Taking place at the Sport Wales National Centre yesterday (12th February), the REPs Welsh Convention was a great success, enjoyed by both REPs members and the wider exercise community.
REPs conventions, now running for a number of years, offer a unique opportunity for members to earn CPD points across a range of activities and workshops in what is a day-long event.
On this occasion, sponsored by Nordic Walking UK, Timely and LeisureForce, over 80 delegates enjoyed workshops from SkillsActive endorsed training providers including KBT Education and PTA Global.
John Byers, REPs representative for Wales, managed the event and was delighted with how the convention went.
“Yesterday was certainly one of our most successful conventions to date. We were fortunate to have some leading industry experts leading workshops which were of real value to delegates.
“Having so many professionals at the convention looking to learn, develop their skills and network with likeminded people is real mark of success for REPs, and we look forward to continuing these conventions for our members , and the fitness community, across the country in the future.”
REPs Compliance and Standards Manager, Rob Wilkie, who opened the event with a welcome speech, was equally thrilled with the day.
“Members looking to upskill and commit to CPD is always pleasing. To have over 80 exercise professionals with us in Wales for the event made it a real success, and on a personal level it was enjoyable to be able to meet and speak to so many members; being able to address and any concerns and share plans and thoughts for the future.”
The next REPs Convention will take place in the south-east this summer. Keep checking the REPs website for updates.
