Are you being trained by a fitness professional?
When training with Healthquarters you can rest assured the trainers have obtained Exercise Professional Registration with Fitness Australia and carry Professional Indemnity Insurance.
Fitness Australia is the national health and fitness industry association. Registration with Fitness Australia demonstrates a commitment to enhancing industry standards and building the professional capacity of our industry.
For an exercise professional to obtain registration, they must have completed a fitness qualification, certificate III or higher and must meet certain criteria every 2 years including;
- Current Senior First Aid and CPR certification
- Receive 20 CEC points from continuing education courses
No exercise professional can obtain professional indemnity insurance without fitness Australia registration.
So, before you sign up to any fitness class or personal training service, ensure that your trainer is registered with Fitness Australia and that they carry insurance for your safety. You can search all Fitness Australia registered exercise professionals by clicking here.
