As with our Level 2 Fitness Instructor course, once you’re signed up all students get access to all theory course modules via the website and app, allowing you to learn on the go and work around your busy lifestyle.

How it Works

As soon as you enrol onto the course, you’ll be given your own unique account that will enable you to access all the online theory content either through our Academy HQ App or through the Academy on our website.
