6 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY ONLINE TO BECOME A PERSONAL TRAINER
1. Physical Location is no longer an issue
If you are already working full-time or part-time, then online education provides you with the flexibility to study from the comfort of your home, regardless of your location. Students can enrol in our Certificate III and IV in Fitness from anywhere in Australia and have 24/7 access to their course, be part of our virtual support sessions, and access their assessors online. Studying Fitness online with VFA also means that students can avoid common barriers that come with the face-to-face study. For example, students who live in rural areas no longer need to take time off work to travel to a classroom environment for the day to complete their studies. They can study just like someone living in the heart of a city as long as there is a fitness facility or gym nearby.
2. Flexible self-paced study with 24hr access
When studying online with VFA, students can learn at their own pace, and students are no longer constrained to a face-to-face study schedule. During your study, you have the complete freedom to learn in an environment that suits you! With VFA, all course materials, assessment items and relevant information are accessible electronically. As a result, students don’t have to fight traffic, find parking spaces, leave work early to attend a physical classroom or miss important family time to complete their qualifications. You can study from the comfort of your own home (or coffee shop, library or even at the beach if you want to). One of the best reasons why people love online study, VFA’s course materials and learning resources can all be accessed 24 hours a day, every day of the week. The majority of our students study when it suits them best, whether early morning, at night, days off or weekends. Our students love having more flexibility and freedom combined with no assessment deadlines and less stress.
3. Keep earning while you are learning
At VFA, we’re well aware that students need to maintain their income to go about their day-to-day life, pay the bills and support their families. There is no need to quit your job, make massive changes to your schedule, or sacrifice family commitments by studying online personal training. Most of our students structure their study hours to suit their schedule around their busy life, being a parent or a full-time employee. Once you have completed your Certificate 3 in Fitness, you could work as a Group Fitness Instructor within the Fitness industry whilst completing your Certificate 4 in fitness. This would give you experience in a fitness environment whilst learning and developing your fitness instructing skills.
4. Experience a ‘Student-Centred’ teaching approach
At VFA, we understand that people learn at various paces and styles, which is why VFA’s approach to online learning offers a highly student-centred, tailored teaching approach. We put the student first by providing them consistent support, feedback and guidance, ensuring that students receive support at an individual level from the very start, all the way through to their graduation.
5. Improved Affordability
Another advantage of online learning is affordability. Online learning is much more affordable than face to face learning. This is due to the elimination of the brick and mortar requirements of the business. RTO’s are then able to invest in their student management systems and resources rather than chairs and tables. Having a paperless environment also reduces the cost to the environment.
6. Access to Video Libraries with over 5000+ Exercise Videos
Ever wondered how you learn all your basic movements and advanced exercises when you study online? Well, VFA have you sorted for this as well – Yes, we think of everything! VFA, in collaboration with Physitrack, offer our students the most up-to-date industry knowledge and instructional exercise videos to enhance your online learning experience while you study any of our fitness courses! In addition to this, students also gain relevant industry experience through completing practical activities that can be performed in the comfort of your own home, combined with your local fitness facility or gym setting.
