If you don’t understand any part of these terms and conditions and want to talk to Premier about it, or if you require further details, please contact Premier’s Customer Service Team by:
The Courses are scientifically based learning programmes for personal trainers. Candidates who successfully complete the Courses are awarded certification credentials that are widely recognised in the U.S. and other countries. There are three courses: NASM’s Certified Personal Trainer (“NASM-CPT”); Performance Enhancement Specialization (“PES”) and Corrective Exercise Specialisation (“CES”) (the PES and CES together are referred to as “Advanced Specializations”). NASM-CPT is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (“NCCA)”, the leading accreditor for personal trainer programs in the U.S, and includes psychometrically designed examination. The Courses, however, are not recognised by the Registry of Exercise Professionals (“REP”), which is the oversight body for accrediting training programs in the U.K. Premier recommend the Courses to personal trainers that have been qualified in the U.K. as an opportunity to explore further the science behind exercise and developing exercise programmes and to obtain certification credentials that lead the industry outside of the U.K.
The Courses are delivered directly through Premier’s website https://www.premierglobal.co.uk/ through a portal that gives you direct access to the Courses which are delivered from NASM’s website https://nasm.org/.
