CEC Courses & PDP Workshops
As a qualified Fitness Professional registered to work within the fitness industry (with Fitness Australia or Physical Activity Australia) you need to keep your knowledge up to date and relevant through continuing education.
While completing the Certificate III & IV in Fitness is a fantastic achievement, it is really just the starting point in your career as an exercise professional.
At Australian Fitness Academy, we recognise the importance of you continuing to build your skills and knowledge while you are working in the industry to enable you to stay up to date with the latest fitness trends and methodologies.
Therefore we regularly develop new online programs and workshops that can be completed at your convenience to keep you ahead of the pack when it comes to training your clients.
Convenience and Flexibility
The programs are accredited with Fitness Australia (2, 3 or 4 CECs per course) to enable you to meet your registration obligations. The online programs can be completed from home or anywhere you have internet access and we offer the workshops from our facility in Melbourne. If you have a minimum of 6 participants we can also arrange for them to be delivered at your workplace, which makes it even more convenient for you to complete.
