Joining with Qualifications from an ICREPs country

Instructors wishing to join REPs UK with qualifications gained from the International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPs) may join with their relevant Register's membership certificate.

This letter of portability (or overseas membership certificate) should be sent with your application form and additional supporting documents to the address below.

The members of ICREPs are the registers for exercise professionals operating in: UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Canada, UAE, Ireland, Poland and Belgium.

ICREPs has three main functions:

1. To facilitate international portability/recognition for exercise professionals worldwide

2. To provide information and support to countries and regions that wish to develop registration systems for exercise professionals

3. To facilitate sharing of best practice systems between ICREPs members.

ICREPs does not in itself operate a registration system – it supports countries to develop their own systems based on the unique needs of that country.

All members of the Register, regardless of which pathway you register through, are required to hold a minimum of £5 million civil liability insurance. This may be purchased through REPs. For details of REPs Insurance please check details of our insurance policy here.
