Most people we meet ask the same type of questions. The following are the top seven. You might have some others! Just ask one of our Career Gurus to help find the answer.
1. HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET STARTED IN MY NEW FITNESS CAREER?
Quicker than you think. We run 14-week, 20-week and 52-week courses, so it really is up to you how quickly you want to complete your fitness training. To find out about our enrolment dates for your chosen course, please contact one of our Career Gurus.
2. WILL I BE ABLE TO FIND A JOB IN THE FITNESS INDUSTRY?
With research showing that the Australian fitness industry has grown 10.9% every year, for the past five years (IBISWorld), job prospects are very good. To help you in your career search, the Australian Institute of Fitness runs recruitment nights, and has Career Scouts connecting you with employers.
3. DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP MY DAY JOB TO DO THE COURSE?
No you don’t. Depending on your circumstances we have a range of course options consisting of full-time or part-time on-campus, online, plus a blended study option for some courses which offers a mixture of the two.
4. WHAT ABOUT EXAMS? ARE THEY SCARY AND HIGH PRESSURED?
Not at all. Our courses are designed to make you ‘job ready’ and get you into the fitness industry as quickly as possible. That means no stressful, written tests or exams; just a range of fun and practical learning experiences, such as quizzes, knowledge checks and regular evaluations.
5. IF I MOVE, CAN MY COURSE MOVE WITH ME?
That’s no problem at all. We have 13 campuses across Australia, so if needs be, we’re more than happy for you to organise a transfer from any Australian Institute of Fitness campus to another. Plus, if you need to take time off for any reason, you can defer your course too.
6. I’M AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT, CAN I STUDY WITH YOU?
We welcome international students. If you are currently living overseas and wish to study at the Australian Institute of Fitness, the best thing you can do is speak to a Career Guru to discuss visa requirements and whether you are eligible to study one of our courses.
7. CAN I GET HELP WITH COURSE FEES?
Absolutely. For those needing assistance with fees, the Australian Government loan scheme, VET FEE-HELP is available for the Institute’s Remedial Massage Therapist (Diploma of Remedial Massage HLT50307) and Exercise Therapist (Diploma of Fitness SIS50213) courses. To find out if you’re eligible, talk to one of our Career Gurus or take a look at the VET FEE-HELP page.Next › To get started - Request your Free DVD - Click here
