Sport, Fitness & Recreation
Part-time Only
Blended & Online

The SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness and SIS40215 Certificate IV in Fitness are the qualifications in which ASQA require for individuals to conduct group and one on one training across a diverse range of contexts. They should be seen as the base-level qualifications for working inside the fitness industry.

As part of Orphic Educations' partnership with leading facilities in the industry, as well as IFA Training, we also deliver some non-registered training (NRT) as a third-party provider. This extra content refines:

  • Relevant theory to the role of a PT
  • Practical implementation of key theory
  • Development of a diverse practical skillset

The Course further enables a substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate exercise training; provide leadership and guidance to clients and other staff; and deal with unpredictable situations applying defined guidelines and procedures from the fitness industry and the organisation.

Once graduated, students will have the confidence to work independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems, including monitoring and managing business activities to operate efficiently and profitably.

Learning Areas:

  • Provide health screening and fitness orientation
  • Instruct long-term exercise programs
