Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who perform a range of activities and functions within the fitness industry. These individuals have substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate advanced exercise programs using principles of program design, and progressed anatomy and physiology knowledge to support delivery of functional, effective and safe exercise programs.

They have specialist skills to independently implement current approaches supported by evidence, and establish strategies for the prevention of recurrence of injury with guidance from medical or allied health professionals where appropriate.

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.

Individuals who specialise in Fitness Service Coordination develop collaborative programs across various health and wellness sectors. They have knowledge of relevant local and national health networks, and the skills to build and maintain stakeholder relationships.

Individuals who specialise in Management manage and support a team of fitness professionals. This involves mentoring staff on business skills and technical skills. These individuals have skills and knowledge in marketing and sales; business analysis; time and financial management; recruiting and retaining personal trainers.

Possible job titles include: 

  • advanced personal trainer
  • fitness services coordinator
  • personal training manager.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
