EHFA has developed a system of quality assurance that has been in use since 2007 and has successfully accredited over 30 training companies across Europe.
In response to the principles and aspirations established in the EU’s Copenhagen Declaration for third party (independent) verification of training providers, EHFA developed a system of quality assurance.
During the accreditation process, each submission was considered on its merits and the EHFA Accreditation Unit (EAU) evaluated content and ensured that the programmes are fit for purpose in producing candidates that can demonstrate the skills and competence required and as identified in the EHFA Standards.
The EHFA Standards have been agreed as the minimum requirements for an individual to be called an exercise professional and who are then able to apply for registration with the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) and the national registers working within its programme.
Following a full review of the earlier scheme, the EHFA Standards Council has now set a new policy for the institutions and companies interested in becoming formally EHFA Accredited Training Providers to the Health & Fitness Industry, based on a 2 year accreditation period. Accreditation means that the training organisation can successfully deliver the learning outcomes of the EHFA standards and that they have been independently verified and are entitled to use the EHFA Standards and EHFA Approved logos.
