Why Study with Onfit?
  • Flexible, Quality Online Courses
  • Extensive Support from our Expert Team
  • Industry Approved Theoretical Knowledge
  • Relevant Fitness Business Skills

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.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the online course and will have no hesitations in recommending Onfit to others. I will also look at completing more training online through Onfit. I have found all staff extremely friendly and helpful.

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.

Kelsey Taurins
Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance & Boxing for Fitness

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.
