Enhance Your Expertise by Becoming a Personal Trainer

Certificate IV in Fitness is the industry standard for personal trainers anywhere in Australia. It is not only required if you want to work as a personal trainer, but also if you’d like to conduct group activity classes independently or in various locations.

After completing our comprehensive course, you will be able to work independently in your chosen field.

Goals & Requirements

As the sequel to Certification III, our Certification IV course will teach you how to:
  • Conduct and evaluate long-term periodised fitness plans
  • Develop your sales and marketing skills
  • Evaluate and analyse the performance of individuals or groups, in a variety of settings
  • Work as a personal trainer in a fitness centre
  • Apply teaching methods and instructional styles, indoors and outdoors
  • Be competent in strength and conditioning programs
  • Start your own personal training business
  • Work as a strength and conditioning coach for a sporting team
If you have already acquired Certificate III, you might wonder why you should go through the effort of obtaining yet another certificate. However, there are plenty of advantages to Certificate IV. You can work as a personal trainer or group fitness trainer, in or out of a gym. You can also perform group training sessions or personal training sessions in public places. Moreover, you can be a group trainer or personal trainer on cruise liners. Finally, you can work in the same capacity in many countries.

Depending on the experience and skills you obtained in prior study, you can even apply for exemptions from certain units in our course. If you think you have relevant experience, don’t hesitate to apply for Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) or Recognition of Previous Learning (RPL).
