Looking for a career in fitness where you can be your own boss, choose your hours and get paid to have fun on the job? The fitness industry is growing rapidly and needs more qualified personal trainers (PT). Our Certificate III in Fitness course will prepare you for entry into the Certificate IV in Fitness.
You will learn the latest training techniques from industry leaders. Plus, develop your fitness skills and knowledge through practical hands on experience in our on campus gym.
Our course incorporates both fitness and business units and prepares you to work in a gym, in fitness administration or as a fitness or group instructor. You may also deliver exercise programs at community venues, work with clients with special needs or help medical professionals with patient rehabilitation.
You will study theory in the classroom and practice in the gym. You’ll also gain industry experience via practical placement. If you’re prepared to work hard and perform well during placement, you may find you’re offered employment once you complete your course.
