Are you already qualified in healthcare and insured to practice?
Since our courses are designed as post graduate classes the majority of the students who attend the workshops are already qualified in another discipline and draw their core competence, ethics and registration from this primary discipline. Typically this would include osteopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy, dentistry, massage therapy, sports massage, rolfing, myofascial techniqes, reflexology, aromatherapy and a variety of other trainings.
Primarily, you need to have a nationally recognised qualification, of at least level 3, an anatomy and physiology qualification to the same level at least, be insured to practice and then able to add this work to your cover.
If that is the case then great! Go straight to the details of our Core Training.
After completing the third module, SER1, you also begin to be eligible for More Training courses from the broader curriculum.
No previous healthcare experience?
Perfect timing! If you want to become a practicing therapist but have no previous qualifications we can now offer you that training. The College of Body Science has developed a Foundation course, which you can pair with a slightly expanded route through our Core Curriculum classes and some extra support mechanisms alongside to get you to the point of becoming qualified – and a safe, confident and capable pair of hands!
Alternatively (as has been the case up until now) you can go and get a first training elsewhere. It needs to be a nationally recognised training to at least level 3 – for example a massage therapy or similar course, and you also need the anatomy, physiology and pathology qualification to that same level and to have built up some experience of working with people as a therapist.
I just want a few skills to help my family or friends…
Some people take the classes either for their own personal development or to use on family and friends in a non-clinical setting. If you are coming to the work without any other background and are not a practicing therapist we ask that you contact us first.
You may also be interested in attending an Introductory course first, either if you have no background or if you want to see if it is for you before you embark on a potentially longer training journey. These are run all round the country, by various of our experienced and qualified therapists. See what is involved in that on the Introductory Course page.
Help! None of the above scenarios relate to me…
