How Does The Orphic Education Certificate III/IV In Fitness Work?

What To Do If You Can’t Afford It?

What if I can’t make some of the classes?

Some of our facilities have the equipment to film the classes for you to watch back in your own time.

We can confirm which facilities do on request.


When does the course start?

Access to our online learning system begins as soon as you sign up so you can essentially get started immediately. 

You will receive your login information within 24-48 hours of signing up.

Practical class dates and locations can be seen here at the bottom our courses page.

We encourage all students to get familiar with our online LMS as soon as possible to build a basic framework of theoretical knowledge in preparation for their practical classes.


Who Is Orphic Education, Should You Choose Us & What Do We Offer? 

How long does it take to complete the course?

The average completion time ranges from 6-12 months.

Completion time is variable and dependent on your prior knowledge and experience in the science, health and fitness field. The more you have, the faster you will be able to progress through the modules.

We find that students that dedicate around 15-20 hours per week can complete their Certificate in around 6 months.

You don’t technically have to wait until your practical classes finish to receive your Certificate III/IV. Although it is very rare, IF you complete all of the assessments and modules you may receive your Certificate prior to completion of your 30 weeks of practical classes.

Technically there is no time limit on how long you can take to complete your Certificate. 

Why an Online-Only Cert III/IV In Fitness Could Be The Biggest Mistake Of Your Career

Orphic Education is one of the only RTO’s that do NOT deliver an online-only course. Why?

The foundation of a personal trainer’s skillset relies on the practical application of solving problems, communicating and coaching IN-PERSON.

We also notice people best learn and retain information when challenged in a dynamic real-life setting.

This is why we deliver 30 weeks of weekly practical classes on top of our online learning system.

With that being said, most Certificate III/IV’s in Fitness in Australia has a compulsory online component that entails you completing a variety of modules.

Inside these are modules are the foundations of theoretical knowledge you need to know as a PT.

Within these are assessments such as multiple-choice and short answer questions and a variety of case study type assessments, some of which you complete in person under the guidance of a qualified personal trainer.

This will give you the opportunity to test and practice the skills of program writing, exercise prescription and implementation.

Many of these assessments are completed within your practical classes in combination with any other gym or trainer that you seek out.
