The REPs UAE Occupational Standards for the health and fitness industry

REPs UAE is based on the fitness industry standards which have been developed for each area of exercise and fitness instruction which is covered by the register.

Occupational Standards describe the skills, knowledge and competence needed to work as an instructor in the fitness industry. REPs UAE is a guarantee that instructors are competent and qualified against these standards. Instructors on REPs UAE have demonstrated that they can work to these standards, normally by gaining an approved qualification which teaches and assesses everything in these standards. The standards are based on the “ICREPs Global Standards�? developed by the International Confederation for Registers of Exercise Professionals, the global organisation for fitness registers that REPs UAE is a member of.

The standards can be used by education providers do develop courses, employers to organise staff structures, or instructors themselves to map their skills and competences and plan their career.
