Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) builds on the fundamentals of a member’s existing REPS India accredited qualification which has enabled them to join the register.

Endorsed CPD by PD: Approval is a great way for health and fitness professionals to develop their career. All endorsed training has been robustly quality assured to ensure a great learner experience, that is safe and effective. By undertaking endorsed CPD, it also demonstrates to others that you are continuing to learn and develop throughout your career, keeping your skills and knowledge up to date and ensuring you are able to work safely and effectively.

CPD Requirement

As a REPS member, you must achieve 10 CPD points every year. If you achieve more than 10 CPD points in your membership year, the additional points will not be carried forward. In addition, CPD cannot be calculated retrospectively.

Acquiring new skills are essential and in some disciplines the complex practical skills you will learn require a full summative assessment at the end of your CPD course.

All assessed courses must be at least 8 hours in length to ensure that you receive a sufficient depth of training in the subject. You can search for assessed training in specific areas on the REPs India website and the PD:Portal, (ensure you select the REPS India membership organisation in the filter).

The following disciplines require you to take training that has a full summative assessment:

  • Group Indoor Cycling
  • Circuit Training
  • Olympic lifting
  • Kettlebells
  • Pole dancing (Vertical Pole)
  • HIIT/HIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
  • Pad work (Boxing)
  • Strapping Taping
  • Body Weight Suspension
  • Boot Camps
  • Circuit and Aqua programmes that contain any of the above

All CPD will have a prerequisite qualification requirement, based on the skills that you will be learning in the course, for instance if you wish to attend an endorsed dance-based course you would need to have the Certificate in Group Exercise, accredited by PD:Approval. All the endorsed training listed on REPs India website and the PD:Portal includes the qualification REPs members must have before undertaking the programme.

Certification and renewal

By choosing training that has been endorsed by PD:Approval you have the peace of mind that it has been independently checked to ensure it is fit for purpose, and will be provided with a certificate bearing the REPS India and PD:Approval logos. Also in the unlikely event that you are unhappy with the training you receive, PD:Approval will do their best to help you resolve any issues. When renewing you will be required to upload your certificates on the REPS India website for us to verify, however if you cannot show that you have achieved 10 points you will be unable to renew your membership.
