About Recognition of Prior Learning

REPS India understands that there are numerous prospective members who have expertise and/or experience in the health and fitness sector but no recognised qualification to gain entry on to REPS India .

These may include individuals with:

  • International qualifications
  • Higher education degrees
  • Minimum one year of experience but no formal qualification

Because the training or experience that you have undergone is not recognised by REPS India we are unable to verify that you have met the relevant REPS India standards. However, we do have a route to ensure that you can meet the standards and attain a full, recognised qualification: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

RPL is a process that gives individuals with learning and experience in the health and fitness sector the opportunity to go straight to the final assessment without undertaking an entire qualification. This process is carried out by an accredited training provider which has been accredited by PD:Approval to deliver and assess qualifications.

In order for you to gain certification at the category you require e.g. Fitness Instructor, Group Exercise and Personal Trainer the REPS India recognised training provider must be satisfied that you have the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the criteria specified in the REPS India standards, which are needed to achieve a pass when you undertake the assessment.

Your chosen accredited training provider will measure your current skills and knowledge in health and fitness against the requirements of the full qualification, and then will support you to fill any gaps to ensure you have the best chance of successfully completing the assessment. Once you have passed the assessment the training provider will provide you with the official PD:Approval qualification certificate which can then be used to join REPS India along with your training provider certificate.
