Almost a year ago now from I was a student at Platinum’s Level 3 Personal Trainer course. I have built up a small steady client base which fits in well with my full time job. I learnt alot from the tutors on this course and found the workshops especially helpful. PT’ing not and easy career to choose and you must be prepared to invested in further specialist courses to cater to your niche.

Besides the hard work, sweat and tears… It’s definitely much more exciting and motivating than clock watching those hours away each day!

I have just complete my PTI diploma with Platinum last week and I really couldn’t rate them highly enough. I spent a lot of time time deciding on which course to undertake as I really didn’t just want a “certificate”. I wanted to learn and be the best trainer possible. I am so glad I made the right choice!
Naomi in particular has just been amazing and was always on hand with advice or to answer any questions! She is just so knowledgeable and I really looked forward to our meetings and will miss them  Thanks so much for all your help. The past 10 weeks have just flown by.

Ive completed my fitness instructor, personal trainer and exercise referral with platinum. I received heaps of support throughout my qualifications and I made full use of my tutors and their enthusiasm to help me. They ensure students are educated above and beyond the requirements to pass leaving me better equipped to pursue my new career. Ciaran is an asset to the company and his patience for my million questions a priceless quality. I look forward to furthering my knowledge with a level 4 course later this year.

Just completed my Level 3 Personal Trainer yesterday would like to say a big thanks to Team Platinum for sharing their knowledge and experiences within the Health and Fitness industry. This is still the start of my new journey but I have a lot more confidence in what lies ahead with the willing support still offered by everyone at Platinum. I would highly recommend these courses for anyone who are familiar with this industry and what it has to offer in our society. The courses where all well planned, structured and delivered…. look forward to gaining more knowledge next year with you all..Best Regards…

I have done a few courses with Platinum and found them very professional and the courses were fun and enjoyable but I learned so much more than I thought I would. There were problems on two of my courses that were beyond Platinum’s control but they sorted the issues out as quickly as they could and ensured that I had the best experience. I’ll be back for more!
