How do I know which fitness course is right for me?

When deciding between a Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness, take some time reading the detailed explanation of the courses and their career outcomes. If you want to become a gym instructor, the Cert III in Fitness is the easiest way to gain a nationally accredited qualification. If you’re wanting to start in the industry with a higher-level certification, then the dual Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness is better suited for you. A Cert IV in Fitness is ideal if you already have the Cert III and want to upskill or are re-entering the workforce after some time off.

What does the code before the course name mean?

If you have noticed that our Cert III in Fitness has a SIS30321 code before it, while the Cert IV in Fitness has SIS40221, you might be curious to know what these letters and numbers mean. Unlike some may think, they are not our institution’s course code for the Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness. These codes are set by the ASQA (Australian Skills Quality Authority), the national regulator for the VET education sector, and confirm that we are a nationally-registered training organisation (RTO) that delivers a VET course meeting the government-regulated requirements for these disciplines.

What are the advantages of studying a Cert 3 or 4 in Fitness online over an in-person course?

Studying online rather than on-campus offers several advantages. To begin with, you can start at any time without having to wait for a new semester to begin. You also have more flexibility on how and when you study, meaning that you can fit your certification around work and family commitments.

Online Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness also tend to be less expensive as the administering body doesn’t have to provide you with physical facilities. What’s more, you’ll be saving on the cost of travelling to and from campus.

Because you can study from anywhere, online fitness certifications are accessible to more people, including students that live in rural or remote areas, cannot physically travel or are temporarily overseas.

Lastly, enrolling in a Cert 3 or 4 in Fitness online can also uniquely equip you to face the challenges of recent years. With many of our activities having moved to the digital sphere, what better way to be prepared to offer online courses than to have studied the subject online yourself?

Why should I study a Cert 3 or 4 in Fitness online with Australian College?

At Australian College, we know what’s needed to make an online course successful. We offer all our students 24/7 access to their learning materials and unlimited access to your faculty. You’ll also be appointed a qualified trainer to support you through your learning journey.

On the financial side of things, we already offer fair and affordable course feeds, which we top with the possibility of selecting an interest-free payment plan that will see you debt-free by the time you graduate.

Since the Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness are designed to prepare you for a practical, hands-on career, our course structure includes video assessment, practical components and group role-plays. Our experienced and qualified instructors are experts in providing practical, applied instruction that will help you communicate effectively with clients and have all the skills you need to ace your career in the fitness industry.
