All online learners are required to complete 20 hours of training with a qualified REPs professional. 


To gain your Online Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification, you will be required to complete assessments. We pride ourselves in making our assessments just as fun and engaging as the learning process before them.

The Online Personal Trainer Course at OriGym is a Level 3 course and qualification. This means you must first have completed the Level 2 Qualification to get started. 

If you have not yet completed the Level 2 Personal Trainer qualification, but wish to reach Level 3 as soon as possible, OriGym offers both Levels 2 and 3 together in a package offer known as the Personal Training Diploma. This means you can hit the ground running at Level 3 once Level 2 is completed.  

You must also be aged 16 years or over to enrol in the course.
