Who are REPS New Zealand

REPS is the registration body for the New Zealand exercise industry, with the majority of exercise facilities in New Zealand only using the services of REPS Registered Exercise Professionals. Registration is the expected standard and the right thing to do with more than 3000 exercise professionals registered in New Zealand, and over 200,000 registered worldwide.

REPS is not for profit and has a key objective of making sure that New Zealanders receive world class safe and effective exercise advice.

The REPS standards are set by the industry through consultation processes. REPS is supported and recognised by Exercise New Zealand, Skills Active Aotearoa, and is in regular communication with key government agencies including the Ministry of Health, ACC, and the Ministry of Sport and Recreation.

Personal Trainer Registration

Exercise professionals that wish to register with REPS for the first time may do so by registration on the REPS website. You will need a copy of your qualification or overseas registration and a copy of a relevant current First aid.

If you are looking to re-register with REPS you can also do this via the website. You will need
details of your ongoing education (CPD points) and first aid information.

How Many CPD Points Do I Need to Re-Register with REPS

REPS registered Exercise Professionals are expected to accrue 10CPDs each year.

A full day CPD workshop with an assessment is equivalent to 10CPDs.
A full day CPD workshop without an assessment is equivalent to 5CPDs.
An full day online CPD fitness course is equivalent to 5CPDs.

Please note: First aid courses don’t earn CPD points.

CPD Deficit

An exercise professional can carry forward a shortfall of up to 10 CPD points in any one registration year. The deficit must be cleared in addition to the current points required in the following registration year.

CPD Credit

CPD point credits are valid for up to two re-registration years . An exercise professional who has earned 20 CPD points during their current registration year (and didn’t have any shortfall in the prior registration year), will have CPD Points (10 points) carried forward to the next years re-registration.
