GGA National Courses
The various National courses that we teach at GGA reward you with a national certificate that acts as a stepping-stone toward international certification. The information supplied in our National courses is a pre-requisite for most international courses, unless you have graduated from a health and human sciences background. Taking one of our nationally accredited courses will familiarize you with foundational knowledge, curriculum, test format, and the basics of health and fitness theory and practice.
Personal Training (PT)
Personal training involves a lot more than prescribing an exercise program. A Personal Trainer is a role model, a student, a lecturer, a competitor and an avid fitness enthusiast. Anyone with a passion for health, physical activity, and exercise can become a successful Personal Trainer if given the right tools to succeed.
The PT course is the perfect kick-start to an exciting career in the health and fitness industry. This course will bridge the gap between science and application, and is an excellent stepping-stone toward the international Certified Fitness Trainer course also offered at GGA.
