RIPCECsblog

Since the launch of FITREC, we’ve shone a light on many questionable elements of our industry that we’ve all, at some point, taken for granted. Following recent questions on the topic of ongoing learning (specifically, FITREC’s move away from the points accumulation model) I thought it worth shining a light on the traditional CEC/PDP business models and why we feel its time has passed.

There was a time, before the internet…

Before the internet (inc. mobile phones, social media and websites), it was impossible to fact check the amount of information that we process so easily today. Continue reading

Nothing Raises Standards Like Accountability.

FITREC-Accountability (2)

FITREC registered professionals demonstrate an unrivalled commitment to transparency and accountability. Today, this leading commitment takes further step forward.

When registered with FITREC, professionals are given a publicly visible profile that displays all their learning and experience. It can also include references from industry peers, related achievements, videos, images and more. The result is a profile that provides the greatest possible insight into any industry professional.

To ensure maximum accountability, we’ve added a small but significant feature to all FITREC profiles.

All FITREC profiles now include a ‘Report This Profile’ link. This is a level of accountability NEVER before seen in our industry.

FITREC has made a fantastic impression on the Australia fitness industry in just a few short years. Unfortunately, our growth has outpaced many long established recruitment processes, leading to confusion in some instances.

While professionals have done a great job of updating employers in their area, we want things to be easier. So, we’ve written an open letter for all fitness employers to introduce FITREC, outline the benefits of FITREC registration as well as clarify the right of every industry professional to choose who they register with, or even if they register at all (naturally, we highly recommend it).

Please note, to ensure the accuracy of information surrounding the Fair Work Act and fitness registration, this letter was written with assistance from our legal team.  Continue reading
