Students who wish to enrol onto a University course would usually need to ensure they have successfully gained at least a grade C in GCSE Maths and English. Subsequently, when completing the UCAS form, applicants need to highlight achievement of the Awarding Organisation Active IQ (AIQ) fitness qualification in their personal statement. This is because AIQ qualifications have been matched with occupational standards set by the QCA (Qualifications Curriculum Authority), an organisation more familiar to UCAS than Premier Global NASM.

Salaries within this industry vary greatly. Fitness Instructors employed at one of the more recognised health and fitness clubs can expect to receive a salary starting anywhere between £13,000 – £18,000 per year. For instructors who have more advanced fitness training skills, including the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, earnings will potentially be enhanced by an extra £3,000 – £10,000 per annum.

On completion of our courses many students follow a self-employed career path. In this situation they could charge anything starting from £25 per hour and up to £70 per hour depending upon location. A successful self-employed personal trainer can earn well in advance of £35,000 per year. For Sports Massage, charges range from £15 – £60 per treatment. Premier helps all students find suitable employment opportunities through our Recruitment Team.

Your Premier Global NASM Diploma course provides you an enrollment duration for both the exam and content of 180 days from the date of purchase or enrollment key activation.

The course follows a suggested schedule that optimizes the ability to learn and recall the material on the exam/ assessments, and that is the schedule your Tutor will follow to facilitate the discussion questions and provide feedback within the course. However, you can work ahead in all areas, except for the discussion questions that are each opened at the start of their scheduled week. You can still see the questions and review the content; you just cannot post to the discussion forum until it has been opened by a Success Coach.

The course follows a suggested schedule to maximize the learning process, and the course Tutor follows a grading schedule within the course to assist you with feedback, which includes 4 weeks after the 10 week program timeframe to review late assignments. You do have access to the course and materials for 180 days from your time of purchase or enrolment key activation, but take caution if you fall behind, as breaking from the suggested schedule limits participation in the group discussions and timely information from the Tutors to assist you in best preparing for the Assessments and Exams. If you find yourself behind by more than 4 weeks you will want to reach out to the Success Coach team for by phone at 0333 400 0354 or by email at
