PT National will offer learners the opportunity to interact with their assigned PT National educator at our Greater Western Sydney College campus or through our various modes of communication should you be located outside of Sydney.

PT National believe in teaching future fitness professionals in the same manner that the Fitness Industry trains their clients. To enable PT National to remain current and educate in an agile learning environment, learners have the ability to participate in one on one support and small group sessions at the learner’s request.

These sessions will be pre-booked by the learner by contacting their educator via email, phone or text to book in a session.

The sessions will address the learner’s questions on practical elements of the course or to allow learners to interact with their educators and use the time to go through queries pertaining to theory and assessments raised in the Experiential Learning Modules (ELMs).

Learners are provided the opportunity to complete practical elements of the assessment via live assessments with other learners and participants or via video mode.

Flexibility is paramount in our teaching and learning model to kick start your career within the fitness industry and we will support you to empower others’ lives with purpose and live a life of contribution.
