The Leadership Institute hosted a workshop open to fitness training providers. Mr Pete Davies, Director of the Professional Standards Committee at EuropeActive explained how training providers can apply for accreditation of their programs once the Saudi REPS platform is launched.
As part of the regulations surrounding the fitness sector, Leadership Institute will establish a register to accredit training providers and individual fitness professionals aiming to work in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Following international best practices in Vocational Training quality assurance processes, Mr Davies explained how training providers can submit evidence of their training materials (manuals, teaching guides, and others) in order to ensure graduates of their programs meet the learning outcomes and competencies specific to the standard for each professional level.
Participants were satisfied with the launch of the fitness sector professional regulation as it will promote quality of education and improved service for clients of fitness centers.
