Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma


Advanced Personal Trainer

Above and beyond the average personal training qualification!

The Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma includes all of the benefits of our Basic PT Diploma, plus you will learn how to confidently instruct group training sessions, lead effective and fun Circuits classes and become a qualified Kettlebells Instructor.

No previous fitness qualifications are required to enrol on this course - the Advanced PT Diploma includes the mandatory Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification (EQF Level 3), which serves as the foundation and entry-point to the personal training course. However, some personal gym experience is recommended.

Both the Circuits Instructor and the Kettlebells Instructor qualifications are very important for today’s personal trainer. Functional fitness, group bootcamps, and circuit-style training are all extremely popular and effective for clients, and massively increase your earning potential as a professional personal trainer.

The Diploma delivery is via 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 10-day practical course at your preferred training campus.

You have the choice of training at any one of our Mediterranean training campus locations in Dénia, Estepona or Malta. Combination course and accommodation packages are available at our Dénia and Estepona campus locations (see below for more details).

During this time, you will receive practical coaching that exceeds industry requirements for this certificate, and complete the theoretical and practical assessments, and with EPTI’s unmatched level of personal support.

You will also learn how to provide effective group training in circuits and boot camps, how to utilise and incorporate effective kettlebell and boxing pad-work into your clients’ programming. Upon graduation, you will therefore have the ability to train people both one-to-one and in small groups, using a wide variety of specialist strength and conditioning equipment and techniques.

During the course, we offer all PT Diploma students the opportunity to deliver personal training sessions in a supervised PT clinic setting. Our students find this an invaluable experience that boosts their confidence, and provides the opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills with members of the public.

Included in the Advanced Diploma is free lifetime access to a wide range of valuable and practical tools and resources to use in your work as a certified Personal Trainer.

In addition, upon graduation you will receive complementary access to EPTI’s proven PT business start-up course – PT Business Supremacy. This course provides the guidance to show you exactly how to build a successful business as a newly certified fitness professional, supplementing all the skills and knowledge learned during the Diploma with online marketing skills and the benefit of the EPTI coaching team’s decades of experience.

The qualifications are recognised in the UK by both CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs); and around the world by the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals (ICREPS) and provides eligibility for entry on to the Register of Exercise Professionals at level 3 (level 4 EREPS in Europe).


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.
