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 Will I be able to find a job in the fitness industry?
YES, YES, YES! The fitness industry is booming and there are no signs of it slowing. Once qualified you'll have plenty of job opportunities to work in personal training studios, health clubs, outdoor training or on cruise ships. We have a partner company - fitnesscareers.com.au - which specialises in finding fitness employers the staff they need. Not only that, your qualifications are recognised nationally and around the world!
2 What about exams - I haven't studied for years. Are they scary and high pressured?
Don't worry! To get you into the fitness industry as quickly as possible you will need practical skills - so we do not have stressful, written tests or exams! You will participate in practical quick quizzes, relevant knowledge checks, practical evaluations and daily fun learning experiences. We give you everything you need to know, so you will learn only the material that you'll need. You'll leave the Institute 'job-ready', full of motivation and knowledge.
