Courses, Apprenticeships And Funding For Personal Trainers

Modern Apprenticeship Funding Details

Course Funding

Fitness Training Scotland can cover part or all of the cost of your chosen programme of study through a number of different funding streams, should you meet the eligibility criteria.

This makes our courses far more affordable than many of our competitors, and enables individuals and employers to gain the qualifications they need without worrying about the cost.
