The best aspects 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!

Some fitness courses are fast tracked and only briefly cover certain skills, however I feel Onfit is very thorough and offer so much support! 

Tim K
Cert IV Online Graduate (November, 2013)

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.  

Alicia G
Cert III Online Student (June, 2014)

I really appreciate all the support that Onfit has given me throughout my cert 3.  Without the encouragement, support from admin, etutors and assessors, feedback, additional information needed for understanding, I would definitely in a totally different head space so Thank You Onfit crew 😀 I look forward to completing my Cert 4 😀

I have a boxercise class waiting for me to take over at PCYC – so it is very exciting!

Tim K.
Cert IV Online Graduate

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.

I have received the best support from my tutor, Jo, in my Cert III. She has been very informative, provided feedback and helped with those questions that I needed a little more understanding.

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