Prior to enrolment in the qualification, you are required to complete a ‘pre-training review’ to ensure you have the capability to complete the course. The pre-training review will assess your comprehension and understanding of English and your IT capability.
The course is arranged to enable you to complete it in a 3 to 6 month timeframe. However, if needed, you have up to 12 months to complete the qualification (there are no minimum timeframes). If the qualification has not been completed at the end of the 12 months you can apply to re-enrol. Please note, re-enrolment fees will apply.
Australian Fitness Academy Asia will provide you with unlimited support to assist you to complete the qualification in the 12-month timeframe.
On completion of the qualification, you will be issued with the Certified Personal Trainer course. At this point, you will have the skills and knowledge to be able to work as a Personal Trainer. There is also a requirement to complete a First Aid qualification and check whether your country has registration, accreditation and insurance requirements for personal trainers.

If you apply within the 7-day cooling-off period and return a completed Withdrawal Form, you will be refunded the fee paid less a $100 AUD (equivalent in local currency) administration fee.

Integrity of assessment including plagiarism and cheating
AFA Asia is committed to upholding standards of academic integrity and honesty. Plagiarism and cheating in any form is unacceptable and will be acted upon appropriately. Gaining or attempting to gain an accredited qualification through plagiarism, cheating or fraud is an extremely serious action and is considered as a crime.
Plagiarism: To take the ideas or comments of another person and present them as one’s own without providing appropriate acknowledgement. This includes material from any source, staff, students or the internet.
Cheating: To seek to obtain an unfair advantage in written or practical work required to be submitted or completed for assessment.
AFA Asia staff and students both have a duty to ensure all students gain the necessary academic understanding to prevent incidents of plagiarism and cheating.
If an incidence of plagiarism or cheating is detected and the student is unable to provide a satisfactory explanation to the similarities between the student’s work and the original source document, the student may be withdrawn from the qualification and prevented from re-enrolling. Under these circumstances, students will not be eligible for a refund of fees.
