Fast-Track Certificate IV in Fitness – SIS40221


Online, Virtual Face-to-Face

Full Time, Part Time


“My favourite element of the course is the Zoom sessions (during Covid lockdown). Still having that face-to-face time is good as times are tough right now on anyone in personal learning but I feel like the Zoom sessions that Jodie, Matt and Cass have put together have been really helping to keep that one-on-one experience.”
