Course Overview

The DPT Course is the foundation course in Exercise Science that provides comprehensive theoretical and practical education, equipping the student with the knowledge base and tools to professionally practice as a Qualified, Certified Personal Trainer in the Fitness Industry.

Equal emphasis on the Theoretical & the Practical, is what sets this course apart from the other Personal Trainer Certification providers out there.

Add to this, the fact that the Practical Module is conducted in dedicated, fully equipped labs, at the Brick & Mortar K11 Schools of Fitness Sciences, and stand-alone K11 Labs, equipped by BEING STRONG Fitness Equipment; further add the fact that the Practicals are conducted, hands-on by the K11 Master Trainers, each conducting small batches of no more than 6 students; what you have is the best experience in terms of Practical Education, you can find anywhere in the world.

This is what ensures that a K11 DPT Holder stands apart from other Certified Professionals, as the ONLY certified freshers that can truly be termed as JOB READY.

Since the course is recognised by the Register for Exercise Professionals, India (REPS INDIA), it will provide you with a Registered Exercise Professional Status. A Personal Trainer with a REPS INDIA Membership belongs to a global fraternity of Personal Trainers that have been educated as per Global Standards laid down by the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals (iCREPS).

Due to the inter-register portability between the countries that have National Registers for Exercise Professionals affiliated to iCREPS, all K11 DPT holders, being members of REPS INDIA, under Category-A (Personal Trainer), are qualified to apply for jobs in the Fitness Industries of countries such as Australia, New Zealand, UAE, South Africa, Poland and Ireland.

Thus, once you successfully achieve the K11 DPT, you are not just any other Certified Personal Trainer; you are a JOB READY, Registered Exercise Professional.
