What is the Register of Exercise Professionals?

The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) is the professional body that all fitness instructors, personal trainers and fitness industry teachers register with once they are appropriately qualified.

In order to gain registration you must have completed a REPs recognised qualification which meets National Occupational Standards, have a first aid certificate and be insured. Membership is maintained on a yearly basis through the completion of recognised continuing professional development (CPD) courses.

For further information, see the REPS website.

Who is the awarding body for my course?

Team Bath Training and Development is a training provider that delivers qualifications awarded by Active IQ (AIQ) and 1st4Sport.

These awarding bodies are approved to certify courses in the active leisure industry. They provide a benchmark for credibility and quality for both students and employers.

What is CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. Once you have completed your qualification and you are working in industry you will have to engage in CPD for the rest of your career. This will ensure that you are up to date with latest evidence and trends and that you provide a high quality and professional service.
