The Professional Development Panel is a voluntary advisory body to the Professional Development team, with the remit to monitor the quality, systems and processes for training and training providers that have been given recognition by SkillsActive professional registers. The panel meets quarterly and recently recently discussed an enquiry from a learner regarding the pre-requisite required for kettlebells training – this particular learner had approached two training providers, one of whom required a pre-requisite qualification and one who didn’t, so which is right? Current rules for endorsement require that any endorsed kettlebells training must have a pre-requisite of either a L2 Gym or L2 Exercise to Music qualification and, after a review of the criteria, the panel confirmed that this is unchanged. REPs members undertaking kettlebells training will only be credited with CPD points if they have that pre-requisite in place.
