 2 (EQF Level 3) Active IQ Fitness Instructor (Gym) qualification and requires a 4 day course with us at our one of our training campuses, 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); REPS Level 3 (EQF Level 4) Active IQ Personal Training; and an EPTI qualification in PT Padwork. Upon completion of the online learning, the practical 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 all our Personal Training Diplomas and does not provide any additional specialist fitness qualifications. If you are already a REPS Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to undertake the Fitness Instructor qualification again, nor attend the first 4 days of the practical course (subject to skills and qualification check with the Active IQ).

EPTI Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma
Further to the qualifications covered in the Basic Personal Training Diploma, the Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma provides students with additional (and in our opinion essential) skills and REPS Level 2 (EQF Level 3) Active IQ 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.
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 practical 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 REPS Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to complete the Fitness Instructor qualification again, nor attend the first 4 days of the practical course (subject to skills and qualification check with the Active IQ).

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 REPS Level 2 (EQF Level 3) Active IQ Award in Suspended Movement Training (TRX) and the EFR certificate in CPR & First Aid. The practical 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 REPS Level 2 qualified gym instructor, then you do not need to complete the Fitness Instructor qualification again, nor attend the first 4 days of the residential course (subject to skills and qualification check with the Active IQ).

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 (REPS 24 points every 2 years; CIMSPA 10 points every year). Each of our CPD courses are at level 2 and offer 16 REPS CPD/ 10 CIMSPA CPD points each.
All of our CPD fitness courses are awarded by Active IQ and recognised by CIMSPA and REPS in the UK; and worldwide via ICREPS. They are delivered via blended learning. Online theory & coursework followed by just 1 day practical training at each of our training facilities.
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.
