Considering creating nutritional CPD? Read our guidelines to ensure adherence to the REPs Occupational Descriptor.
In line with the REPs Occupational Descriptor #4 that states that Level 3 Personal Trainers should not provide prescriptive nutritional advice or develop bespoke individualised nutrition plans for clients, SkillsActive does not endorse training that enables learners to
- Offer nutritional advice which is based on fads, trends or has celebrity endorsement.
- Offer nutritional advice which calls for the omission of food groups or encourages restricted eating patterns.
- Write specific, individualised nutrition programmes for their clients.
REPs has issued a statement guiding Personal Trainers in this area – visit the REPs website for more information.
