REGISTRATION WITH CEPNZ

Clinical Exercise Physiologists are allied health professionals specialising in the prescription of therapeutic exercise, based on a physiological assessment, for the management of a wide range of diseases and disorders.

CEPs are highly educated, clinically experienced individuals who work in collaboration with other health professionals overseeing a patient's healthcare. Importantly, those registered with CEPNZ are assessed to have met the Standards expected of Practicing Clinical Exercise Physiologists. These principles were discussed with industry and academic representatives and published in 2015.

Clinical exercise physiologists registered with CEPNZ are encouraged to register with the Clinical Physiologist Registration Board (CPRB). The CPRB is the registration board set up for clinical physiologists in New Zealand, including exercise, cardiac, sleep, respiratory, and neurophysiologists. Currently registration with the CPRB is voluntary; however, only those on the CPRB Register can be awarded an Annual Practicing Certificate. The registration process is set up to meet the standards and requirements of the Health Practitioner Competence Assurance Act (2003).
