In Australia the minimum qualification to work in the industry is a Certificate III in Fitness. This won’t allow you to do any “personal training” as such, however it does enable you to take some group exercise classes and boot camps etc.
In order to work in a major gym, health club, personal training studio or able to train clients one-on-one, you will require a Certificate IV in Fitness.
So in a nutshell . . . . the minimum requirement to instruct any group exercise is a Certificate III in Fitness and to gain employment in a gym and work as a personal trainer, you will need to achieve a Certificate IV.
