Certificate IV in Fitness

National ID: SIS40215 | State ID: AWN7

 

Fitness and health are becoming an increasingly important aspect of society. Fitness instructors and personal trainers are leading the way as advocates of a healthy lifestyle.

If fitness is your passion, this is the course for you.

The inclusion of special advanced fitness programming skills gives the Certificate IV in Fitness an exclusive feature only available to North Metropolitan TAFE students. This is a major advantage and ensures you will have a massive advantage over graduates from other training organisations. In addition to personal training, you will gain children's trainer and older adults trainer specialisations.

SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness is a prerequisite for this course.

The Certificate IV in Fitness has become the minimum qualification for the vast majority of employers and clients for instructors.

Graduates will be able to work independently as personal trainers in their own business or within a recognised fitness organisation.

This is why our courses are recognised by the local WA fitness industry as being high quality and producing graduates who are well prepared for work.

In 2018 the Certificate IV in Fitness may be taught across three of North Metropolitan TAFE's campuses; Leederville, Northbridge and Joondalup so some travel will be required.

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

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
