ABOUT REPS IRELAND
PROFESSIONALISING THE FITNESS INDUSTRY
The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs Ireland) has been established to professionalise the fitness industry through the promotion of standards. REPs Ireland ensures that registered members are appropriately qualified with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to perform their role effectively.
REPs Ireland accepts exercise professionals onto the professional register when they fulfil 4 key criteria:
- Achieve qualifications and awards that meet industry standards & have been independently Quality Assured
- Maintain appropriate insurance cover while practicing
- Maintain professional standing by ongoing CPD (continued professional development)
- Adhere to a professional code of conduct
REPs Ireland operates independently of all Education Providers and facilities and works to maintain professional standards in the industry and all approved REPs Ireland Education Providers are independently audited every 2 years.
REPs Ireland is governed by a Council which has been established by Ireland Active, to oversee and support the function of the Register of Exercise Professionals in Ireland. The specific role of the council is to inform the setting of policy and standards in relation to professional registration, provide advice in regard to industry trends, needs and opportunities that will enhance professional and industry development.
