From 30 September 2011, the Level 3 exercise referral qualification will be a pre-requisite to gain entry onto the Register at Level 4.
The requirements for registration at Level 4 on REPs will be changing from 30 September 2011. From this date Instructors will not be able to register at Level 4 on REPs unless they hold a Level 3 exercise referral qualification. Other Level 3 qualifications (such as Personal Training or Advanced Instructor) will not be accepted by Level 4 training providers from this date; it is expected that candidates will possess a Level 3 exercise referral qualification prior to enrolling on a Level 4 course.
For further information about the pre-requisite requirements for registration at Level 4 please refer to the Steps to Level 4 guidance published on the REPs website at www.exerciseregister.org
