What our students say…

“Provide such valuable experiences and opportunities to learn. You provided me over 160 hours of placement, pushed me when I needed it the most, and continued to answer my many questions to the best of your expertise. It helped confirm what I want to do as a career yet expanded the possibilities within it. Every one of you were genuine, transparent, and incredibly patient…and I feel strongly that I could not have got here without the friendly and knowledgeable staff at ERA. Attending this program is easily the best career decision I’ve ever made.”

“From somebody who is studying physiotherapy and who is working as an AHA, I have to say that the information ERA delivers and the modes of how you deliver it is really really impressive, the staff are incredibly helpful.. I’m recommending the program to quite a few people that I know who are commencing in a health science field (and wanting to head towards physiotherapy).”

“As a current student of Exercise Research Australia, I have had the privilege of being trained by an outstanding team of Fitness educators. In the ever-growing and intensely competitive industry of fitness, ERA has created a unique, dynamic, and consistently evolving program specifically suited to the high demands of industry work. Furthermore, their ability to assist in developing the tools necessary for both personal and industry success is unparalleled. In recent efforts to develop my own future career, it is clear that ERA graduates are in high demand as a direct result of their in depth, yet practical training program and the skill set that ensues. With great pride I give ERA my highest of recommendations for any individual who is committed to success in the fitness industry.”

What your future employers say…

“I have been working in the Fitness Industry for over 13 years and now own my business Alive Personal Training since 2002. With the growth of my business I always look out for the highest quality trainers to represent Alive. One of our points of difference is all our trainers are University qualified, but I have found that the knowledge and practical skills the trainers have learnt at ERA are not matched in any other certification. I now always go directly to ERA for a new trainer for Alive, as I have confidence their trainers will have a better understanding of how to apply the science of exercise & the body, to actual planned workouts made specifically for each individual client. The staff at ERA are professional and the practical equipment and computer programs are all of high standards. I believe ERA is the leader in Certificate III & IV qualifications, focusing on producing quality students.”

If I have done nothing else right in my role as health club manager for Watermarc, I know that forging the relationship with ERA was and continues to be so right in every way.”
