One of the key points is a simple one, when choosing a trainer, exercise facility or education course in New Zealand, make sure it is registered with REPs.
Using a REPs registered trainer will ensure that trainers and facilities, this means they follow industry best practice guidelines, meet all education requirements, and continue to up-skill, and are bound by a code of ethics that protects you the end user.
If you are looking to work in the industry, make sure you choose a course that is REPs registered so that you are employable, and nationally and internationally recognised.
