Fernwood Learning are doing a fantastic job, the staff love the training and they are already asking me “what’s next?


I completed my Certificate IV with Fernwood Learning back in 2004. Now as a Club Manager I find Fernwood Learning very accessible and willing to assist with any questions regarding staff training, registration etc. We are always on the lookout for new personal trainers to join our team and are confident in the standard of the Fernwood Learning graduates. Recently one of our members completed her Certificate III and we loved assisting the trainees in club with the practical side of their learning.


I found the support from the Fernwood Learning team amazing. They were always available to speak to me about any questions or concerns I had during my study. I also loved the flexibility of being able to study in my own time and at my own pace. I’m a Mum with young children so finding the time to study included some late nights and some early mornings but it was a choice I had with Fernwood.




Being preferred RTO for Fernwood, Force Training Academy gives students and graduates greater access to our network of 70 clubs nationally, increasing the likelihood of finding a suitable employment position on completion of your qualification. We are looking to expand our partnerships in nearest future.
