Train Fitness International

The inception of the modular based training courses provided by TRAINFITNESS (formerly Fitness Industry Education Limited) occurred in Australia by the Institute For Fitness Professionals in the 1980’s. The courses were based on the then current industry standard for certification of an Australian Fitness Leader as set out by the Australian Fitness Accreditation Council.

The Institute gained government recognition for its work with long term unemployed through training individuals with an interest in fitness and seeing them through to sustained employment in their chosen field.

Over time, courses were developed and updated continuously to ensure students received the most up to date education pertaining to both knowledge and industry requirements. A main focus of the directors has always been the use of modern technology to enhance student’s learning experience.

In 1998, The Institute For Fitness Professionals set up a branch in the United Kingdom, EdFit Ltd. All modules were mapped against the UK standards for professional certification, the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) standards, and were modified to suit. Centre Approval by the Government Awarding Body, Central YMCA Qualifications, was granted in late 1998 and courses commenced.
