Course Overview

It is time! Time to make a change – for the thousands, if not millions of people who want to improve their fitness, wellness and vitality and become a healthier version of themselves.  Imagine being able to make that happen…

Conquering the battle to manage one’s weight has been a challenge that has grown over the decades, and now the need for a new approach is beyond obvious.  In Australia alone, 56.2 % of women and 70% of men are now considered to be overweight or obese. (Ref: Australian Bureau of Statistics).

If you have a passion to be part of the solution to this ever growing problem, then this is the course for you. Complemented with the latest research about neuroscience and the learning processes of the brain, this course leads the way for change by equipping you with the knowledge to understand why people make the choices they do about food and how you can help them change their habits.

What Our Students Say...

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

It was a very interesting and a valuable experience while studying for my Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance course from Onfit Training College. I got to learn a lot and it really gave me a good grounding in the basics. It enabled me to think about the ways and means to interact professionally at the workplace with my colleagues and patients. I also learned more about the areas which need special attention and focus from my side. I found the course challenging and also very rewarding at the same time. I always got the assignments corrected quickly along with lots of positive feedback from the tutors. I have received tremendous educational support from my tutors – Mr. Jeff Cook and Mr. Dan Darcy.

The fees were very reasonable and I could study and submit my assignments at a comfortable pace. I would highly recommend studying at Onfit Training College to my friends and colleagues.

Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

I started the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance course in April 2017 and didn’t really know what to expect. The course notes and resource book provide very detailed information which is a great help when completing the assignments.  I wasn’t sure how to go about the workshop/role play sections as I’m based in Sydney, but I’ve been able to video my assignments and submit them through to Onfit through Dropbox  It’s been a huge help as a single working mum who is also trying to study! My study placement at CPA was awesome and really tied in what I have learnt, with what would be expected of me in the workplace.  My final assignments have been easier and made so much more sense after doing that practical element.  I would highly recommend the course and Onfit.
