Professional Development Package
As the leading fitness course provider in Australia, we have created a package of professional development workshops to ensure you’re always at the forefront of the industry.
When creating these courses we identified everything we believed personal trainers needed to know, and would want to know, that was not already included in the Certificate III & IV in Fitness. Coming up with 8 additional qualifications to help you become more ready to enter the industry.

“I would really like to thank you all for a wonderful job you have done in assisting me over the last 12 months to complete certificate 3 and 4. Without the ongoing support, online students would not be able to achieve a qualification in this field of work. Due to the commitment you all put in, it has enabled me to be employed at our local gym and assist in the training of our local rugby league team for next year’s competition. This has given me a great opportunity to work with a sporting group, and hopefully throughout the journey towards the new season experience their progress and know that I have helped them achieve their goals for the new season.”
