Letter of Portability

Letter of Portability

The International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals (ICREPs) is an international partnership between registration bodies around the world that register exercise professionals. Members of ICREPs operate independent, competency based registration systems for exercise professionals.  ICREPs registration systems operate in four continents, ten countries, and collectively register over 250,000 individual exercise professionals.

You can gain international recognition and direct transfer to work in the below listed countries through AUSactive's Exercise Professional Registration and ICREP's portability arrangement. 

ICREPs have produced a global matrix that maps each ICREPs member's registration levels against others, which provides a clear pathway for exercise professionals who are considering working overseas.

United States of America Registration system requires all individuals entering the US to sit for a competency-based exam unless certified by one of the certification bodies on USREPS for the intended exercise role. Any USREPS member can provide the competency based exam and it may be offered in your country of residence – Discounts are offered to individuals already registered internationally, contact AUSactive for more information.
