COURSE OVERVIEW

The Diploma of Fitness course enables Personal Trainers to provide tailored exercise plans to clients with a range of medical conditions and work alongside Allied Health Professionals.

Exercise Therapists can work in a broad range of settings including: exercise therapy clinics, medical and rehabilitation clinics, hospitals, health care centres, corporate health environments, plus health clubs and gyms.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

WHY SHOULD I DO THE COURSE?

With statistics suggesting that 60% of the Australian population is overweight or obese, with many suffering from lifestyle diseases, there is a real need for Personal Trainers to be upskilled on a wider range of conditions, so they can work with clients of moderate risk that have stable conditions.

Upon completion the Institute’s graduates will have many opportunities to enjoy a long and successful career in this area, with potential options including: working in an exercise therapy clinic, or at health care centres, medical clinics and hospitals, as well as rehabilitation clinics.
