EuropeActive Professional Standards Committee has set up a Technical Expert Group for the development of Strength and Conditioning Trainer Standards.
The EuropeActive Professional Standards Committee has started the process of developing educational Standards to cover the knowledge, skills and levels of responsibility required to deliver strength and conditioning training.
The first step in this process is the organisation of a Technical Expert Group (TEG) of international experts in the field of strength and conditioning. This group has now been identified and will be Chaired by Professor Ian Jeffreys. Ian is the Academic Director at Setanta College, is an Emeritus Professor of Strength and Conditioning at the University of South Wales and holds visiting professor positions at a number of Universities around the world. He is an internationally renowned coach, educator and author. An ex professional rugby player, where he played at the highest level for 15 years, he is regarded as a world authority in the development of speed and agility and, conditioning for team sports.
The group will meet shortly to begin the process of establishing the EuropeActive Standards. EREPS members should stay tuned for the latest updates on the implementation of these Standards in 2023.
