The Nordic Personal Trainer Certificate (NPTC) is an innovative, comprehensive course created as an effective online solution to becoming a European Level 4 Certified Personal Trainer! The course has been designed specifically to support students who need to split their time with other priorities whilst they study in their spare time to become a fitness professional.
The course development goal was to achieve the same quality and scope of education through e-learning as could be provided through traditional face to face courses. In 2019, the NPTC was the first, purely online personal trainer programme to achieve full, professional, Level 4 accreditation through Europe Active. NFE products continue to break new ground in online fitness education.
In order to register for the PT course students are required to meet the following pre-requisites.
- Completed high school / secondary level education
