© The International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education
The International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education (IAHFE) is an international non-profit organisation and has been active in the field of sport education in Europe since 1999. Today, IAHFE works to create learning opportunities for individuals leading, developing, and supporting sport activities. IAHFE is highly engaged in pan-European projects, connects organisations working in the field of sport education, and is the voice of the sector on a European level.
International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education (IAHFE) is responsible for the management of certain parts of the sport programmes in the fields of education.
IAHFE represents the five leading associations of public health and is committed to assuring and improving the quality of educational activities throughout the European Region and the globe.
Accreditation is aimed at supporting the continued amelioration of education and training for public health workforces throughout the world by providing an international and transparent quality recognition. IAHFEE accreditation is available to any public health institution, programme or training course throughout the world.
Why IAHFE accreditation is important?
International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education (IAHFE) is concerned with setting, maintaining and enhancing the professional and ethical standards of its members who are actively involved in sport education and exercise science.
High standards are promoted in two particular ways:
Through the adoption of a strict .doc doument IAHFE Code of Conduct to which all members must adhere. Violation of this code of conduct can result in sanctions, including removal of accreditation. The code of conduct serves to ensure a minimum level of service to individuals or groups who make use of the range of services offered by sport education.
IAHFE accreditation is awarded to those practitioners who are deemed by the Association to have the minimum knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to be safe and fit to practice as a sport education.
Members may achieve accreditation as a result of work in applied sport/exercise science support, research or pedagogy. In all cases the process and the judgement of generic knowledge, skills and professional practice will apply although how these are expressed and the “client” group will differ.
Those accredited by IAHFE are entitled to use the term International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education (IAHFE)’ while they still fully meet all the relevant accreditation criteria.
Applicant Status indicates that an institution has achieved initial recognition and is progressing toward accreditation. Within ninety (90) days of receipt of application for accreditation, the International Assocation for Health and Fitness Education (IAHFE) will review applicant documentation for full accreditation. The granting or continuation of applicant status does not assure that accreditation will eventually be attained.
