TA Basic PTI

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by Mattybouy, Oct 8, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if the TA Basic PTI course can be used on civi street, can you become a personal trainer or work in a gym as a gym instructor?
     
  2. Yes, you can apply for the REPS qualification. I think the Basic qual gives you the equivalent to a Physical Trainer in civvi street (REPs 2), but I could be wrong.
    Go onto the British Army website, find the APTC pages and follow the links to REPS. Regular PTI's can get the annual fee (£25 ish) paid for via the APTC, don't know about the TA, try contacting your Bde RTC, the SMI APTC will have info.
     
  3. Onthebus is bang on. You can join REPs for £25 p.a. as level 2 with quals in circuits and gym. However to maintain REPs status you will have to attened seminars or training courses to get acredited learning points. 12 a year for level 2. Usually 4 a day per course etc. The industry pay a poor wage though, the money is in private training
