Collectively the NFLA certifies and registers over 10,000 exercise professionals across Canada.

 Canadian exercise professionals listed on ICREPs-endorsed NFLA registers have earned qualifications that meet provincial and national standards, are currently certified, registered and have current CPR and training in specific areas of fitness and exercise.  

The NFLA is recognized by the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals

ICREPs members operate in 4 continents, and collectively register over 150,000 individual exercise professionals. ICREPs has also produced a global matrix that maps each ICREPs member’s registration levels against the others, which provides a clear pathway for exercise professionals considering moving countries.

If you are moving to or from Canada and wish to have your qualifications recognized, you may apply for registration in ICREPs affiliated regions. These regions are growing in number, and presently include: United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, Poland, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada.
