The ‘Entry Units’ and SIS40221 – Certificate IV in Fitness units have practical tasks that can be completed both at home and in a fitness facility.

Some practical assessments will be submitted by video through our online learning portal.

Other practical tasks will require you to use a fitness facility and a mentor to provide 3rd party evidence. The mentor must hold a minimum qualification of Certificate IV in Fitness.

This allows you to complete your practical assessments at a time, in a place (this could be your local gym, private studio gym, local PT, or F45), and with a trainer that suits you.

It is the responsibility of the student to arrange a suitably qualified mentor and Host Facility.

There are approximately 2 – 3 hours of practical assessments that require direct supervision and must be completed with your mentor for the Entry Requirement units.

There are approximately 3 – 4 hours of practical assessments that require Direct Supervision that must be completed with your mentor for the SIS40221 – Certificate IV in Fitness.

Other practical assessments can be completed with your mentor with indirect supervision, and these hours will vary from student to student.

‘Direct Supervision’ is supervision that is provided by an experienced
Fitness Professional to you as a one-to-one type of supervision
while you take part in the requirements for the course.

‘Indirect Supervision’ is accepted when you (the student) are within
the vicinity of an experienced Fitness Professional.

This means that your mentor can still be working whilst providing indirect supervision for some of the required tasks you will complete.

We offer Live Virtual Support. This means one of our assessors is available on Zoom ready to answer your questions in a face to face setting at a scheduled time.

Our Live Virtual Support allows you to ask as many questions as you. Simply book the zoom meeting, get the help you require and continue with your study.

If you are studying late at night and have questions, you message your personal assessor who will answer within a 48hr response time.

Having a personal assessor means you always know who is getting back to you, allowing you to have a partner for the Complete Personal Trainer course journey.

All staff at Vast Fitness Academy are employed on a full-time basis. You are paired with your own personal assessor from start to finish.

We do not use sub-contractors to assess your work.

Once enrolled, you can access all units and resources from the Entry Requirement units. We do not lock your course units or tell you the order in which study must be undertaken. This method of assessing will slow your progress and have you waiting for assessments to be returned before you can move on to the next unit.

Our assessment method allows you to complete the SIS40221 – Certificate IV in Fitness as quickly and easily as possible.

You have 7 months to complete your Fast Track Entry Units.

From the date of graduation from the Fast Track Entry Units, you have a further 12 months to complete your SIS40221 – Certificate IV in Fitness course.

Being self-paced, if you have the time to put towards study, we are here to support you with fast assessment marking from your Personal Assessor and additional Live Virtual Support.

*HLTAID011 – Provide first aid must be completed externally with another training organisation selected by the student. There will be additional costs incurred by the learner to complete the First Aid & CPR qualification requirements.
