Course Details

How Do I Start?

When you enrol on the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training you will receive your joining instructions via email giving you access to your learning resources.

The Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training resources is divided into unit order providing you with the relevant manuals, worksheets, case study documents, mock exams and knowledge checkers required to help you complete your learning and prepare for your workshop/assessment days.

Pre-workshop Learning

It is recommended that you complete and email your knowledge based worksheets to us before you attend the personal trainer workshop dates.

They include: 

  • Unit 3: Programming Personal Training with Clients

The submission of any work is not final and can be amended once marked by one of the CMS team and feedback was given. However, we insist that all work submitted is fully completed to a high level prior to submission.

  • Unit 2 Applying the Principles of Nutrition to a Physical Activity programme

The exams are sat on day 6 and 7of the 8-day workshop (day 1 and 2 if you are attending the 3-day option). If you refer an exam you can book to re-sit the exam on one of our planned re-sit days. You can re-sit an exam as many times as needed, however CMS Fitness Courses has a responsibility to ensure that teaching and learning occur in between each exam to promote learner development and quality of delivery. 

Workshop Attendance

In addition, you are expected to provide your own refreshments. For the respect of other users of our venues, please bring a gym towel.

Throughout the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training workshop days our experienced tutors will support you to ensure your full participation and give guidance on what work needs to be completed and by when, to ensure that you can successfully complete the workshop.
