12: Once I qualify how do I get insured as a fitness trainer?

It is a legal requirement for all trainers to be insured when working in the fitness industry. There are several companies that offer public liability insurance for personal trainers. This can be found through a search on the internet. The yearly cover for trainers ranges from £50+ depending on the areas you wish to be insured in and the clients you will be training. Insurance cover ranges from £1 million to £10 million – the industry recommended cover is £5 million, the minimum required if you work within a gym as a personal trainer. Most insurance providers will get a certificate to you the same day electronically to cover your training. REPs offer insurance along with a REPs membership so if you want to get registered with REPs you can buy a package that includes the insurance for around £85. Liability cover as a personal trainer is really important to protect yourself when training clients. If you are caught training a client with no insurance and something happens to the client then it will be down to you alone to cover all the costs – including your legal fees. If you would like to know more about the different types of insurance and who we recommend then contact 01772 910950 / 0203 8418880 and speak to a course consultant today.

13: Can I start my home study before I receive my support call?

We aim to have your support call within 48 hours of receiving your payment so that you have a better understanding of the course and the content that you have received. However, some learners do start the course reading prior to the support call to get their course started sooner and start with the revision units, the sales advisor will advise you on what units these are on your request.

14: What is the purpose of the support call?

By having the support call with your Personal Support Tutor you will have a better insight into what you will need to do to meet the demands of the home study. Your Personal Support Tutor will also provide you with an Action Plan to aid your progress through the course and highlight how your Personal Support Package will work. This initial call will also enable you to establish a working relationship with your support tutor. Contact 01772 910950 or 0203 8418880 and speak to one of our course advisors about starting a course with Entire Training.
