In a Nutshell

Ready to take your career in fitness to new heights? If you're interested in working with individual clients as a personal trainer, you need the Certificate IV in Fitness (SIS40215) from Fit Education.

This dynamic course is a natural progression from the Cert III and offers you the chance to expand your skills and your career opportunities. Combining theory and practice, this course covers the fundamentals of personal and group training, from developing strength and conditioning programs to keeping up-to-date with industry trends and techniques. Since most personal trainers run their own businesses, you'll also develop vital skills for small business management, including planning, marketing and managing finances.

Fit Education offers a flexible mode of study, with courses delivered online so you can complete the course in your own time and at your own pace. There's also the option of studying in person at the Brisbane campus, or combining both online and face-to-face study – whatever suits you best! In as little as 6–12 months, you'll be fully qualified to take the next step in your fitness career here in Australia or abroad. So don't wait – why not get started today?!
