TORONTO, February 16, 2020 – Precision Nutrition, the world’s largest online nutrition and healthy lifestyle coaching and certification company announced today that their Level 1 (L1) Nutrition Certification, has earned approval from the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) and the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). Recognized as the number one recommended nutrition coaching certification by health, nutrition, and fitness professionals, the L1 Nutrition Certification is designed to provide a deep understanding of nutrition, the authority to coach it, and the ability to turn their knowledge into sustainable client results. As two of the leading organizations dedicated to advancing the standards applied to exercise professionals, training providers, and certification bodies in Europe and the United Kingdom, the approvals reinforce Precision Nutrition’s excellence in continuing education for nutrition science and behavior change in these key markets.
“Receiving approvals from EREPS and CIMSPA is a major milestone for Precision Nutrition’s growth in Europe and the U.K., and is further proof of the quality of education the L1 Nutrition Certification provides,” said Timothy Jones, CEO of Precision Nutrition. “Our team is committed to providing the highest-quality product and service to help set the industry standard for nutrition education in professional development around the world. We are proud that those efforts have earned the L1 Nutrition Certification recognition with these leading organizations.”
EREPS is a fully independent register of instructors, trainers, and teachers working in the European fitness sector, and is regulated by EuropeActive’s Professional Standards Committee. As an EREPS Lifelong Learning Provider (LLP), Precision Nutrition will support EREPS members in meeting their ongoing learning and professional career development needs. This also offers a reassurance to fitness professionals across Europe of the quality of their continuing education. Precision Nutrition’s Level 2 (L2) Master Certification—an exclusive year-long nutrition and lifestyle coaching masterclass—has also received the LLP distinction. Both the L1 and L2 Certification will earn the graduate 10 Lifelong Learning Hours, which contributes to the annual commitment recommended for completion by EREPS members.
Director of Professional Standards Committee, Julian Berriman commented: “We are delighted to welcome Precision Nutrition as a recognised provider of continued education under the EREPS Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). By providing access to high quality learning experiences the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) supports EREPS members wishing to progress and thrive within our sector. The addition of Precision Nutrition courses will make a valuable contribution to this on-going learning and development.”
