Complementary therapy courses and training schools

Complementary Therapy training courses and schools – what to look for

There are many different training options in the complementary therapy sector and it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Asking the following questions when researching training schools and courses can help:

  • What qualification will I come out with when I’ve completed the course?
  • Is this qualification enough to start practising my chosen therapy?
  • Is the qualification enough to progress in my desired field?
  • Is this qualification recognised in the country I intend to practice?
  • If I need further qualifications, does the school offer them or will I need to go elsewhere?
  • Can I get insurance with this qualification?
  • Is the school/course accredited by a professional body? (Therapy courses do not have to be accredited, but it can add credence to the qualification.  It also means that the course must abide by the Professional Bodies Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedure)
  • What is the teaching environment like? How much attention will I get as a student?
  • What approaches are taught in this school/course? Is it the approach I want to learn?
  • What qualifications/experience do the trainers have themselves?
  • Does the school offer ongoing support?
  • What do graduates of the course/school say about it?

Many training schools and organisations will have this information readily available on their website. If you cannot find this information or are unsure, do not hesitate to contact the school directly to ask for more information. Some Complementary Therapy training courses can be expensive, so you have every right to learn more before parting with your money.
