How will I learn?

Some of the foundation theory require pre-study at home before you come in to our training centre based in Billericay, Essex for tutorials, discussion and workshops. For the practical training, we will provide you with plenty treatment demonstration and hands-on practice under supervision.

We will keep our class size small so that our tutor can spend more time with each delegate for a more personalised guidance.

How will I be assessed?

The theory part of the course will be assessed on the basis of question papers. For practical part of the course, the observation of treatment on model patient in realist working environment is required.
