The nationally recognised Certificate IV in Fitness will give you the skills to teach and coach individual clients, or groups, to improve their general health and fitness through exercise.
You will build on your existing skills in fitness-related activities, learning a variety of methods of using exercise to help your clients increase their fitness, grow their strength, lose weight, rehabilitate from minor injury and improve their general health and wellbeing. You will develop the skills to evaluate and re-evaluate clients' physical condition, and provide advice on how they should progress to increase their fitness. You will learn how to plan generic and unique fitness programs, how to instruct clients on achieving their goals, and how to keep abreast of current fitness trends and developments, equipment and techniques, as well as developing your management and administration skills.

Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
