Our tutoring staff will also be available on chatbox, via email, or by phone to assist you any way they can while you do that and help answer any of your questions.

You then have practical workshops in one of our nationwide venues so you can benefit from our expert in-person tutoring team and get hands-on experience.

What You'll Learn

OriGym’s Fitness Teaching and Assessing Course is split into two separate qualifications: one in teaching and the other in assessing.

When combined, you’ll be equipped to deliver learning materials, while also knowing how to evaluate different kinds of formal assessments.

Understanding Roles, Responsibilities, and Relationships in Education

You’ll learn how to manage the student-teacher relationship and more about the role you play as a course instructor. 

This includes learning your responsibilities as a teacher in terms of the welfare of students and other tutors, in order to create a supportive learning environment.

Using Inclusive Teaching Approaches

Our Fitness Teaching and Assessing course will walk you through strategies that are inclusive for all students including diverse demographics with different needs. This is essential for ensuring that all your students feel safe, welcomed and supported during their course.

Facilitating Group Learning

Covering the theories of learning, teaching and assessment processes, in this module you’ll be taught how to run inductions and icebreakers, as well as how to set ground rules for group sessions to develop an effective learning environment.

Principles and Practices of Assessment

We’ll teach about the different types of assessment methods in fitness courses, how to plan assessment days, legal requirements and how to manage quality assurance during the assessment process. You’ll also have the opportunity to shadow an assessment day for real OriGym students.

Careers & Progression

Becoming a qualified teacher and assessor means you will be able work in a range of vocational education institutions, such as reputable course providers like ourselves!

In terms of how you can progress and develop your career, keep in mind you’re only able to teach and assess on courses you’ve personally completed.

Therefore, if you’re looking to progress your career you will need to acquire specialist Level 5 Personal Trainer Qualifications or branch into a new discipline with our Level 4 Sports Massage Course.

All of our courses here at OriGym are accredited by CIMSPA, the leading accreditation professional body for the fitness industry. 

Due to this qualification being entirely self-paced, you can finish the Fitness Teaching and Assessing course in your own time. How long it will take you will just depend on how quickly you move through the online learning materials!

However, on average the Fitness Tutor and Assessor course takes 8 weeks to complete.

You’ll qualify with both a teaching qualification and an assessor qualification meaning you’ll learn all of the practical skills to deliver lessons and mark and evaluate people’s assessments.

You’ll learn practical skills for lessons and assessments, making them safe and exclusive. You’ll also learn all the knowledge you’ll need of the legalities, roles, and responsibilities of an educational environment.

Check out our ‘What You’ll Learn’ tab above for more information about individual modules and details of specific topics we cover. 

You won’t need insurance to secure any roles as a teacher or assessor, but employers will usually require you to undergo the Garda vetting process. 

There are no prerequisites to enrol on the course as you’ll be learning skills to plan and deliver other people’s learning. However, you can only teach on a course you’re qualified in so you may need to complete further personal trainer qualifications in order to teach them.

Amazing Course & Career

After having a long-term passion for fitness and having built up her fitness Instagram page (@angfitpt) following to nearly 60k, Angel was getting messages constantly regarding her routines and workout posts. She decided to enrol onto OriGym's Personal Training Diploma and since has also started her Advanced Nutrition Qualification to offer her followers expert, qualified advice. 

Before I started the course, I was a lover of the gym, but unsure where I wanted to take my career. I was at university studying something I couldn’t see myself doing. That was until I found OriGym. I wanted to do the course so I could learn more about a passion of mine and eventually turn it into a career. I wanted the knowledge to turn my passion into my day to day life. I am now going to start working in a gym as a personal trainer, building my own business and hopefully continue to study around the subject too. I’m excited for what the future holds!

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace!

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
