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!

Jane
Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

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

This course came to my attention from my employer at the time and is the Fitness Facility I will be delivering my service through.
They mentioned that Onfit were a “Professional, Friendly, Flexible and Helpful” fitness provider, so I took the leap of faith to see and experience it for myself.

You know what I was skeptical at first because there are so many fitness providers out there are just interested in your money, but from the very first phone call Onfit proved me wrong and throughout the entire course their service and attention to my holistic needs in becoming a Fitness Professional were “Top Shelf” to say the least.

They are a very knowledgeable and caring mix of Fitness, Business and life-skill Professionals that will ensure that anyone willing to apply themselves will reach their full potential in the “Fitness Industry” and I have nothing but praise for the Onfit Team.

Especially their “Online E-tutor System” or their “Telephone Service”; Onfit is very efficient in addressing your needs immediately and if not immediately you can rest assured you will get a call ASAP with time enough to have all your concerns addressed in a professional and courteous manner.

I challenge anyone who seriously wants to become a “Well Rounded Fitness Professional” to give Onfit a try you will not be disappointed.

Certificate III & IV 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.
