If you have read my previous PT Diaries blog post (Can find here) you’ll know I’m in the process of studying and training to become a Personal Trainer. Back on that original blog post you can find out what courses I am studying, who I am training with and how I started out. I wanted to write this post as a little update on how it’s going as there has been some major progress made since I last posted.
At the time of writing this post I have completed all my module work and the quizzes and questions to go with them and completed my case studies that go with my Level 2.
I sat my Anatomy and Physiology exam on Sunday 7th Feb (passed with 94%) and sat my Principles of Exercise, Health and Fitness exam on Sunday 21st Feb (passed with 92%). I am so happy that I passed these exams and despite the exams being over I will continue to refresh my knowledge and continue revising (sort of) as the information I have learnt in my Level 2 will flow nicely into my Level 3.
Now I have completed both my exams I am allowed to book my practical face-to-face assessment, HOWEVER the lockdown and pandemic means that obviously the gyms and centres are all shut, so I can’t yet book my assessment. [EDIT: It’s looking promising that the gyms will open around the 12th April, according to the governments plans to leave lockdown etc, so my practical will happen as soon as they open!]
Despite this being frustrating as (according to my dashboard on my learning portal) I am 96% complete with my Level 2, I can’t complete it 100% until I have done my face-to-face assessment.
In the meantime whilst I wait I will continue to revise, and prep for my assessment and OriGym have allowed me access to my Level 3 Personal Training qualification, to begin my studies for that too.
This is all becoming so real and even more exciting but I cannot wait till I can write the post that I have successfully completed my Level 2!
Watch this space…
