FAQs

Am I eligible for government funding?

You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident without previous tertiary qualifications. There are other exceptions, call us if you are unsure.

What are my career opportunities and earning potential?

We invite employers from the fitness industry to speak to you throughout your course. Fitness recruitment specialists HealthyPeople.com.au will provide you with 6 months of free listing. Your income will range from $25 to $100 per hour.

Is the personal training market flooded?

No! Our graduates are constantly being approached by employers. The catch is, employers are looking for ‘great’ personal trainers. Being ‘average’ is no longer good enough.

How long does a Personal Trainer or Massage Therapy course take?

9 weeks full time, 22 weeks part time or up to 12 months through blended delivery.

How will I be assessed? What happens if I fail?

You will be assessed by take home or online questions and practical assessments. If you are unsuccessful the first time, we will provide you with a second and third assessment. If you are still unsuccessful we will give you up to 12 months to study further before being assessed again.

Do I need gym experience to participate in the course?

No, we target our education to someone with no gym background. We would encourage all our students to get their own PT so they can reinforce the learning and get themselves into the best physical condition they can.

Is there a practical component to the course?

Our WYN Training System is designed to deliver half theory, half practical information so you can implement what you’ve learnt as you go, giving you greater confidence.

Am I too old or too young to become a personal trainer?

Young must be 18 years old to obtain registration as a PT. There is no such thing as being too old to be a trainer.

Is WYN affiliated with businesses within the fitness industry?

WYN is affiliated with every major health club in Australia. We will help you find the right ‘fit’ for you when you complete our course.

What makes WYN stand out from other providers?

Not more than 20 students per class. We have outstanding educators and personalised delivery of the course based on your learning style. The WYN Training System integrates both theory and practical training to enhance your learning experience and our WYN Membership has been developed to provide you with great ongoing training through our CEC course program, great networking opportunities as well as free workshops.
