Not only that, but you will also be learning from a team of Personal Trainers who have achieved great success in their careers and will provide you with an insight into their personal experiences and give you advice.

Each unit can be purchased individually, giving you the freedom to choose the topics you want to learn.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives.
