We get a lot of questions from our fabulous current and potential trainees! While this is by no means a comprehensive list, we have compiled the most asked ones for you!
If you are thinking of beginning your education – take some time to read up on the most common queries we have experienced on training for the fitness industry!
(1) I have not studied for years – will I be able to cope?
Absolutely! Many students feel like this when they start, but the course is easy to understand and fun to work through.
You can study at home or on campus and relax knowing that you also have a passionate team of supporters ready to help with any hiccups along the way.
(2) I want to do the course from home – but how much time do I need to invest?
Our courses are designed to fit in with busy lives! Whether you have a few nights or just a few hours a week, you can work through the course at a pace that fits with your lifestyle.
(3) I want to try studying by myself, but can I move to classroom courses if I change my mind once I have already started?
Yes, of course! We offer our courses online, face to face (full timeor part time) and even blended! Whatever way you learn best, we’ll have the solution for you.
(4) What is blended learning?
Glad you asked! Our blended course is the best of both worlds. You study your theory online, but meet once a week for a tutorial and practical session on campus. This allows you to take minimum time out of your busy life, but still gain the practical skills needed with the support of a teacher. Touching base once a week helps you stay on track and experience the benefits of still working with a group of other passionate people.
(5) Do I have to pay for my course up front?
No. We understand that not everybody can afford to pay in full. You can invest in your career by paying upfront with great savings, or take advantage of our interest free payment plan options.
(6) Are the courses nationally recognised?
Yes, yes, yes. The courses you study with Online Fitness are delivered in partnership with The WISE Academy. This means all courses are nationally recognised. But wait…There’s more! Australian qualifications are respected around the world, so even if you travel, your qualifications with us will open doors for you.
(7) Will I feel confident enough to start working straight away?
Yes! We pride ourselves on producing ‘industry ready’ graduates. As a student you will learn to put your knowledge into practice when you undertake the work placement component of our course. This is an essential part of our program. Here you not only practice your skills and gain confidence, you also gain real life experience of how the industry works.
(8) Are there many job opportunities?
There certainly are! With the stresses and challenges people are facing now, health and well being is being valued more than ever. This means ‘Personal Trainers Trained Properly’ are very much in demand!
A high percentage of our students are offered jobs while they complete their work experience, so you can feel very confident about the opportunities our courses will present.
