Choosing Onfit Training College was the right choice. When I shopped around for which online PT course I wanted to do, I looked at a lot! I didn’t rush into deciding either. Many of the course providers I contacted had pushy salespersons trying to offer “special deals” only valid that day. Not Onfit. I felt they were genuine and truly wanted the best for me too.
Their online course material is very user friendly and their free app for the Ipad means I can have my study material anywhere, anytime. No need for a wi-fi connection. I have been able to study sitting in the car waiting for the kids at music, waiting at a doctor’s appointment (you know they are never on time). Any spare time, I read the next topic.

If you want a reliable, informative and supportive course provider – choose Onfit Training College.

Kathryn Y
Certificate III in Fitness Graduate

I really liked how I could do my studies online at my own pace and if I needed any help that you guys were only a click away and explained everything really easy for me to understand, I also liked the fact that I could pay my course off in payments as alot of places wanted the cash up front, When I spoke with Charis at the start she didn’t come across pushy and just wanted money as I have had experience with other places that I looked at doing my studies.

Certificate III & IV in Fitness Graduate

“I’m loving studying with Onfit. Everyone is so helpful & friendly and if I ring and ask a question I always leave the conversation feeling confident. I’ve learnt so much.”

Julie L
Certificate III & IV in Fitness Student

“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.”
