KNOS stands for Kinesiology National Occupational Standards. These are to ensure that all kinesiologists are qualified to a high standard.


Those who belong to a professional body such as the Kinesiology Federation (KF) or the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) have proven they meet these standards.

In order to meet the standards a kinesiologist will have undertaken a Foundation Training, Practitioners Course, Interpersonal Skills, Practice Management, Human Anatomy and Physiology and Nutrition Studies. These are all part of the KNOS.  

The KNOS are standards set by Skills for Health and are known as CH-K1 and CH-K2.
