For our one day courses we only require a small deposit to book and the final payment is paid later helping you again to save and budget.

All our Courses have been Awarded CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Points

There are a certain amount of points required by the various bodies (IFPA, FHT etc) to ensure that members are up to date with various therapies. For example Aromatherapists are required every 3 years to keep their training in massage up to date and will look for CPD courses to be able to do this.

Our CPD courses are available for the professional massage therapist or for a the complete beginner. All professional bodies award one day courses various amounts of CPD points, on average FHT & Embody award 5 - 10 points and the beauty and holistic guild award approx 15 points. Please check with your association to confirm CPD points.
