Nordic Personal Trainer Certificate

The Nordic Personal Trainer Certificate (NPTC) is an innovative, interactive programme, created as a truly effective online solution to becoming a European Level 4 certified Personal Trainer!

Our goal was to achieve the same quality and scope of education through e-learning as could be provided through traditional face to face courses. The NPTC was the first, purely online programme of study to achieve full, professional, Level 4 accreditation through Europe Active.
