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.
- STEP 1 – QLD residents contact Fitness Institute on 4771 2791 to check eligibility (as above)
- STEP 2 – Once approved, those interested in the Online Certificate III & IV in Fitness Combo can choose from the following options:

The team at Fitness Institute would like to thank the Queensland Government (Department of Employment, Small Business and Training) for their support.
Withdrawal and Refund Policy:
In addition to our normal prices and withdrawal policy, students who withdraw from the course will still be expected to pay the entire cost of the course (the same amount as other full fee paying students would have to pay if they were to withdraw, minus the cost of any unit completions).
