Like everyone in Australia and the broader global community, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and remain flexible as it changes from day to day. The health and wellbeing of the AIPT community – our students, our industry partners and of course, our team – as well as the broader community, is our main priority. The Senior Management Team within AIPT is responding to the situation as it evolves and considering the impacts on our community and operations.
As announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Chief Medical Officer Professor Brendan Murphy, effective from 12 pm Monday 23rd of March, all gyms and indoor sporting venues will be temporarily closed until further notice.
Is the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers open?
Yes and we are working very closely with our industry partners and Fitness Australia to ensure we can support you during this time within your chosen industry. Your safety and wellbeing is our number one concern and we will continue to keep you well informed during this period.
Upon advice from ASQA and following the Government announcement, we are deferring your on-campus/practical components of your course until a later stage.
What does that mean for you?
In the meantime you will be able to continue the theory (online) component, allowing you to progress within your course and taking the steps towards your chosen industries.
AIPT is closely monitoring the situation and working with our industry bodies and parties during this time.
We will continue to remain open and available for your learning and support during this period. Our dedicated team can assist you with maintaining connectedness and progression with your studies.
AIPT acknowledges the current challenges faced by our students and during this time we will continue to maintain our principles of high-quality service delivery.
This is a great opportunity for you to focus on your studies. If AIPT can support you in any way, please get in touch.
We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. Please reach out to our support team if you require further assistance.
