A few common questions to help you out. If you have any others please get in touch.

Why Choose Pegasus Training?

At Pegasus we live by the moto “quality over quantity”. We know the importance of maintaining a top quality education to our students and therefore recognise the need for delivering superior support in everything we do. Unlike many other providers, we don’t deliver courses throughout the UK simply to try and increase numbers and sales, we focus on maximising contact with our students and delivering solely from our base in Glasgow, Scotland, as we feel this is the best way to learn and to help you develop into the best fitness professional you can be. We don’t market courses with only 2 or 3 days contact every odd weekend, as we know that these don’t provide quality for money to students. Instead, we focus on maximising contact with our students allowing us to provide practical support and knowledge on a frequent basis and allowing you to learn from the knowledge and experiences we have gained over several decades in the industry. We strive to use these experiences to give you the confidence and exceptional knowledge to outperform your colleagues in the industry and work continuously to develop and improve our service to our students.

If you want to bet the best you have to learn from the best, a service we have been providing to our students for over 20 years. Being one of the very first companies in the United Kingdom to provide accredited training in the Health and Fitness industry we are a leading provider delivering support to students looking to start their new career.

Over 90% of our students are from referrals and have either come to us on recommendation from fellow PT’s, Gym Managers or friends and family, a testament to the standard and quality of training we deliver.

Can i only study full-time?

No. At Pegasus Training we offer both Full-Time and Blended learning options.

Whilst we would always argue that Full-Time learning is the best method, as it maximises face-to-face contact and practical experience, we understand that not everyone will have the ability to attend a full-time course. We therefore offer our unique Blended Learning option which allows you to learn at your own pace and in your own time. Our Blended Learning option also allows our students to attend one of our full-time courses when they are available as well as request support whenever needed through e-mail, call and face-to-face chats.

Our goal is to provide our students with the best education and knowledge possible no matter which option they choose.

Do you have different payment options?

Yes. We offer 0% finance on all of our courses.

We are happy to work with you in developing a payment plan that fits your needs and we are always happy to adjust as required if circumstance change.

We never want finance to be a limitation to education and starting a new career. If we train you as well as we know we can then we know you'll flourish in the industry and payment won't be a problem anyway.

All we ask is that you communicate with us and let us know if you would like us to adjust something for you.

Once qualified when will i get my certificate?

Certificates are normally issued within 1-2 weeks of passing.

As a recognised centre of excellence we have the ability to obtain certificates in a shorter period of time.

How quickly can i start a job after qualifying?

You have the ability to start employment as soon as your have qualified.

We can issue a 'letter of acheivement' to be presented to your employer until your certificate arrives.

We even have some students start work before completeing their entire course thanks to our visiting gym owners and managers.

Do you offer a pass guarantee?

No and Yes. Unlike many other providers we don't market a "Pass Guarantee" on our courses. We don't know about you but we're pretty sure we wouldn't want to learn from somewhere that guarantees a pass to everyone. Not only would we be concerned about the quality of educationn we were being given, but we know that we ourselves wouldn't be looking to employ someone who obtained their qualification from a company that GUARANTEES a pass.

Instead we GUARANTEE to work with you for as long as it takes to help you pass. It's this guarantee that helps us to train the highest quality Personal Traininers and Therapists in the business and why we are recognised by numerous owners and managers for the standard of education we deliver.

Don't worry this doesn't happen to many students but if it does you know that we are there to support you and that the standard of your qualification will be worth far more as a result.

Do you offer a guaranteed job interview?

No. Again, we try not to market false gimmicks just to gain students. If every student is guaranteed a job interview then it must be pretty meaningless. An interview doesn't guarantee a job.

Instead, we help to connect our students with local gym owners and managers and have a number of individuals visit to talk to our students throughout our courses. This process allows our students to learn what it takes and where they should focus to truly stand out and gain a job.

As well as the above we also deliver a Business Skills module as part of several of our courses.

That being said, if its super important to you, we can guarantee you an interview on becoming qualified if you really wish :-)

What would be your top tips in looking for a Training Provider?

We would love your business however we also just want to make sure that everyone receives the best training possible to make our industry better. So if you are looking at other providers here are a few things to check...

  1. Always check who their courses are accredited and endorsed by. ActiveIQ and CIMPSA are the gold standard and Internationally recognised.
  2. Check how much support you will receive on your qualification. Are you going to receive actual support or only a few days here and there and simply given learning materials online.
  3. Ask where the providers tutors were trained. You may be surprised.
    (Hint: It was probably with us)
  4. Test the knowledge of the provider. Don't be scared to ask questions and check their understanding, afterall its them that will be teaching you.

Finally, Always do your research, we get to hear horror stories of students who come to us after not receiving certificates from other providers or feel let down from the supprot they received. Always do your research before signing up.

  • Leoni Waghorn

    The knowledge and experience Ray has is invaluable and he really does care for his students and about their plans for the future. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, learnt more than I could have imagined and met some lovely people along the way. Most importantly, I can now pass on my knowledge from the L3 Certificate in Personal Training course onto those who also need help and hopefully make a difference. I can’t recommend Ray and all of the team at Pegasus highly enough and would say to anyone who is contemplating doing this course - ‘do it, you won’t regret it!’
