The Estepona campus offers PT Diploma courses for both our 'course + accommodation' and 'course only' package options.
Estepona is ideally positioned for students situated locally in Andalucía or Gibraltar and is also closely accessible by both Málaga and Gibraltar Airports for students wishing to travel to Spain's sunny Costa del Sol from further afield. 
Transfers from Málaga Airport to the student apartments is included within the 'course + accommodation package' (terms and conditions apply).

Fitness Instructor Certificate


EPTI Fitness Instructor Course

The Fitness Instructor Certificate is the foundation of all certified fitness career-paths.

This fitness industry entry-level qualification is required to begin working as a certified gym instructor. Please note, it is NOT a Personal Trainer certification in its own right.

However, the Fitness Instructor Certificate is a pre-requisite to becoming certified as a Personal Trainer and is therefore included as an integral part of the EPTI Basic, Advanced and Master PT Diplomas.

The qualification is recognised in the UK by both CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs); and around the world by the International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPS) and provides eligibility for entry on to the UK Register of Exercise Professionals at level 2 (level 3 EREPS in Europe).

The course is delivered with a blended learning approach. It consists of online home study from the Active IQ e-learning platform, with support and guidance from EPTI tutors every step of the way.

It concludes with a 4-day practical course at your preferred training campus. During this time, you will receive practical coaching and support that exceeds industry requirements for this certificate and you will complete theoretical and practical assessments.


We offer an accommodation package that can be purchased by students wishing to study at either the Dénia or the Estepona campuses. Accommodation is a shared student apartment with your own private bedroom in a well appointed complex.

(Apartments are shared on a same-gender basis, unless otherwise requested.)

This option provides a focused learning atmosphere where you will bond and grow together with your classmates. After the timetabled hours, you will have time to socialise with your fellow PTs-in-training, enjoying the wonderful Spanish culture and climate!

The accommodation package also includes a complementary minibus transfer from Alicante Airport to the campus in Dénia, or from Málaga Airport to the apartments in Estepona for flights arriving before 13:00hrs on the scheduled arrival day of the practical course.

NB - The accommodation package is not available for courses in Malta.
