Excelling in Assessments at The Institute
January 29, 2015

So you have made the decision to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, becoming a qualified Personal Trainer at the Australian Institute of Fitness. In order to graduate, you need to pass your assessments, so check out these tips from Michael Devlin, Course Coach at the Australian Institute of Fitness, Vic/Tas.

Throughout the Fitness Instructor (Certificate III in Fitness) and Personal Trainer (Certificate IV in Fitness) courses, there are a number of assessments to measure your learning. These can be in form of a knowledge check, use of case study, portfolio of evidence, demonstration, role play or a practical observation. For a student to be deemed satisfactory in the course you must be competent in all areas.

Tip #1

The first thing is to get to know the course outline, so that preparation and study time can be prepared in advance for each assessment.

Tip #2

Attend 100% of classes and if not possible, organise resits. By doing this, you’ll ensure not to miss out on important information you need for an assessment.

Tip #3

Read your Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer and Expedia manuals throughout the course, before classes and assessments to gain extra understanding of concepts and ideas.

Tip #4

Find your best way to learn by using the VAK principle (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic), and repeat the information in this way. This will help you the information sink in.

Tip #5

Experience a wide range of fitness activities targeting stamina, strength and suppleness to increase your fitness knowledge.

Tip #6

Be open to participate in class discussions, and ask questions within the class environment or one-on-one with our experienced coaching team to enhance your learning experience.

Tip #7

Most importantly, experience fitness for yourself. This can be completed through the use of a mentor or experienced Personal Trainer.

The ball is your court now! In order to excel in assessments throughout this course, you need to come with an open mind, a willingness to learn and a positive attitude. Best of luck!
