Tim K
Certificate IV in Fitness Graduate

What motivated you to study the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance? I was always interested in providing support and assistance to patients alongside a qualified health professional, a career in Allied Health offers me the chance to make a real difference. Gain the knowledge and skills to implement treatment plans, perform a range of administrative and clerical duties, and communicate effectively with health professionals and patients of all ages. Learning directly from Allied Health professionals with practical work placement and gain the hands-on skills I need to work confidently in the industry.

What was the best part of your studies? The best part of my studies was to see every day and every week how much I have progressed knowing there is always someone at Onfit Training College that can help with any issues.

What did you find challenging? It was very challenging, all the new subjects, sentences, words, abbreviations that I never knew or heard before.

Got planned for the future now that you’ve graduated? Working as an exercise physiologist

Do you have any advice for someone that is considering studying a Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance? If you consider a career in allied health! you must love and enjoy helping people.

Udi Solomon
Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

“I want to complete my courses so I can become a personal trainer and a gym manager and just help people further their lives and fitness aspirations.

The trainers, they were all really excellent with all of us and it was the ease of access to the classes, it was very easy to attend all of my classes.

The Virtual Reality Classes definitely added an era of personability because you get to talk and bounce ideas off of the trainers and instructors even though it’s a classroom, you still get a nice different feel than you would if it was an online lecture.

I would recommend Onfit & Virtual Classroom Tutorials to anyone who wants to do their online study because they can’t make it into a classroom or something, it gives you that really good option to have the classroom experience.”

Nick C
Certificate III & IV in FItness (+ Virtual Reality Tutorials)

Why did you choose to study with Onfit?
I had previously worked in health and following a break wanted to retrain in a different area. I knew that I wanted to do Allied Health Assistance and it was just a case of finding a reputable RTO. I was new to Brisbane and saw the advertisement for Onfit online.
On contact I found the staff very friendly and the sign-up process was all very straight forward.

What have you enjoyed about your experience studying with Onfit?
I’ve really enjoyed working at my own pace and knowing that support was there if I needed it. I had a health background and so a lot of the content was familiar to me. I think this helped and I was really happy that Onfit assessed my prior study and gave credits where appropriate.
The submitting of assignments was very straight forward and there were options for practical assessments if students were unable to get to onsite practicals.
What do you plan to do with your qualifications / what are you doing after graduating?
I am very fortunate, to have secured a part-time position at one of the large teaching hospitals in Brisbane.
I am a mature aged student and so this is particularly exciting for me.
It is never too late and I would encourage anyone seeking a new direction maybe later in life, to go for it!
