<p>This qualification reflects the role of personal trainers who have specialist skills to train individual clients, or groups of clients, on a one-on-one or group basis, to improve health-related components of fitness in relatively low risk situations. This may include training of older clients and children. They have a substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate exercise training; provide leadership and guidance to clients and other staff; and deal with unpredictable situations applying defined guidelines and procedures from the fitness industry and the organisation. They work independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems, including monitoring and managing business activities to operate efficiently and profitably.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p><strong>Working with Children and/or vulnerable People Requirements </strong></p>
<p>Some sport, recreation and fitness qualifications include units of competency requiring students to obtain a Working with Children Card. Information on the units that have these requirements can be accessed from the <a href="https://vetnet.education.gov.au/Pages/download.aspx?url=https://vetnet… Training Package Implementation Guide</a></p>
<p><strong>This course is Competitive at selected campuses and further Entrance Requirements may apply.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Study modes and durations differ depending on your local campus. Please check with your local campus for more information.</strong></p>
