IPTA PERSONAL TRAINER COURSE
The Personal Trainer course at IPTA is designed to shape the Personal Trainers of tomorrow, true fitness professionals, with knowledge and competence that go beyond current industry standards.
Our students learn to help various types of clients, and to tailor their approach and training to each client’s specific needs and goals.
A solid foundation in exercise science and a critical mindset allows our students to evaluate new trends and claims about fitness and health. They can therefore stay up to date on the latest findings, while at the same time separating facts from fiction. This makes our PT students unique and gives them a competitive edge in the fitness industry.
Upon graduation, our students are equipped with everything they need to be successful as personal trainers, wherever they go, and whether they choose to be employed or independent.
WHY BECOME A PERSONAL TRAINER?
Today, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of exercise for our health and well-being. But knowing exercise is important is not enough to get people started. There could be many obstacles on the way, lack of knowledge or motivation for example. Most people need some help.
Skilled trainers can often make a big difference here, and what often starts as a timid attempt to get in shape may lead to a total life-style change. Hiring a personal trainer is therefore becoming increasingly common and good trainers are in demand.
If you choose to become a Personal Trainer, you are therefore choosing a profession with a bright future. You are also choosing a profession that is among the most meaningful and rewarding there is.
A blended learning approach is used at IPTA to give students the best of both worlds: the flexibility of online education and the quality of face-to-face
The IPTA Personal Trainer course is totally 16 weeks long. The PT course starts with an intensive on-site part in Marbella (14 days), focusing on experiential and hands-on learning. Real-life scenarios are practiced through role play sessions, and students receive valuable feedback from tutors, so they can refine their skills. After the on-site part, the course continues with online studies (14 weeks), focusing on the theoretical aspects of the profession.
There are two practical exams during the onsite part and a theoretical exam at the end of the course.
