  • PT Academy has designed the TRX CEC courses so well and have really lifted the standard for CEC's!  The courses are all taught in a fun, interactive and relevant way!  Everyone became really engaged!!!  Right from the word go, all I could think about was 'I can't wait till I get to come to the Rip trainer course'! I learnt so much and have a newfound love and appreciation for this tool! Keep it up!

  • The PT Academy offered me a comprehensive and enjoyable way to achieve my fitness trainer qualifications. The option to go online was convenient and easy. The materials provided were detailed yet gave clear, concise definitions and explanations. I thoroughly enjoyed the course.

    Caroline Piretta – Student

    Rebecca Skaer – Student
  • Highly recommend the course. The teaching is at the forefront of the latest research. As a podiatrist, I've been able to incorporate aspects into private practice.

  • Being very new to the industry we really didn't have a leg to stand on by the way of prior knowledge of training institutions. In the end we chose PTA for two main reasons: (a) we never had the hard sell put on us, and (b) PTA were very flexible with payments. The fact that the course ended up being such a wonderful experience for us was just a big bonus. The content was very thorough. The trainers were very understanding and patient. We got a very personal service and in our opinion there can't possibly be a better value for money training institution out there. We recommend PTA to everyone who is interested in hearing about it.

    Tessie Piggott – CIII Part-Time Student
  • Completing my Cert 3 in fitness was made easy with PT Academy. Everything you need was supplied and in easy to understand format. The tutorials were excellent and cleared up anything that I may have found hard to understand just reading out of a book. Anytime I had a question there was somebody available to help me out. I would definitely recommend PTA to everyone.

    Kelly O’Brien – Student
  • PTA is a great way to obtain cert 3 and 4 efficiently, while still learning everything you need to know and more!

    Nicole Pearce – Student
  • The course is presented in a very professional manner and you really feel you are receiving the best sources of information, as lectures are presented by those specific to the field. Everything is very easy to follow and great people to communicate with. I am looking forward to further education with PT Academy.
