The course starts with 15 days of supervised education in Marbella. Thereafter eight weeks must be dedicated to home assignments and self-studies.
Two practical exams are performed during the initial 15 days in Marbella. The course is finalized with a theoretical exam on line. A prerequisite for a student to get the PT-license at IPTA is to have passed the theoretical exam and to have all home assignments approved.
During the time in Marbella, the days are divided into a morning shift and an afternoon shift of five hours each. In the morning, there is most often practical classes, either at the gym or at outdoors. The afternoon is devoted primarily to the theoretical parts of the course.
