To reflect working practices, many qualifications have now changed to include small sections on working with atypical clients. This enables instructors to adapt their mainstream classes for clients who may have additional requirements but who are still capable of attending a regular session. This could include older adults/children and vulnerable adults/pre and post natal clients/14-16 year olds/those with disabilities.
Taking these upskilling units is vital to ensure your qualifications are up-to-date.
The five specially written assessment units can be found in the members’ area of the REPs’ website – http://www.exerciseregister.org. Taking all the units also earns you 5 CPD points
By completing all five you will have met the agreed current National Occupational Standards required for the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) criteria (the new standard). These additional categories are now included in all REPs’ entry categories.
REPs urges all members to take these units, especially those who have taken the courses below.
It may be difficult to know which framework your qualification was part of and therefore all qualification codes affected are listed below (please check your certificate for the qualification code). If these qualification codes match yours, you will require the additional information and therefore you should complete these free assessments. If you are in any doubt we recommend that you do this training as it can also be a refresher and may be needed for insurance purposes if you should include members of these special populations in your sessions.
