What do you mean by best? Best value? shortest time span to get them in?
Essentially all you're looking for to get PT certified is a REPS level3 qualification. REPS accept anyone and their granny so you almost can't fail there.
I don't know about cheapest. I do know that the fast learning course by The Training Room takes 6 weeks, costs you 3k+ and is...well..it's REPS level3 certified, let's leave it there.This gets you from scratch through Level to to level 3.
I hear good things about the YMCA level 2 course. and if you do level 3 after that it doesn't nearly cost you 3k+. I would suggest going down this route. (I would suggest going down any route that isn't the training room or one of their academies, to be honest)
Have a read here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=151564403 for more info.
If you want the best education possible I would suggest going to uni to be honest. But you'd still need your Level 3 to do PT stuff.
Nutrition certs don't mean squat in the UK. You can only do personalised nutrition plans if you have done 3 years of Uni so, just for your own knowledge and to give you a good grounding I would suggest doing as many different nutrition evening classes as possible. Every city will have evening classes for nutrition and exercise, basic nutrition etc. etc. (Though there is a nutrition section with your YMCA Level 2 and your Level 3 which, although very basic, isn'tbad)High quality Home Personal Training in Edinburgh, UK.
