CPD Courses - Points

For our one day massage courses, 10 - 15 CPD course points have been awarded by the beauty guild and CMA, 10 points by FHT and 5 by Embody - please check with whom you are registered with for their guidelines on how many points they award for one day courses as they all differ.

All our courses have been awarded CPD points (Continuing Professional Development), each individual professional body awards different points for our courses so we advise you check when registering your training with them.

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.

This makes our CPD courses available for the professional massage therapist or for a complete beginner. Each course page will state how many CPD points the Beauty Guild has awarded each course, please check with each individual professional body for their points for each course as they differ. Embody (CThA) have awarded our one day courses with 5 CPD credit points each.
