What Our Students Say...

“I want to complete my courses so I can become a personal trainer and a gym manager and just help people further their lives and fitness aspirations.

The trainers, they were all really excellent with all of us and it was the ease of access to the classes, it was very easy to attend all of my classes.

The Virtual Reality Classes definitely added an era of personability because you get to talk and bounce ideas off of the trainers and instructors even though it’s a classroom, you still get a nice different feel than you would if it was an online lecture.

I would recommend Onfit & Virtual Classroom Tutorials to anyone who wants to do their online study because they can’t make it into a classroom or something, it gives you that really good option to have the classroom experience.”

Nick C
Certificate III & IV in FItness (+ Virtual Reality Tutorials)

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.
