Course Overview

With 15 competencies neatly packaged into 8 dynamic subjects our interactive online Cert IV goes into detail on topics such as:   strategies for success, programming for athletes -both on and off season, how to minimise and prevent injuries, and specific programming for managed conditions such as pregnancy and diabetes. You’ll also learn how to work with Allied Health Professionals such as physios and GP’s to ensure your clients get professional support using a team approach.

Not only will you learn about these (and many other) key industry topics, but using the state of the art online portal, you will be immersed in the world of the personal trainer through interactive case studies and ‘real world’ assessments in which you master the daily challenges all personal trainers face in creating a client base, developing strong and lasting relationships, keeping clients motivated and identifying when programs need to be changed.

Using the same successful strategies as we do in our Cert III, the Cert IV theory can be studied anywhere, anytime, and you can review the material as many times as you like.  Onfit’s courses can be viewed on mobile devices such as I Pads as well as on computers. At Onfit you will also be allocated an online e-Tutor to support you as you study.

*If you feel you learn better with a bit more face to face support, ask us about our blended courses which include classroom learning.

Whichever option you choose, the professional team at Onfit will support you on your journey and your experience will be enriched using interactive online tools, videos, quizzes and demonstrations.

While most assessments are completed online, no Personal Training course would be complete without practical experience too.  Practical placement in the industry is an important part of preparing yourself for your new career. We encourage you to seek out placements at gyms or clubs you want to work at, as many of our students are offered employment as a result of their work experience. Our easy to follow workplace log book helps you put your knowledge into practice with fitness professionals who walk the talk! Finally, when you feel ready, you can either (1) attend two workshops with us at the Brisbane or Gold Coast campus or (2) film yourself completing the practical tasks we need to see in order for you to complete your qualification.

You‘ll have a full year in which to complete your Certificate IV in Fitness before you graduate and  go on to start your career as a quality personal trainer,  making a positive difference to the lives of your clients. What could be more rewarding? Go on; take the next step to LIVE YOUR DREAM!
