This is my third course with Smart and the second with Claire as the Tutor. I can’t recommend them enough. The Pilates course was very thorough and gave me the confidence to begin teaching classes a couple of weeks after completing it. Claire is very knowledgeable and the office staff are always very helpful. Cheers Helen
I just finished my level 3 Personal Training with Smart Qualifications and I’m so excited about everything , everyone is so professional , I learned a lot of interesting things , I really recommend it to Everyone !!!
Having recently qualified as an ETM instructor, I wanted to achieve further qualifications. I chose Smart Qualifications to do the Award in Step and Aqua Aerobics. Both courses were delivered professionally by fantastic instructors. Within 4 weeks I had qualified in both. Smart Qualifications make learning fun which makes you at ease. Help was always on hand if needed. I would highly recommend Smart Qualifications.
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.
I completed the Pre and Post Natal course with Smart Qualifications in November 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tutor was excellent and very knowledgeable, the other students were really friendly and the administration side was excellent. Everything was done when they said it would be done and my coursework was marked promptly. I highly recommend this course to all fitness professionals.
First aid – Tracey was knowledgeable, friendly and the whole course had a practical element to it, which made it really engaging, the group wasn’t too big which made it easier to interact with others. The course took place in a friendly and relaxed environment. Tea and coffee is always a plus!
Fantastic. I cannot recommend Smart Qualifications enough. It’s worth saying that over the past year I’ve seen 6 friends go through an ETM course with different providers and every single one of them had some sort of issue with them. I have not had a single problem with Smart Qualifications and everything has been better than what I’ve seen those 6 friends go through. Suzanna was always approachable, helpful and knowledgeable! Here you have someone that actually knows what they’re teaching and, more importantly, cares! The course was structured clearly and was flexible to our requirements. There was a small group (3) of us on the training days, which meant the training was focused and you felt like you had a strong support function not just from Suzanna, but from those you trained with. All in all, if you’re looking for an ETM course to do, for the price currently offered, you’d be hard pressed to go wrong with Suzanna and Smart Qualifications. I’m confident that the other courses are of a similar standard of service and I’ll definitely be looking to them for further training as my career progresses. Thank you, Suzanna!!!
ETM & GYM – The courses are challenging and learning new things is always great. Mark & Suzanna were always on the end of the phone helping and the classroom dates were fun and it was lovely meeting new people 🙂 I hope to do more in the future!
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.
I chose to use Smart qualifications after meeting Mark Brearley (one of smart qualifications tutors) he had helped me to complete my L2 Gym instructor certificate when another provider (not linked to Smart qualifications) of the course had shown themselves to be entirely inadequate. The first qualification I completed with Smart Qualifications was my L3 personal Trainer certificate, from start to finish both Suzanna and Mark were on hand to steer me through any difficulties I faced with the curriculum, I was able to get through the course at a good pace and confident with the theory and practical instruction I had been given. i have since completed L2 circuit training and sports conditioning certificates and have recently enrolled on the L3 Boot camp course which i am very excited about getting completed.
All course material and instruction has always been well thought out and presented and I have been more than happy with the service provided. I would recommend Smart Qualifications to anyone interested in getting ahead in their career within the fitness industry.
I have attended several courses from Smart Qualifications and each one of them has been a great experience which has enriched me personally and professionally. The organisation and delivery were always spot on but what made a big difference was the tutors: friendly, knowledgeable and always available to provide support with clear explanations and practical tips from first-hand experience. Highly recommended to anybody who is serious about a career in the fitness industry.
I’ve found both courses I have completed well organised and have felt well informed and supported throughout. The content is thorough and delivered brilliantly, I feel very confident using what I have learned and am looking forward to putting it to use.
Wonderful professional and friendly Yoga school. Takes small groups to guarantee excellent support and attention. Suzanna the founder is beyond efficient and offers immediate support and customer service. Courses are designed to be progressive in an organic way allowing each individual training group to be different from the last.
They also cover spiritual Nutrition.
I would recommend smart qualifications to anybody looking to build on their qualifications, the structure of the courses are far superior to any other course provider I have learned through in the past, they tailor the course around the individual, I myself had a very busy lifestyle and thought at first I was going to find it hard juggle everything, but the team at smart qualifications bent over backwards to give me the support and help I needed, after completion of my level 3 personal trainer I am now looking at my next course, won’t ever go anywhere else.
I would recommend SMART Qualifications to anyone. From the point of my initial enquiry, Suzanna and her team were quick to reply, and most importantly to me, they were well organised. Claire, my tutor gave excellent feedback and offered
ongoing support. I wanted to work through my qualification quickly and they wholeheartedly supported this.
I thoroughly enjoyed working through my GP Referral Diploma with SMART and found the online component easy to use and emailing the LAP or portfolio to Tutor and the DVD assessment, just made the whole process quicker and much easier.
Rather than the queueing at the Post Office everytime you submit, that I was used to.
A fantastic experience, from start to finish. Thank you.
I am lucky enough to have practiced yoga with Helena for a few years now. She is someone who was able to connect me with the magic of yoga and open my eyes to just how life-changing it can be. She is a truly gifted teacher and inspiring just to be around, so when the opportunity arose to train to be a teacher with her I could not pass it up. The course itself is fascinating, brilliantly well-structured, and very “hands-on” with lots of practical work right from the start. Helena’s advice and guidance is invaluable. She created a space in which our group of trainees bonded quickly and became very close; we always felt supported and encouraged in our training, both by Helena and each other. Not everyone on the course was necessarily sure that they wanted to go on and be a teacher of yoga to others, but the real gift of this is that it deepens your own yoga and further awakens your awareness – not just of the asana, the physical practice, but of all facets of yoga in daily
life. Clearly that’s a great benefit to the self, but also those around you still ultimately benefit from that even if you’re not actively teaching them a class. I am quite sad that the course has now ended as I will miss my monthly get-togethers with my yoga family, but I am excited and grateful to have received the knowledge and skills that were passed on to us through this course. My advice to anyone thinking about signing up would be to stop thinking so much – go with your heart and just do it!
I cannot recommend Smart Qualifications highly enough! I completed the Level 2 Fitness Instructor course in only 2 months by taking the distance learning option. It was great for me as I was able to learn at my own pace and in my own time. I loved the Level 2 course so much I decided to start the Level 3 Personal Training course as soon as I had finished the Level 2. Suzanna was an absolute star, always available whenever I had a question (frequently!!). She also met me at a time and place that suited me to do the assessment papers. This meant that I could carry on working full time while doing the courses. The courses are detailed enough that you feel confident to train people straight away but you don’t feel bombarded by too much info. I completed the Level 3 in 3 months and 2 weeks into Personal Training I already have 5 clients!!
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 found the level 3 Pilates course offered by Smart Qualifications to be excellent. A balanced mix of practical and theory throughout, and a focus on gaining a real understanding of the fundamental theories and principles behind delivering an effective Pilates session. The tutor was approachable and incredibly knowledgeable, and the course well-structured and both challenging and enjoyable at the same time. I would definitely recommend this course!
whilst studying for a higher education course I was able to par take in two smartqualification,
level 2 gym instructor and level 3 personal trainer, with Suzanna as my tutor.
when doing these course it was flexible and easy to work in with my other commitments
with allowing me to set my own deadlines but as well as being strongly guided and
I found the courses really interesting and usefully as all the material is really detailed and I
can now relate back and keep a good understanding when I have clients. Suzanna adapted
around how I learn and gave me constant assistance when needed on any of the part I
