What is REPs?
The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) is a government backed system of self-regulation for all instructors, coaches, trainers and teachers involved in the exercise and fitness industry. It is advised that all graduates of our personal trainer course and other fitness courses should join this register. For more information go to www.exerciseregister.org.
Is Discovery Learning's qualifications internationally recognised?
Our personal trainer and fitness qualifications are recognised in countries that recognise the REPs register. These countries include Australia and New Zealand, South Africa and much of Europe. As a UK REPs member you will automatically be given EREPs status if you decide to work in some areas of Europe. For the latest information visit the REPs and EREPs websites. The USA has no nationally recognised standard; therefore students who wish to look at the USA for employment will need proof of content for employment.
