Fitness Students Practical Placement Programs
Bridging the gap between study and employment!
The Practical Placement Program is a structured program designed to give students of the Certificate III in Fitness and Certificate IV in Fitness true ‘hands on’ experience prior to entering the fitness industry.
The in-depth practical placement program takes you from a shadowing role to a training role over a short period of time, giving you the confidence to enter the fitness industry as well as improving your employment opportunities through obtaining valuable ‘on the job’ practical experience!
Many facilities Australia wide have taken on AFA students for practical placement and the Academy’s corporate partners are happy to take on further students for placement. The Academy’s Student Support Officers can provide a list of facilities offering placement opportunities to any students who need assistance.
Practical Placement is required across all certification courses.
For more information on the Practical Placement requirements within your course please contact Australian Fitness Academy on 1300 973 342.
I have trained and mentored many prospective Gym Instructors and Personal Trainers over my 11 years in the fitness industry, but Regan was fantastic and was far and away the best work experience person I have encountered. I would have no hesitation in recommending Regan for a position in any gym or Personal Training Studio. Much of the success of our experience with Regan can be attributed to the fact that the Australian Fitness Academy’s program ensured that the student actually studied and experienced all facets of the fitness industry. The program was extremely thorough and made the student aware of the rigours involved in being a successful Gym Instructor or Personal Trainer.
