I am delighted to introduce you to PD:Approval, the new organisation run by myself, Tom Bell, which now provides endorsement on behalf of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and the Sports Therapy Association (STA). The PD in PD:Approval stands for ‘professional development’ and this is at the heart of everything we do.
PD:Approval offers a fully independent quality assurance process from beginning to end. You will find lots of information on our website at www.pdapproval.com/reps and www.pdapproval.com/sta and can contact us through a variety of ways – call us on 0333 577 0908, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org , or use Tawk instant messenger via the website.
PD:Approval’s core role is to ensure quality assured training is available to members and is recognisable by employers through a quality kitemark. We will soon be providing new logos to all our REPs providers to show that their training is endorsed by PD:Approval, recognised by REPs.
The Quality Training Portal will continue to be available to promote endorsed training but work is underway to upgrade this value-added service to the much more dynamic PD:Portal.
We are very excited to be entering this new period, and look forward to working closely with all our endorsed training providers over the coming months to ensure that their endorsement continues smoothly and this transition period is concluded effectively and efficiently.
