Course Outcomes

Personal Trainer training a client

Personal Trainer

  • 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 teaching class

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.

Nutrition Advisor

There is typically some confusion in the difference between a Nutrition Advisor and a Dietitian. While both aim to assist individuals in achieving optimal health through diet, a Dietitian has additional qualifications that allow them to provide medical nutritional therapy. A Nutrition Advisor is responsible for working with their clients to create meaningful change in their lifestyle with nutritional advice and support. This includes working one-on-one with clients to provide services such as diet and exercise plans, progress tracking and implementing a course of action or referring them to medical health professionals when necessary.

Nutrition Coach

Follow your passion for health and fitness with a career as a Nutrition Coach. A Nutrition Coach’s role focuses on helping their clients build practices and make changes to their diet to optimise their health. There are many reasons why an individual would seek help from a Nutrition Coach; they might have a fitness or performance goal they’re working towards, or simply a desire to improve their quality of life and prevent diet-related disease. As a Nutrition Coach, you’ll have a solid understanding of nutrition science and how to tailor a program to meet an individual’s specific needs, as well as being able to successfully motivate them to stay on track.

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.

Dylan Garbutt Student Review

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.
