    Q. How do you become a personal trainer?

    The Elite Personal Trainer (ePT+) course offered only by the Australian Fitness Network provides you with a total solution for becoming a personal trainer. As the leading Australian personal training course, you will earn both the Certificate III in Fitness (SIS30313) and Certificate IV in Fitness (SIS40210), and your qualifications in fitness instruction will be nationally and internationally recognised.

    Q. How long does it take to do the ePT+ (Elite Personal Trainer + Course)?

    You will have a total of 14 months to complete the Certificate III and IV in fitness, plus the group exercise component.

    Q. I have a full time job and I can't afford to take time off from work to study, how can I do the ePT+ course?

    The ePT+ course is delivered entirely online, allowing you the flexibility to work at your own pace, when you have the time. Many of our current students and graduates have full time jobs and family commitments so we understand that you need to be able to fit study into your busy life.

    ePT+ has been designed to to do exactly that, providing you with the freedom to choose whether you study during the day or at night, through the week or on weekends, from whatever location suits you best!

    Q. When can I start?

    You can start at anytime with the online ePT+ course. There is no set start time.

    Sign up for a trial here  or you can get started here.

    Q. Do I need to have a high level of fitness to do the ePT+ course?

    Completing the ePT+ course doesn’t necesarily require a high level of fitness..

    Mostly it requires a deep seeded desire to learn and grow.  Working through the ePT+ course will help you reach a greater level of understanding of health and fitness which you will then use to inspire others and yourself.

    Q. What help will I receive through my studies?

    We realise that the key to success in any study journey is support. Surrounding yourself with like-minded, passionate people is a great step to creating and sustaining a successful fitness career. So right off the bat we make sure that happens. From the moment you start your studies our team of Online Trainers will be right alongside you and available to assist whenever you need it.

    So, although your study is self-directed, you're definitely never alone. We are here for you as much or as little as you want us to be. Anytime. Always.

    Q. When can I begin training people professionally?

    As soon as you have finished the ePT+ course and graduated you are a qualified trainer.

    And once that certificate is in your hands, as an ePT+ graduate you're still not alone (unless you want to be).

    Anytime you need help or have a query or question about the industry or training, you can still contact our team of Online Trainers for advice, information or simply a friendly ear.

    PLUS, because we understand that your course materials are important resources, even after you’re fully qualified, we will ensure that as long as Network delivers the ePT+ course you will have lifetime access to the e-learning site. How good is that?

    And of course, support for your career also comes in the form of your 12-month Network membership, which provides you with loads of resources to help your studies and your career, including:

    • All the CECs you need to re-register with Fitness Australia
