Qualification description

Certificate III Fitness is a two-year course delivered in two modes; acquisition of knowledge and skills relating to the delivery of a training program and the practical application of knowledge and skills. Students deliver fitness programs within their school community. 

 

This course has a heavy theory component and it is recommended for non-ATAR students who enjoy fitness and physical activity and for students seeking employment in the fitness industry.

 

The program includes:

  • Community fitness program
  • Strength and conditioning for athletes and teams
  • Group fitness sessions
  • Personal training adults (e.g. teachers and other staff)

QCE Credits: Successful completion of the Certificate III in Fitness contributes a maximum of eight (8) credits towards a student's QCE.  A maximum of eight credits from the same training package can contribute to a QCE.



​Entry requirements

At enrolment, each student will be required to create (or simply supply if previously created) a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI creates an online record of all training and qualifications attained in Australia.

A Language, Literacy & Numeracy (LLN) Screening process is undertaken at the time of initial enrolment (or earlier) to ensure students have the capacity to effectively engage with the content. Please refer to Binnacle Training's Student Information document for a snapshot of reading, writing and numeracy skills that would be expected in order to satisfy competency requirements.​

This is a two-year course delivered in Years 11 and 12 on site at Park Ridge State High School in partnership with Binnacle.​
