RPL Fitness Upgrade


Despite your skills and many years of experience, the industry body has told you that a fitness qualification upgrade is required ? Sound familiar ?

Like so many qualified trainers who have been in the industry for many of years, maybe you tried to register with the industry body and they told you that your qualification is ‘out of date’.

Of course it can be frustrating, it doesn’t mean you are not qualified. In fact. after spending many years in the industry you probably know more now than when you first started.

Don’t panic.

Global Fitness Institute takes the pain out of upgrading or updating your qualifications by taking into account your experience and skills.

Not dissimilar to our regular RPL process, the Upgrade simply requires you send in details of:

  • Current Qualifications
  • Any additional formal training completed since graduating
  • Any short courses, workshops, in-house training
  • work experience, particularly in the last 3 years
  • A detailed CV and supportive documentation from present/past employers

Obviously, the Fitness training package updates every 5 years or so, therefore, the version you completed may be quite different from the current one.

The further back you did your training, the more gaps in the two versions may exist and where they can’t be filled by the evidence provided, gapt training may be required.

Although upon completion you would be issued an entirely new and current Fitness qualification, we do not charge the full price of your new qualification.

Upgrade is generally only $500 per qualification.

We waive the enrolment fee for Global Fitness Institute Graduates.

We only charge the enrolment fee once for non-GFI graduates, even if Upgrading both your Certificate III and IV in Fitness

Gap training is generally charged at only $100 per unit, if required at all.

If you want us to perform an Upgrade RPL assessment first prior to parting with the cost, we are also happy to do that at the regular cost of $300 for RPL. This fee is deducted from the cost, should you wish to proceed. It is not an extra fee.

Contact Us today and get the upgrade process started or fill in the details below.


    Note RPL Only fee is deducted should you proceed to apply for Upgrade within 30 days after RPL assessment.
    Fees are not refundable.
