Fast Track PT

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.

A qualified Personal Trainer will gain the relevant knowledge to 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.

This qualification provides a pathway to work in a diverse range of fitness industry businesses including fitness centres, gyms, community facilities and in open spaces, where risk management (through risk assessment and hazard control processes) does not already exist.
