Certificate III & IV in Fitness
SIS30321 & SIS40221
Both in one go! You need to have done a SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness to qualify for a SIS40221 Certificate IV in Fitness, so the majority of our students do the combined course, unless they already have a SIS30321 Certificate III in Fitness from previous study.
HEAR FROM OUR PAST STUDENTS
"I work in the finance industry and still enjoy it, but I was missing something an office job couldn't provide. I thought about becoming a PT for several years but always found too many barriers (time, money, effort). I then started training at Fitness Playground, met the amazing and highly qualified trainers and discovered FP Academy. I made a call, and remembered being told: 'Don't wait forever to let your dreams come true', so finally, I signed up!”

“I had been working as a warehouse manager for a food packaging company, there wasn't a lot of opportunity to grow. I had been training at the gym my whole adult life and I loved being at Fitness Playground so I enrolled in my Cert III & IV with FP Academy. With live clients, I was able to put myself in the shoes of a coach and learn how to do it before I was expected to coach. I now have a job at Fitness Playground and I love it.”
Kareim A Age: 32
“I was an international airline pilot. Covid-19 gave me some time off from flying and showed me how down and fatigued I'd become. It was time for change. I originally signed up for an online Cert III & IV course but I came across FP Academy. Their course seemed much more relevant to what I needed to know, so I took a detour. The practical demonstrations and mentoring has given me solid foundations that I wouldn’t have been able to get online.”

What are your payment options?
We take a small deposit when you begin, then a payment won’t be taken for 7 days, so if you decide the course isn’t for you within that time, you can withdraw your enrollment free of charge (and have the deposit refunded). We like to provide flexibility when it comes to payment options, to make the course accessible. We have payment plans that range from 10 weeks to up to 35 weeks, giving you access to the course for less than $150 per week.
Why is this program the best way to get started as a trainer?
We equip students with the practical skills they actually need to be great coaches, not just theoretical fitness knowledge. Studying at Fitness Playground Academy also guarantees you a job interview with Fitness Playground, which is continuously recognised as being one of the best places to work in Australia.
