The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) is currently supporting SPRITO, the sector organisation for sport and recreation, with the review and revision of level 3 national occupational standards for the fitness industry.

The review will result in new and up-to-date national standards covering areas of the industry such as advanced instruction, personal training, nutrition and GP referral.

The standards will make up the level 3 NVQ in Exercise and Fitness and are due to be completed and published by March 2004.

Ben Gittus, qualifications and standards officer at SPRITO, says: “It’s important to review and revise national standards to reflect the growth of the fitness industry and, at level 3, this will accurately reflect fitness roles such as personal training and working with special populations."

“This will improve the supply of qualifications and training and will increase the confidence in the industry of both the consumer and the medical profession.”

The new standards will provide clear categories of registration at level 3. Details: www.exerciseregister.org.uk
