Want to become a personal trainer in Australia? Here’s the step-by-step guide to follow:
Complete a nationally recognized qualification such as a Certificate III in Fitness. This will provide a foundation for you to start your personal trainer journey.
Next, to take it to the next level, complete a nationally recognized qualification in fitness such as a Certificate IV in Fitness (SIS40215). This certification will give you the knowledge and skills you need to work as a personal trainer, and it typically involves a mix of both classroom learning and hands-on training.
In addition to the main certification, you’ll also need to have a current First Aid certificate and complete ongoing professional development to keep your registration as a personal trainer valid. And if you want to stand out, you can also get additional certifications or specialize in areas like sports coaching or nutrition.
