Course Overview

Developed and delivered by leading fitness experts and educators, the Master Trainer Online Program™ equips you for industry. While holding a Certificate IV in Fitness is sufficient for most fitness industry employers, some require trainers to also have their Certificate III in Fitness in order to deliver their proprietary exercise programs to members and participants. The inclusion of this qualification in the Master Trainer Online Program™, therefore, enables graduates to meet this requirement.

Delivered through a streamlined, engaging and effective learning experience, this program covers all the fitness fundamentals plus much more, including nutritional guidance, anatomy, physiology and exercise prescription. Students also learn training principles and considerations for a range of groups and special populations, such as adolescents, older adults, amateur athletes and people with body composition and endurance-based goals.

The course also has a strong business focus, with units addressing how to prepare for and set up your own fitness business, and the basic sales and marketing skills necessary to acquire clients. You will also learn how to positively influence exercise behaviour, and how to effectively use wearable technology to enhance the service you provide to clients. Plus, you will have access to F.I.R.E. and the Healthy People Fitness Recruitment site which connects students and graduates directly to industry.
