  • Extensive Support from our Expert Team
  • Industry Approved Theoretical Knowledge
  • Relevant Fitness Business Skills

Why did you choose to study with Onfit?

Onfit provides the flexibility needed to study whilst still living a busy life day to day. Onfit also gives you plenty of time to complete the courses. I finished my Cert IV in one year, with 6 months’ time still available to me if needed, so there was no need to stress about strict time scheduling, as I could just fit in study according to my work schedule. When I got stuck, the e-tutors were great in responding in a timely manner and efficiently answering/dealing with my queries and challenges.

What have you enjoyed about your experience studying with Onfit?

My study was self-paced and encouraged self-motivation and persistence. I enjoyed learning the interesting and detailed content that the Allied Health Cert IV course contained. The course always had varied methods of assessment and a vast supply of resources which were great learning tools. I also enjoyed completing my Boxing for Fitness course, which provided me with another skill to use when personal training my clients – it only took me one month, so it didn’t interrupt my Certificate IV at all and I had completed a new qualification in no time!

What do you plan to do with your qualifications / what are you doing after graduating?

I have already gained part-time employment as a Grade 2 Allied Health Assistant, just one month after finishing my course. I have been given the opportunity to work in a hospital, working two days in the acute ward and one day in the rehabilitation centre; meaning my other two days of the week are available to continue my current Personal Training endeavours.

Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance & Boxing for Fitness

I started the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance course in April 2017 and didn’t really know what to expect. The course notes and resource book provide very detailed information which is a great help when completing the assignments.  I wasn’t sure how to go about the workshop/role play sections as I’m based in Sydney, but I’ve been able to video my assignments and submit them through to Onfit through Dropbox  It’s been a huge help as a single working mum who is also trying to study! My study placement at CPA was awesome and really tied in what I have learnt, with what would be expected of me in the workplace.  My final assignments have been easier and made so much more sense after doing that practical element.  I would highly recommend the course and Onfit.

Debbie S
Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

“I did shop around before settling on Onfit, I looked at the cost, the standard of material and also judge the organisation on their responses. I was super impressed on all three of my criteria, staff got back to me quickly, they were supportive, their cost was very competitive ( in fact they were the most well priced as I compared them with other well know organisations such as TAFE).

The team were really helpful with some RPL as well. Again the RPL process was great and the staff most helpful.

Probably the thing I enjoyed most was the level of professionalism the course offered. I am very fussy when it comes to education as I have studied nursing, exercise science and have a masters in disability rehab, I would certainly put the content up there with some of my higher education studies. I learnt a lot from the course it was comprehensive and I like that Onfit maintained and expected a high from me as a student. Certainly no shortcuts by the education team. I have just graduated and already have been approached by 2 organisations for a position.”

Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

It was a very interesting and a valuable experience while studying for my Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance course from Onfit Training College. I got to learn a lot and it really gave me a good grounding in the basics. It enabled me to think about the ways and means to interact professionally at the workplace with my colleagues and patients. I also learned more about the areas which need special attention and focus from my side. I found the course challenging and also very rewarding at the same time. I always got the assignments corrected quickly along with lots of positive feedback from the tutors. I have received tremendous educational support from my tutors – Mr. Jeff Cook and Mr. Dan Darcy.

The fees were very reasonable and I could study and submit my assignments at a comfortable pace. I would highly recommend studying at Onfit Training College to my friends and colleagues.
