We have and continue to work in collaboration with and alongside various businesses and individuals in the health, medical and fitness Industries to produce an educational experience like none-other.
We are the first Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to offer Government Accredited and Nationally Recognised Courses in the field of Weight Management and Nutrition.
We have been in operation since 2013 and received Government Accreditation for our Certificate IV in Weight Management in 2015 and then again in 2018 with our Diploma of Weight Management.
Both courses have continued to receive Industry support and meet the demand and have been renewed for a second 5-year period, with the Certificate IV due for its second renewal in mid-2025.
We are the only RTO to offer courses that cover the 3 pillars to overall health and wellbeing: Nutrition, Psychology and Exercise.
Graduates are insurable to work with clients to overcome unhealthy lifestyle habits and behaviours across all 3 areas, provide meal planning options, support their behaviour change, and devise a suitable exercise program to see them succeed!
Or if you are a Personal Trainer, you can fast track this with our short course and increase your earning potential much sooner.
Weight Management is the process of supporting overall health and wellbeing through balancing nutrition, behaviours, and daily movement. Each individual clients needs will differ from Weight Loss, Weight Gain to Weight Maintenance and will naturally occur when their health needs align. For clients to succeed they will require a suitable meal plan, behaviour modifications and an exercise plan, all of which our Graduates can confidently produce in collaboration with and in support of the client.
A Nutritionist specialises and focuses on meal planning for optimal health. A Nutritionist will work closely with clients to overcome unhealthy food choices and behaviours or specific goal achievement by making suitable changes in collaboration with and in support of the individual’s needs. Our Graduates can choose to specialise in this field and will confidently produce plans to suit a variety of clients goals, from general health to elite athletes.
The RTO has passed an official Audit by the department Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) which holds RTOs to a very high standard.
Our Auditors comments were “You are very passionate about what you do and this shows as you have passed with flying colours! There are no non-compliances to report. Well done, you should give yourselves a pat on the back”.
We commend our team for all their hard work and dedication to meeting these very strict standards.

Should we update our pricing we ensure our community is well prepared and notified at the earliest convenience.
