At PTA, we believe that when personal development is powered by engagement and excitement, the final results will be greater.

Receive training from industry experts

Part of what makes PT Academy different is our team of dedicated, highly experienced, and educated lecturers who provide comprehensive and personal approaches to your learning. Our instructors will ensure that you start your career with confidence, knowing that the knowledge and skills you have received are those needed in the fitness industry.

More job opportunities

While you can get employment with a Certificate III in Fitness, most businesses in the fitness industry look for graduates with a Certificate IV. Apart from opening up more job opportunities, this certification course is also a pathway to further studies. For example, if you plan to pursue a Diploma of Fitness, you will need a Certificate IV in Fitness and some experience working in this industry.

At PT Academy, we also go the extra mile to set up interviews for our students with some of the most reputable fitness facilities in Australia. For instance, Virgin Active, Fitness First, Fit N Fast, Evolution outdoor training, Snap Fitness, among several others.
