    "Being that OCA is a completely online campus, I looked for every reason not to do my course through them. I looked at every AAA professional provider and the people teaching the courses. In the end, of all the providers, I went with the one I least expected to. The service is beyond what any big brand campus gives you, and everything is set out so well. Huge ups to OCA for completely turning me around! I would recommend studying through OCA to anyone who wants a real advantage. Thank you!" - Jaqui

    Sample extract from our online Science of Health and Fitness course:

    This course provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology and interesting applications to exercise. Anyone motivated to develop their understanding of human structure and function for the purpose of advancing their knowledge of how the body responds to exercise would benefit from these studies.

    You will learn about the body’s structure, function and response to exercise and become familiar with the human structure and function for the purpose of advancing your knowledge of how the body responds to exercise.

    You will also get access to a number of government provided information packs from the Department of Health. These brochures are a fantastic resource to provide your clients. Extract from one of these is below:

    Being physically active and limiting your sedentary behaviour every day is essential for your health and well-being. This brochure presents Australia’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for all adults aged 18 to 64 years, irrespective of cultural background, gender or ability. It also provides you with information about the benefits of being physically active, as well as tips and ideas for ways to move more every day. More information about healthy living, including references to other Australian Government guidelines concerning healthy weight and healthy eating, can be found at www.health.gov.au
