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

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!

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.”

I was recommended to Onfit by a friend, Chris Miller [Onfit Graduate]. The delivery is seamless. They wish no guessing about what is required of me. The amount of information supplied, fully helps with answering assessment tasks. The resources and slides are comprehensive and accurate. The communication with all staff at Onfit is timely, professional and always answers my questions. I am a personal trainer running my own business. I wish to expand and become a healthy lifestyle coach which includes mindset and nutritional coaching. I will need to do continued studies for this.
