"I have no problem recommending Fit Education to both individuals and companies."

I have just completed my Cert 3 and 4 with Fit Education and have found them to have top service, extremely fast and efficient and very open with their communication on what I needed. Having also been able to RPL through the course due to previous studies this further helped me speed up my studies but also gave me a further insight into the fitness industry. I have no problem recommending Fit Education to both individuals and companies.
