Study Structure

Everyone is different, and learns in a different way.  We therefore offer you the choice of studying your Personal Training Course Online, which can be at your own pace and carried out from wherever is convenient, or you can study face-to-face (full time or part time) at our Melbourne or Brisbane campus.

If you’re unsure which option is best for you, contact one of our career advisors who can assist you in determining which study mode would best suit you.

Point of reassurance: If you find a certain study mode isn’t suitable, you can request to transfer depending on your circumstances. NB: Course fees differ between online and face-to-face delivery, therefore you will be required to pay the difference if applicable. For full terms and conditions, please see our student handbook.
