The European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) is an independent process for the registering of instructors, trainers and teachers working in the European health, fitness and physical activity sector. It is a pan-European system, based on independent national registers, which culminate in a central European database.
Through its quality assurance process the EREPS Programme recognises that exercise professionals are qualified to do their job and this gives consumers, employers and partners in medical professions the necessary level of confidence in their professionalism. The EREPS Programme provides the structure at a European level for the recognition of diplomas and certificates for fitness qualification, and supports the importance for the mobility of workers.
Registration with EREPS means that an exercise professional has met the agreed prescribed minimum standards of good practice, including the adoption of a Code of Ethical Practice and that they are committed to raising standards through a process of personal, career professional development.
EREPS is regulated by EuropeActive’s Professional Standards Committee through the accepted European Fitness Sector Qualification Framework (SQF) which is referenced to the European Qualification Framework (EQF). The standards used for EREPS have been developed through extensive consultation and define the knowledge, skills and competencies that an exercise professionals need to achieve registration.
