Can I book workshops and assessment days if I want some face to face coaching?

Yes, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

We hold group workshops throughout the year. All qualification workshops and practical assessment days are included in your course. 


If you require even more flexibility on dates, we arrange one-to-one workshops and assessments with one of our experienced and friendly assessors. Contact us for more information on prices, times, dates and locations.

What happens once I enrol?

We give you instant access to our study portal. Our portal is packed with videos, quizzes and resources that guide you through every assessment of your course. So you can start working towards your qualifications today.
You will also receive a personalised welcome video from your tutor giving you directions on what to do first, along with additional tips for study success. Whilst you work through the assessments, your tutor will check in on you regularly to answer questions you may have and offer additional support or guidance.

What if I have questions or need more support?

You can email, WhatsApp, or post a question in our online community. We get back to people immediately or at the latest the next working day. Our communications with you are usually voice notes or video messages, so the support you receive is very personal to your needs.

How do you complete the practical assessments online?

If you don’t want to attend our practical workshops and assessment days. No problem.

You can just submit your assessments online.

It is super simple. You record yourself using a phone, tablet, laptop, or digital camera. Then share the video with us. However, we are only a message away if you need assistance.

Do I get support even after I qualify?

Of course, once you join Storm Fitness Academy, you are a member for life. We are committed to helping you succeed. We are always in your pocket whenever you need us. Just message our community when you have challenges. That is why we have so many five-star reviews. Our personalised dedication to your achievement.

Are there any entry requirements for your courses?
  • A genuine passion for health and fitness
  • Basic English language/literacy skills
  • As we work with so many different countries, it is impossible to translate all our resources into multiple languages. Therefore, we require all our trainers to read, understand and speak a basic level of English.
