Why PTA?

We have proven Science, Systems and Tools, qualifications structured around the continual collaboration with 25 of the world’s leading fitness pioneers, continuing education courses and an excellent flexible learning program, but there’s a little more to PT Academy than just being an education provider.

Pt Academy Was Born Of The Desire To Make A Change

With an ailing fitness industry and declining public confidence in fitness services, there was a dire need for an overhaul of the education process. Select indivdiuals regarded as the fitness industry’s most passionate and knowledgeable experts and pioneers were apporached to collaborate towards a better learning system, and thus PTA Global was born.

We now deliver quality fitness education over 15 countries.


PT Academy is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code: 21593). Our courses are Nationally Recognised, and we are also current members of ACPET (Australian Council for Private Education and Training) and Fitness Australia.

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.


Collaborating with fitness professionals also extends to our continuing education courses (CECs). Our educators are professionals who are active in the fitness industry. These individuals are passionate about delivering safe, effective and knowledgeable instruction that can often only come with experience. They understand the power of continual improvement and therefore apply that practice to their own careers. Discover more about the qualifications and experience of our faculty here.

We consider PT Academy big on knowledge, yet small enough to care about our students, treating them as individuals, not numbers. This is indicative of our main core value known as Kaizen or continuous improvement, and is also why our students return time and time again for continuing education.
