If you want to turn your love of sport and exercise into a career, a TAFE course in fitness from CQU can help you gain the skills and knowledge needed to work in sports and recreation roles or become a gym instructor or personal trainer.

Our Certificate II in Sport and Recreation develops your abilities to work with customers at sports and aquatic centres, including assisting with activity sessions, responding to emergency situations, maintaining sports industry knowledge and providing quality service. The Certificate III in Fitness qualifies you as a gym instructor in a fitness centre or gym, giving you foundational knowledge and confidence in a range of exercise instructions and activities. Assist clients in achieving their goals as a personal trainer via the practical Certificate IV in Fitness and gain the confidence and skills to work independently in settings like gyms and community facilities.

    The teaching staff are incredibly supportive. They always answer questions promptly. They explain concepts clearly, and they make practical components challenging, but fun.
