If you don't want to be on the register, please consider the following:
By being on the register, you are demonstrating your professionalism and contributing to the integrity of the fitness industry. Employers, clients, and participants will be able to identify you on the register and confirm that you are certified and hold the additional training that you market yourself with. This is important for liability insurance and protection of fitness consumers.
By NOT being on the register, You won't be identifiable to your employer, clients, or participants, which may result in questions coming to you such as "I looked for you on repscanada.com and didn't find you there, why not?" This will inevitably bring up questions regarding your professionalism and commitment to the industry and your clients and participants. As well, many employers are increasingly required to show proof of certification for insurance purposes, should the need arise, such as in a case of client or participant injury.
We recognize that for some individuals who have not kept up their certifications, this may give them the nudge they need to bring things up to date, which is the point of the register. As an industry, we need to demonstrate our professionalism, and part of that professionalism is maintaining our credentials.
