I cannot recommend APEC enough. The level of education delivered in their courses is second to none.I did my personal... training course with APEC about 2 years ago and I was so impressed with all the learning I did that I signed up with them again to obtain my strength & conditioning certificate.The attention to detail, the knowledge delivered and the constant communication and feedback both on their online platform and at their practical workshops have made a massive impact on my coaching career.The courses and the workshops are delivered by top coaches in the world of sports so you are guaranteed to learn to a standard higher than any other place.I am currently obtaining my diploma in performance nutrition with APEC and once again I’m very happy with the level of content delivered.If you are thinking in starting your career in the world of fitness get in touch with them as you won’t find higher quality courses out more

APEC are an excellent and extremely professional company to deal with. I personally come from a professional sports... background and until dealing with APEC I had found it difficult to find an organisation that meets the same level of health and fitness standards that I was used to. Not anymore. I would advise anyone seeking to further their education or skill set in the athletic performance sector to reach out to APEC more

Great qualifications, mixture of different learning which made the experience great and helped me gain knowledge and... understanding in practical environment. Tutors were very supportive throughout when I had questions or was going through online learning. Great to have webinars on specialist areas and great interaction and knowledge shown by tutors. Really enjoyed practical days as allowed me to learn new skills and exercises and the rationale behind why you would do them in certain situations.Would highly recommend the course to anyone looking to work in the industry or develop their knowledge further for personal more
