Getting Your Personal Training Certification has Never Been Easier!
BCPTI has been certifying Personal Trainers for nearly 10 years now and has supported graduates throughout their careers as Trainers, Fitness Managers, and fellow Educators. Based out of our private training facility in Richmond, BCPTI offers students the ability to take what they learn in class and immediately apply it in the weight room with their classmates under the supervision and guidance of highly experienced educators. This unique, integrated approach to learning lets students hit the ground running when they begin their careers as Trainers shortly after graduation. For students who take our guaranteed job placement with Fitness World gyms, we immediately support their continuing education endeavours beyond their time spent in class.
