The Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training (Dip.FIPT) is Premier’s most popular course. Upon successful completion of this Diploma you will be established as an authority in the field of health and fitness – and you will be able to either apply immediately for work as a personal trainer or set yourself up on a self-employed basis. Within the industry, this is recognised as a gold standard training course.
The Level 3 Diploma is a combination of two courses – Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing and Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training. When the Premier Dip.FIPT is completed, students will receive both the ActiveIQ Level 3 in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training and an Active IQ Level 2 Diploma in Health and Fitness.
