These courses are extremely popular with students who need to choose their own pace of study. They give you the flexibility to accommodate your other commitments or to achieve your qualifications faster, if required.
You will enjoy a course that combines easy-to-follow course notes as well as hands-on practical tasks and assignments.
Each Home Study course also includes your very own personal tutor who will assist you through the program. Meet your future tutors here and convince yourself of their experience and expertise.
Another key element of the course is the “hands-on” experience which you will obtain from the practical placement task. This gives you invaluable industry experience and contacts, which will often lead to your first job offer!

Certificate III and IV in Fitness both require you to complete a practical placement in a gym environment. Here are some of the most common questions students have about the Practical Placement.
Does the college provide the Practical Placement?
In general students source their own Practical Placement opportunities and the most common place to complete that placement is the gym that you are current;y working out at. Securing a placement is usually fairly easy because gyms appreciate the help and it gives them a good look at a possible future employee.
How long is the Practical Placement?
Each placement has to have a duration of 30 hours. That means if you study Certificate III and IV in Fitness you will have to complete 2 practical placements of 30 hours each. You can also complete one 60 hour practical placement as long as both practical logbooks are completed.
Are the Placements paid?
In general the Practical Placements are unpaid, however they are a great opportunity to showcase your skills to potential employers.
Can I do it at any gym?
The most important requirement is that your supervisor at the gym is required to be a personal trainer with a valid Certificate IV in Fitness.
