There's never been a better time to start a career in Fitness

The fitness industry is growing due an increased focus on healthy lifestyle choices. By completing this course you will have the skills and training to work in gyms or recreation centres as a Fitness Instructor. You will be able to provide exercise instruction, gym programs, basic nutrition advice, and help people achieve their personal health and fitness goals.

Practical training will be conducted in our fully equipped gym facilities at either the Northbridge or Joondalup campus. You will be required to complete on-the-job experience in our Northbridge gym or by work placement in industry (Joondalup students). This may include early morning, lunchtime or late afternoon shifts outside of normal class time. You will also need to obtain your Senior First Aid certificate with another recognised training provider.

At our Northbridge campus we deliver classes over three to four days per week between Tuesday and Friday 9am - 4pm.
If you enrol in the Certificate III in Fitness at our Northbridge campus and complete this six month long qualification you can then continue your studies for a further six months to also gain the Certificate IV in Fitness qualification, equipping you to become a fully qualified Personal Trainer.

At Joondalup campus we are offering a new program to help you gain the prerequisite units from the Certificate III in Fitness within 10 weeks to be able to enter the Certificate IV in Fitness, allowing you to achieve the Certificate IV in Fitness in 9 months, for more information about this new program click here.

Fees and charges

View our Indicative Fees list 

Local full time students

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

 

International Students

Check TAFE International WA to confirm this course is available to international students. You will pay your tuition fees to TIWA.
