Quality education and training for the UAE fitness industryTraining Home

REPs UAE works with a network of quality Training Providers whose courses have been approved against international standards.

Completing one (or more for multiple registration levels) of these qualifications offered by the Providers listed below, means an individual is eligible to register with REPs UAE.

Which qualification should I choose?

REPs UAE does not recommend one qualification provider over another. We do however suggest that before you make your decision, to do your own due diligence! Ask questions and ask around. Some suggestions are:

  1. Contacting the qualification provider directly to find out more about their qualification. This could include information on how they deliver their qualification, how they support their students, or how they undertake their assessments and exams.
  2. Talking to other students and graduates of the qualification. Ask the qualification provider for student references. Check out the qualification providers website and social media page.
  3. Do an online/Google search to find out more about the qualification provider
    Please note: REPs is unable to provide any assurances as to the on-going financial viability of any qualification provider, so it is important that you do your own checks.
Other important information about qualification recognition.
  1. If your qualification was completed more than 10 years ago, evidence of working in the industry and proof of continued education will be required for verification purposes. Please apply for REPs registration in the normal way, and we will let you know if there are any further steps required.
  2. REPs UAE do not accept purely online qualifications, depending on which online qualification was completed, either an up-skill, or full course with one of the Providers listed below would be required.
Pre-approved Training Providers
    Training Providers which have been marked as pre-approved have been in operation in the UAE for less than one year, however they have met all of the criteria for approval by REPs UAE, including having a ll of their qualifications accredited by a recognised International Awarding Organisation. They are listed as pre-approved for a period of one year before they are listed alongside other a pproved and established providers.Accredited REPS entry qualifica tions from pre-approved providers have the same status as more established providers-their qualifications will give entry and full status on REPs UAE without any restriction. All graduates from pre-approved providers should apply and join REPs as normal
