1. BENCHMARKING / COMPARISON
Every FITREC profile has a FITREC Rating for easy benchmarking. This rating uses a score out of 100 each for education, experience and references. The maximum possible rating is 300. A score of 300 is rare and to be respected. Low scores are typical of new professionals.
On every profile, you can see what a professional has scored in each of the three key areas, allowing more accurate benchmarking between professionals.
Compare any professional against the average across all FITREC professionals, - This average can be found on the FITREC Home Page.
Note, scores for education and references depreciate over time.
2. SPECIALISATION & INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
At the top of every profile, professionals can indicate the focus of their fitness career. This provides a broad view of their interest that can then be verified by the detail contained within their profile.
Next to SPECIALISATION is INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE. This gives you an 'at a glance' summary of information provided in a professional's work history.
3. CONFIRM CERTIFICATES
All primary qualifications are included on FITREC profiles as an attachment (look for the blue paperclip).
Similarly, professionals can include all other related certificates and documents, making things easy to confirm as required. This can include First Aid, CPR, Certificate of Currency (insurance), Police Check or WWCC.
4. CHECK REFERENCES
FITREC references place a higher value on peer reviews, rather than client reviews.
Aside from the generally accepted value of peer review, for anyone close to the industry, such as employers, there is a greater chance they might know the person providing the peer review, adding legitimacy to the comment.
5. THE VALUE OF ACHIEVEMENTS
'Fitness' is a way of life, and many professionals have achieved great things outside of the work environment. Be sure to check for the inclusion of any achievements that might add further weight to a professional's capacity in their chosen field.
