Do you want to kick-start a career in fitness, but aren't sure about
signing up to study because you're worried it will take too long, or
that you won't be able to fit study around your lifestyle and commitments?
You want flexibility to study at your own pace, we hear you!
At TAFE NSW Northern Beaches, you can choose to fast track your
studies, so that you make your way through your Certificate III or
Certificate IV in as little as eight weeks.
"The certificates are each 16-week courses. But we've managed to
reduce the time it takes to complete each course, to eight
weeks," said James Skeates, Sport, Fitness and Outdoor Recreation
Teacher at TAFE NSW Northern Beaches.
"When I say eight-weeks though, that's eight intense weeks of
study. It's a lot of work, a lot of assessments and a lot of exams, so
you really have to be dedicated and committed to make it through the
course that quickly. Some students enjoy this, and it really suits
them," he added.
If you have a lot of free time, a fierce determination and a desire
to blaze through your study, you could also potentially complete both
your Certificate III and Certificate IV courses at TAFE NSW Northern
Beaches in just six months!
If you have lots of commitments however, you can choose to take
16-weeks to complete your course allowing you more time to fit study
around your life.
"People who want to take a bit more time, can choose to do each
course over 16-weeks. For example, they might attend the first eight
weeks of classes, and then do their assignments and hand them in over
the next eight weeks," said Skeates.
If you need to plough through your studies, or take things a bit
slower, we can help.
"We can tailor programs for people who are keen to finish early,
and those who need things a bit slower to fit around work and their
lifestyle," Skeates said.
If you want to work in fitness but need flexibility, we can give that
to you. So what are you waiting for! Be ambitious, apply
for study and kick-start the fitness career you've been dreaming of!
