Studying for a PT Qualification
throughout the COVID-19 Outbreak
COVID-19 outbreak, the country is facing one of its most difficult periods
since World War II. Many of us now find ourselves having to stay at home and
walk away from our usual daily routines. This is particularly frustrating to
fitness enthusiasts who are used to being active all the time.
outbreak, there is undoubtedly going to mean a lot of additional time at home
to spend on new things. Whilst some fitness enthusiasts may have to consider new
pastimes, others may indeed see this period as a good time to invest in
yourself by taking a Personal Trainer course.
Thanks to advancements
in educational technology it is now possible, if studying with the right
provider, to complete your learning at home during the COVID-19 outbreak. By using
state of the art online virtual learning environments, video recordings,
interactive quizzes, pod casts, online lectures and a whole other range of
media all learning outcomes of a PT qualification can be studied from home.

must also be live interaction in place, this should come from regular remote tutorials,
Skype or Zoom, live webinars and live chats. So no need to worry about social
distancing! With the right provider, this is all now possible.

assessments, whilst coursework can be easily sent over, there is also new, exam
board approved, technology that lets students sit theory assessments from home,
thus removing the need for any contact with another person, so keeping onside
with the social distancing guidelines!

closed, but these can be deferred to the end (since eight out of ten units of a
PT course are theory, this still gives students a lot to be getting on with).
Once gyms re open then students can focus on their practical exams by attending
in person or, if preferred, recording their exams in a local gyms.
provider with integrity would likely invite you to attend practical workshops retrospectively
so you don’t miss out on the all-important practical skills.
Its fair to say,
many expect a boom in the fitness industry once gyms reopen, so many are seeing
this period of isolation to be an ideal time to study and then be all ready to
take advantage of the boom once gyms open their doors again.
