Is this course right for you?
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.
The qualification does not provide the skills and knowledge for an individual to provide advice or exercise instruction to high risk clients, other than to refer the client to an appropriate medical or allied health professional.
This qualification provides a pathway to work in a diversity of fitness industry businesses including fitness centres, gyms, aquatic facilities, community facilities and in open spaces, where risk management (through risk assessment and hazard control processes) does not already exist.
Entry to this qualification is open to individuals who hold a current first aid and CPR certificate and have been recognised as competent through a recognised training program or recognition process against the following units of competency:
SISFFIT001 Provide health screening and fitness orientation

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY
Every single team member I have met from day one is friendly, helpful and goes the extra mile to help students succeed.
The class is informative yet interactive with very experienced teachers.
Adult learners get to know each and form a great team.
Skills Gen helped me arrange placements and are very experienced and professional with handling any roadblocks that stand between you and getting into that career.
Highly recommend it to all my friends as I have gotten so much out of the course.
It has helped with the needed motivated to get an income to help myself and my young son improve our lives and have a brighter future.
Thanks again Skills Gen, you are all superstars!
I cannot recommend Skills Gen enough. When I first made contact with them, they were so welcoming and friendly and wanted the process to be about finding the best course/career suited to me.
The course work is easy to follow online and, in a classroom it is hands-on, taught by some of the best educators I've ever met.
Skills Generation did everything they could to make my experience a stress free one, and when I had issues with applying or even at the end finding placement, they were there to help me through it all.
I have since moved interstate, and the amount of job opportunities I have amazes me and it’s all thanks to the team at Skills Gen!
