What do you learn in the fitness instructor B licence training?

Basically, the fitness instructor B licence describes the basic knowledge as a fitness instructor. The B licence represents the second certification level of the training licence and is almost indispensable for working as a fitness instructor.

The teaching content is divided into different modules. In addition to a detailed chapter in the script, each module also includes high-quality teaching videos. There, the contents are again supplemented by the lecturers for better presentation and shown in an easily understandable way.

Each module ends with a small test of five multiple-choice questions. This learning test serves as a direct check of the knowledge you have learned.

First you learn the anatomical basics of the human body. This includes basic knowledge such as the structure of the cells as well as special information on the musculoskeletal system and the muscles. Building on this, you will learn everything you need to know about training theory, creating training plans and healthy nutrition.

You can download the entire learning material as a PDF and also order the teaching script for your training. You can find the teaching videos in your online campus.

The B-Licence training is divided into 12 chapters:

  • Module 1: Job Profile and Job Market
  • Module 2: Structure and Function of the Cell
  • Module 3: Types of Tissue: Classification and Function
  • Module 4: Cardiovascular System

Fitness Instructor B Licence – Frequently asked questions

Is the fitness instructor C license necessary for a fitness instructor?

The fitness trainer C license often only provides basic fundamental knowledge. In our experience, a C license is no longer sufficient to practice the profession of fitness instructor these days. Many fitness studios require at least a B license.

Your chances of entering the profession are therefore often much lower with a C license. Your best chances of entering the profession are with a B license. That's why we at OTL start with the B license, which includes all the contents of the C license and imparts even more in-depth knowledge.

Which contact persons are available to me during my training?

Is the shoe pinching or do you simply have a question about training? Our colleagues from customer management are always available to help you with any organizational questions you may have. They also have the expertise to help you with content-related issues. Here you can find our contact details .

At our regular webinars, we go into even more detail about exciting topics and burning questions. In addition, as a member of our exclusive Facebook group, you can exchange ideas with like-minded people throughout the entire training and become part of the OTL community. From the time you register for your exams, one of our professional instructors will be at your disposal.

What opportunities do I have with the fitness instructor B licence training?

Otherwise, you can also directly start your professional career and apply to various companies in the field of fitness and health as well as gyms. With the fitness instructor B licence you have a basic education that allows you to work as a instructor on the surface.

Not to be underestimated is of course now your accumulated knowledge. With the contents of the B licence you will be able to perfectly restructure your own training to your goals, to get the best out of you and your training! You will become your own instructor and contact person, but also for your environment you will possibly become a very sought-after person.

Everything about discounts, funding and instalment payments

Is there a discount for pupils, students and trainees?

You are still a student or you are currently in training or study?

Then simply submit a current proof (e.g. your student ID, your student card or your training certificate) to our customer service before your purchase and receive an individual 25% discount code for your training.

Is there the possibility to buy in instalments?

If you do not want to invest the full amount for an education all at once, we offer you a convenient purchase in instalments with 3 or 6 payments.
