course-content-2colAustralian Fitness Academy has been delivering fitness qualifications for over 27 years. Over this time we have discovered how students prefer to study and how to effectively integrate study into people’s lifestyles (through offering online and face-to-face courses), whilst not compromising on the standards of our courses. Our qualifications are nationally recognised, you can study from anywhere in Australia, or the world, and extensive student support services are in place to support you through your course and into a rewarding career in the fitness industry.

The Academy also specialises in Professional Development courses for the fitness industry. The Professional Development courses and short workshops aim to ensure fitness professionals continue enhancing their personal training skills, keep their knowledge up-to-date and gain valuable professional development credits to go towards their industry registration.

The Academy works with a large range of organisations to help people through their fitness studies from Employment Service Providers to Secondary Schools, Sporting Clubs and Fitness Centres. Over the years the Academy has built up a strong network of fitness industry relationships which help connect students to the industry through work placement and employment.

For students residing in Queensland, Australian Fitness Academy’s fitness courses are government-funded (eligibility criteria apply). More information on funding can be found here.


AFA is registered under the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver, assess and issue nationally recognised qualifications and statements of attainment, and is compliant with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

The Academy has been through many audits during our time in the fitness education industry to ensure our compliance and meeting of the most stringent of standards! We pride ourselves on delivering first-class fitness education and ensuring our graduates are ready to enter the ‘hands-on’ fitness industry.
