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.

Cert III in Fitness Graduate

“The staff and tutors are very friendly, patient and helpful always willing to help you with your studies and assessments. I have enjoyed the whole process and look forward to commencing my next course, Cert IV in Weight Management”

Kym T
Cert III & IV in Fitness and Cert IV in Weight Management Student

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.

The best aspects [of studying with Onfit] were being able to learn in a comfortable environment, in a flexible manner. Reliable teachers – able to call as soon as I had a problem and the assistance they offered was brilliant!
