    Some questions for PTs in Australia

    Where is the best place to get qualified? I have been doing some research on the net but all institutions look so similar. How can I tell which one is better?

    Also, none of them provide prices. Either you have to call them or them call you. Can anyone give me a rough estimate for certificates 3 and 4?

    Thanks

    Basically there is TAFE and then there are a stack of private providers. So it depends which city you want to do it in.

    You're looking at a few thousand bucks. Avoiding telling you the price in case they scare you off is unfortunately part of the fitness industry.

    Any service, including education, can be good, fast or cheap. Usually only one of those, very rarely two, never all three. If you genuinely want a career in the industry, choose good over cheap or fast. Again, depends where you're going.

    Hey KyleAaron, thanks for your reply. I've been reading a lot of your posts in this forum lately and they've been very insightful and helpful.

    I'm in Sydney and I'm wondering if theres a provider that provides work placement as well?

    Some of the private ones are associated with gyms or PT studios, so they just place you there.

    Check out the YMCA.

    How much do you guys charge there? For a private session that is...
    Bodybuilding is an individual sport so don't strive to look like someone else.

    if you get a course with AIPT they give you work placement. if you can get a placement in a Goodlife gym then apparently they offer a guaranteed job upon completion. look it to it bruv
