Become a Qualified Fitness Professional.
If a career in the fitness industry excites you, why not become the most well-rounded personal trainer you can be with the Complete Personal Training Course from AIPT. You will graduate with not one, but TWO nationally recognised qualifications - SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness and SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness - that will bulletproof your fitness career.
At AIPT, we offer flexibility when it comes to the delivery of our courses. You can choose to begin with and complete the SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness before launching into and completing the SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness. Or, you have the option to do the entry requirements to complete the Certificate IV and then finish the remaining Certificate III units. No matter which option you feel is right for your situation and schedule, you will graduate with both qualifications.
SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness - This qualification reflects the role of group and gym fitness instructors who plan and deliver group exercise sessions and develop gym-based programs for individuals where the level of personalised instruction and ongoing client monitoring is limited.
SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness – This qualification provides a pathway to work as an employed or self-employed personal trainer in settings such as fitness facilities, gyms, leisure and community centres, client workplaces and homes.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, completing this course gives you an additional skill set: SISSS00128 - Group Exercise Leader.
Obtaining the SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness and SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness qualifications will enable you to work as a fully qualified:
- Health Clubs — Work for a local gym or fitness centre training your own clients as a qualified Personal Trainer. Completing the SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness alone does not allow you to conduct any group exercise classes that are formalised in a group setting. For example, choreographed to music.
- Personal Training Franchises — Work within an established fitness franchise to deliver specialised training to its members.
- Your Own Personal Training Business — Be your own boss and choose when and where you work with your own client network.
- Community Fitness Settings — Support the health and fitness of your own community providing fitness advice for organised group initiatives.
