Become a Qualified Personal Trainer Fast
Get a head start on a career in fitness with our Fast-Track Personal Training Course which consists of SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness + Entry Requirements.
Becoming qualified as a Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor is made simpler with our Fast-Track Personal Training Course that contains all the knowledge, skills and experience of our PT courses in one place.
Theoretical components will be completed online and will equip you with up-to-date knowledge on anatomy, physiology and nutrition. The face-to-face, practical components of the course can be delivered inside real gyms, mentored by qualified professionals. You will gain valuable, hands-on experience which will put you ahead of the competition when you graduate with a nationally recognised qualification.
Upon qualification, the Fast-Track Personal Training Course will enable you to work as a fully qualified Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor.
- 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.
Group Exercise Instructor
Plan and deliver group exercise sessions and develop gym-based programs for groups of individuals where the level of personalised instruction and ongoing client monitoring is limited. Group Exercise Instructors often work in settings such as fitness facilities, gyms, and leisure and community centres.

They have an excellent range of courses on offer, as well as superb customer service that made me feel welcomed and supported throughout my studies.
I spoke with Tamara, who was wonderful. She gave me all the information about the course and kept in touch during the enrolment process. The AIPT team are always available to help you and answer any questions you may have.
Having the opportunity to study my theory online and at my own pace allowed me the freedom to continue working my full-time job. The face-to-face branch of the studies was an amazing experience to be able to work with my instructor, who had many years of experience in the industry.
AIPT supported me from the moment I joined. Even through Covid times, they carried on and were always there for me if I needed anything. AIPT customer service is a real credit to them; they are amazing.
Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working 5 days a week and start a university degree. They made this possible by allowing flexibility throughout my study while still ensuring I received the highest possible education throughout the course. The range of payment plans was also a significant factor for me.
