Certificate III in Fitness (SIS30321)

This qualification reflects the role of group and gym fitness instructors.

These fitness instructors may plan and deliver group exercise sessions and develop gym-based programs for individuals where the level of personalised instruction and ongoing client monitoring is limited. They work in predictable environments under general supervision.

When instructing groups or interacting with clients, they use discretion and judgment to solve routine issues within the parameters of clearly defined organisational policies and procedures.

This qualification provides a pathway to work as a fitness instructor in settings such as fitness facilities, gyms, and leisure and community centres.

Note: We have contextualised the certification for people who want to train older adults. Any practical tasks in the course have been tailored so they are suitable for people aged over 50.
