State and Territory Governments recognise FITREC registration

State and Territory Governments recognise FITREC registration
May 28, 2018

Australia’s changing fitness registration landscape has seen a significant recent development with both the NSW and the Australian Capital Territory Governments acknowledging FITREC as a fitness registration provider.

The move is wide-reaching as ACT is currently the only State/Territory in Australia that specifies fitness registration as a requirement to be considered ‘qualified’ as a peronsal trainer.

FITREC Managing Director, Dennis Hosking advised that “on Wednesday 24th May we received confirmation that the ACT Commissioner for Fair Trading had signed off on FITREC as being an Approved Registration Body under the ACT’s Fair Trading (Fitness Industry) Code of Practice 2009. “This gives fitness professionals and employers in the ACT unprecedented flexibility, autonomy and choice with regards to fitness registration.”

While fitness registration is not compulsory in NSW, it is one of the only states that mentions Fitness Australia by name as a registration service.

Following notice earlier this month to the NSW Minister for Finance Services and Innovation that there are multiple fitness registration services, the NSW Government have now confirmed that they are amending relevant pages where reference is made to Fitness Australia to note that there are a number of industry bodies that represent the health and fitness industry in NSW.

Welcoming this recognition, Hosking added “I am absolutely thrilled to see FITREC recognised at a government level as this removes any concern industry people might have as to FITREC’s status as a registration provider.”
