Online training specialists with classroom based options, our courses are easily integrated into your current lifestyle.

student studying fitness onlineHaving delivered fitness courses for over 27 years we understand that students continuing their education, or adults returning to learning, lead busy lives. In order to be successful in your study your course needs to fit in with your lifestyle.

While a good commitment to study is required when you enrol into a fitness course, there needs to be flexibility so you can make the course work for you.

For this reason the Academy offers both online and face-to-face learning, allowing you to choose a course delivery that works for you and your lifestyle.


All of the Academy’s qualifications, including the Personal Training Course (Certificate III & IV in Fitness) can be completed online in a timeframe that fits with your lifestyle, allowing you to finish the course quickly or to put aside a few hours each week and complete within the maximum allocated time, generally 24-months depending on your course.

The online course is fully interactive with videos, presentations, research, exercise libraries, webinars and more.

We have students located in all states of Australia currently completing the Certificate III & IV in Fitness. Our support services are easily accessed, it doesn’t matter where you are located. The support can be accessed via phone, email, Skype or through the webinars held regularly throughout your course.

Even the practical placement can be completed in an approved facility convenient to you. Of course you’re also welcome to drop into the Melbourne Campus to attend some face to face classes or chat to the Student Support Team.

Face to Face:

If you know you will thrive in a classroom environment we have face to face classes at our fully equipped facility in Melbourne. We invite you to take a look around our campus and meet our friendly team. Simply enquire here to arrange a tour.

Payment Options:

The Academy also offers flexible payment options allowing you to pay off the course over the duration of your study.

“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.”
