  • Listing on website for “upcoming events”
  • Advertising in our News letter
  • Once your CPD course has been REPSSA endorsed there will be an annual renewal fee

How is it evaluated?

REPSSA administration staff collects the data. The data is then transcribed onto a confidential feedback form. All relevant documents are then sent to the REPSSA board members on a rotation schedule (Board members adhere to a Privacy Policy). The Board member then ensures all the relevant information is correct and assessed. Thereafter CPD points are allocated accordingly.

How are CPD points allocated?

CPD courses and points will be assessed to the following criteria:
  • The number of hours of the course
  • The number of actual contact time (time spent with a facilitator)
  • The assessments that are completed for the course
  • The facilitators knowledge and experience in the subject
  • If the facilitator is registered with a relevant Professional body
  • The outcomes and objectives of the course
  • The relevance of the material to the Fitness Professional
As a rough guideline (this is subject to change with reference to the above), points are awarded as follows:
  • 1 point for every contact hour if assessed
  • ½ point for every hour if no assessment over 1 day
  • Facilitator/s must be a subject matter expert

How long will the process take?

Once REPSSA has received all required documents and payment the application will be submitted to an independent party for assessment. The process can take up to 3 weeks.
