    Certificate IV in Fitness



    Do you want to get qualified to work as a personal trainer and work directly with people on their fitness plans?

    The Certificate IV in Fitness (SIS40215) gives you the skills and experience you need to start work as a personal trainer


    This qualification reflects the role of personal trainers who have specialist skills to train individual clients, or groups of clients, on a one-on-one or group basis, to improve health-related components of fitness in relatively low risk situations. This may include training of older clients and children.

    They have a substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate exercise training; provide leadership and guidance to clients and other staff; and deal with unpredictable situations applying defined guidelines and procedures from the fitness industry and the organisation.

    They work independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems, including monitoring and managing business activities to operate efficiently and profitably.
