Career Pathway Program – ADF
GFT understands that the transition from military to civilian life can be a difficult and challenging time for not only the Defence member but also their dependants and family. One of these challenges is maintaining a quality of life, while finding meaningful employment post Defence.
Having experienced first hand as family and friends have struggled with this transition and having a strong passion for health and fitness, particularly the long-term benefits these have on mental health, our Career Pathway Program for transitioning and ex-Defence personnel was born.
As a Certified Pelleres Base Trainer, you will be working in the health and fitness industry, to help enhance the quality of life for your clients, through improved core strength. With the ongoing support of a personal business manager and the GFT ‘PT PRO’ business system, you are guaranteed an income. As a ‘PT PRO’ you will receive a personalised website, as well as a listing on the GFT Directory and access to our online education portal and team of experts.
Once you are certified, you decide how many hours a week you wish to work and we will provide you with a systemised business plan that will guarantee an income based on those number of hours.
