We care about our students and want you to succeed so here are some questions to help you decide what your future looks like.

Do you prefer to work with groups or one-to-one. Do you prefer to work indoors or outdoors?

What motivates you because you will be doing this every day. To gain experience, offer to train your friends in the park or in your backyard. Practice what you preach and learn something new everyday.

Would you like to run your own business one day?

Have you considered equipment required, facilities, marketing, invoicing, ABN? Talk to your Accountant about things to consider as a self-employed fitness professional.

Would you prefer to be an employee of a fitness organisation?

Decide on the top three fitness organisations you want to work for, call them and sell yourself. If that doesn’t work check out the ‘Careers’ section at the bottom of this page for current Industry Jobs.

How will you continue to learn?

Do you have a mentor or access to highly qualified fitness professionals? Find a mentor and place yourself in an environment that is conducive to learning. A learning curve is essential to growth.

Would you like to work overseas?

Maybe working overseas appeals to you. Have a look at our industry partner International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals at If you are looking for information and support for working overseas ICREPS can help you.

  • positive review  I've just finished my Cert 3 with Vast in 3 months. The online delivery made it so easy to fit it around my full time job as well. I'm now onto my Cert 4 and can't wait to be a fully qualified PT. My assessor Stacie has been awesome through the whole course! As I live on the Sunny Coast I've recently joined Vast as a Careers Advisor so if you inquire, you can chat to me about the courses and my study experience first hand.
