Welcome to the Mark McGaw Institute of Sports Science, a certifying institute for personal fitness trainers and sports conditioners

MMISS has been certifying fitness professionals for 20 years, and has certified student all over the world. The standard set by the Australian government is high but MMISS exceeds this standard.

Fitness education cannot be learned by theory alone. Practical learning is a very important part, if not the most important. For example, when getting your drivers licence, you know you cannot drive a car after just doing the theory component. It is based on practical experience. With our method of online learning, within the theory aspect of the course we have implemented a practical, progressive learning component. For example we won’t simply ask you “what is a health questionnaire”? What we will ask you to do is interview a real client and go through the process and submit the results of your interview as your practical task.

Certificate III in Fitness (Gym Instructor) is the entry level for your new career. The next stage is to move into the Certificate IV in Fitness (Fitness Trainer). The Diploma of Fitness certifies you as a specialist in fitness and completes your formal career pathway in the Fitness training package.

Technical Support for the courses can be utilised by several methods. You may use one or all methods (listed to the left) to give you the best experience for success during your studies.

One way to identify a method or methods that may best suit you, is to remember back to your school days and what methods of learning you found most rewarding. If you enjoyed a particular way of study and use it again, then most likely you will stick with the Fitness and Personal Training course.

Our fully qualified fitness workplace assessors will always be on hand to help. No question is too hard and we understand you may feel embarrassed to ask the really easy questions. We are happy to help so that any roadblocks can be overcome for the full comprehension of the unit.

You may also ask questions on the blog so other students and staff can answer for all to see.

This method of technical support is quick and effective. The turn around for a response in most cases is the same day. If your workplace assessor does not return your email then there may be up to a 48 hour response. If a response has not been given by the next day, please resend the email as we pride ourselves on same day help. A call to us on 02 9692 0455 to let us know a support email has been sent will ensure another workplace assessor can take this support request if the assigned mentor is in lectures.

Just call us on 02 9692 0455 to organise face to face time with a Fitness Workplace Assessor for one on one support. You must have all the questions in order and ready to go before the meeting so time effective responses are maintained. Another option is for the student wishing to travel to our office/gymnasium at Pyrmont and spend a day or a few hours practicing exercise techniques and sitting and studying on site with other students.

This requires the student to:

1: call or email MMISS for an appointment so we can organise a phone meeting. If a Fitness Workplace Assessor is available the support will be immediate. If not, a convenient time for both student and Fitness Workplace Assessor will be organised.

2: The student must have all questions to be asked ready to go.
