Infofit’s Personal Training Home Study Course does not require approval by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training.  As such, the registrar did not review this program.

You will need to take a CPR/First Aid Course before your exams – the cost is $90 for that. We do have Practicum Courses, which are not required, but are amazing at giving you the skills and experience you need. We have two – one is $325 and the second is $475. You can join those anytime after you have completed your Weight Training Course. We give you 3 months to complete each Practicum.
