Certificate 3 Guarantee

Fitness Institute is a Pre-Qualified Supplier of the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee. The Certificate 3 Guarantee helps reduce the cost of enrolling in a course, such as the Certificate 3 in Fitness (SIS30315) offered by Fitness Institute.

Certification Outline

Students wishing to apply for the Certificate 3 Guarantee must:
  • be aged 15 years or older;
  • be no longer at school (with the exception of school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 undertaking a VET in School (VETiS) program);
  • permanently reside in Queensland;
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency or a New Zealand citizen; and
  • not hold and not be enrolled in a certificate 3 or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.

More information on the policies and guidelines for the Certificate 3 Guarantee, can be obtained on the site for the Certificate 3 Guarantee by the Queensland Government

More information on eligibility for Visa holders can be obtained by visiting the Support for Specific Groups web page and by clicking on the Migrants and Refugees link.

Fee Structure and Co-Contribution amounts:

All students must pay a co-contribution fee towards the cost of their certification as listed here.

Note that discounted prices are only relevant on full completion of all Certificate 3 units of competency. 

The SIS30315 – Certificate 3 in Fitness that Fitness Institute delivers (15 units of competency plus one Direct Credit – First Aid HLTAID001) will mean approximately $1,500 can be rebated off the cost once completing the Certificate 3 in Fitness. The cost per student may change based on locations, how the course is delivered (e.g. Face to Face or Online) and whether the student is available for a concession rate.
