I am loving my journey with SMART Qualifications. After an initial discussion about what course would suit my needs, Suzanna and Helen both helped me in choosing the ETM course. Being a mum of 3 and working part-time, I needed something that I could do in my spare time and also have the option to take my time with. This course offers just that. Not only is the course fun and enjoyable, it comes with a trainer (Suzanna) who has a wealth of experience, makes you feel extremely welcome and offers support at any point throughout the course. Being a novice makes absolutely no difference at SMART Qualifications therefore I felt at ease and confident in asking for additional support when needed. Not only have I completed the ETM course quicker than I had set my target date to but I also achieved the Kettlebell instructor certificate and attended the advanced kettlebell workshop. Both were run by Helen who, again has a wealth of experience in handling and teaching kettlebell training. I took the instructor course via Zoom (due to covid restrictions) but it felt just as effective and productive as it would in the studio. My journey with SMART Qualifications isn’t ending here. I’m already looking in to the next course…Circuits, here I come!!! 


“Would just like to say I’ve loved every minute of completing my kettlebell course. I was given all the necessary help and support needed to pass this course so that I can now go on to teach kettlebell classes.

Highly recommended and will definitely use them again in the future.

Many thanks”

“I recently, successfully completed the distance learning kettlebell course and have to say it was for me, an excellent experience.  The support I received throughout the course was excellent.  One of the things that impressed me the most was how quickly my work was marked and returned to me.  This was a very important part of completing a distance learning course.  When doing distance learning you can often feel quite isolated, this was not the case on this occasion.  I would strongly recommend this course to anyone considering gaining a qualification for kettlebells.”

Helen is an awesome tutor. She has such a great depth of knowledge in kettlebells. I felt I was learning from someone who really knew her stuff and had bags of experience. As a tutor she has a lovely style and was really supportive, yet also expected us to graft for our qualification. The bruises that I didn’t notice till I got home are testament to that. Thank you Helen.
