Diploma of Fitness - SIS50215

Diploma of Fitness

The Diploma of Fitness SIS50215 accreditation reflects the role of individuals who perform a range of activities and functions within the fitness industry. These individuals have substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate advanced exercise programs using principles of program design, and progressed anatomy and physiology knowledge to support delivery of functional, effective and safe exercise programs.

They have specialist skills to independently implement current approaches supported by evidence, and establish strategies for the prevention of recurrence of injury with guidance from medical or allied health professionals where appropriate. The qualification does not provide the skills and knowledge for an individual to provide advice or exercise instruction to high risk clients, other than to refer the client to an appropriate medical or allied health professional.

This qualification provides a pathway to work in a diverse range of fitness industry businesses including fitness centres, gyms, aquatic facilities, community facilities and in open spaces, where risk management (through risk assessment and hazard control processes) does not already exist.

This involves mentoring staff on business skills and technical skills. These individuals have skills and knowledge in marketing and sales; business analysis; time and financial management; recruiting and retaining personal trainers.

"I would recommend the course to anyone seeking a career in the fitness industry."

Perhaps the best attribute of the course was its flexibility. Often I had the choice of ‘at home’ or ‘in the classroom’ studies. In particular Steve’s first-rate, hands-on knowledge proved invaluable to my learning experience. I would recommend the course to anyone seeking a career in the fitness industry.
