Australian Institute of Fitness

The Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) is a privately owned, registered training organisation, and the largest fitness training organisation in Australia. Beginning operations as the Health Studio Attendants course in Perth in 1979, the Institute became Australia’s first national fitness training provider in 2000, with the merger of five state-based fitness training programs.

AIF is an Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) delivering vocational education and training (VET) courses at Certificate III, Certificate IV and Diploma level. Auditing and registration of Australian RTOs is managed by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), as such AIF’s programs must meet guidelines set out by State and Federal Governments and associated training bodies.[5]
