  • Work internationally in a variety of fitness and recreation environments including Health Clubs, Sport and Recreation Centres, Holiday Clubs, Cruise Liners and in Private Practice

Note: Students may elect to enrol for the NDIF without first enrolling on the NCIF. The full 2 year NDIF programme includes all NCIF modules. Students are taken through all modules with the goal of achieving the National Diploma.

ADDITIONAL COURSES INCLUDED FOR FREE WITH NDIF – ADDED VALUE

Studying personal training is a lot more than just reading the course content! All of our qualifications requires the student to complete a certain amount of hours of shadowing (work integrated learning). Not only is this required to pass the course but will also be of benefit to you as it will help you obtain real world experience before entering the fitness industry. It will also give you in-the-field experience that you won’t get in a classroom and it allows you to explore the industry before committing to it full time.
