Temporary halt on endorsing nutrition based CPD

sports-nutrition

There has been an increasing amount of material published relating to fitness and nutrition, which has led to an influx of CPD submission enquiries for Level 3 Personal Trainers which we have been unable to endorse.

In accordance with the REPs Occupational Descriptor, Level 3 Personal Trainers should not provide prescriptive nutritional advice or develop bespoke individualised nutrition plans for clients and so we have made a decision to look to other governing bodies to assist in the endorsement of these programmes.

For those providers who would like to have their nutritional training endorsed, watch this space for more news in early September.

For our Endorsed Providers who have a current nutrition based endorsement which comes up for renewal before the new system is in place, your renewal will be deferred until the new endorsement process is available.

For more information regarding the limitations around nutritional training for fitness professionals, visit the REPs website.
