Having delivered fitness courses for nearly 30 years, we understand that in order to be successful in your study, your course needs to fit in with your busy lifestyle.
Whether you are balancing work commitments, other studies or a family, we want you to have the flexibility to choose a study option that works for you.
For this reason, we offer our Certificate III and IV in Fitness both online and face-to-face.
Face to Face:
Our other study option is to complete the Certificate III & IV in Fitness face-to-face at our Academy in Melbourne.
If you are someone who thrives in a classroom environment and enjoys a hands-on learning experience, studying face-to-face may be the best option for you.
Our fully-equipped Personal Training facility is located in Caulfield, Melbourne. The Certificate III & IV in Fitness can be studied either full-time or part-time:
- Full-time: In-class attendance 2 days per week, plus additional home study.
- Part-time: Evening attendance 2 nights per week (6.15pm – 9.45pm) and one day over the weekend, plus additional home study.
Face-to-face classes run for approximately 16 weeks for each certificate, with a total time of up to 18 months to complete the course.
You will be thoroughly supported throughout your course by our dedicated lecturers, and you will have access to the same learning materials as the online course.
