What qualifications will I gain?

Do I need to bring a model with me?

We believe it's imperitive you get to experience the treatments yourself, so throughout the course you will practice on fellow students, and be practiced on yourself!

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Everything you need on the course will be provided for you. It's a good idea to bring a pen and notebook, or iPad / laptop if you prefer to take notes electronically. Any equipment you will need after you have completed your course, will be explained to you on the day.

Are your courses Level 3?

Our courses are not Level 3 - for this you will need to gain a VTCT or ITEC qualification, which is much more expensive, and the courses are far longer.

What is the benefit of gaining a Level 3 qualification?

There are pros and cons for gaining a Level 3 qualification such as VTCT or ITEC. They are more expensive and time consuming, and are seen as a more academic entry into the industry.

However, they are not a legal requirement to practice massage therapy, and you can gain full insurance without a Level 3 qualification. However, you may not be able to gain a professinal membership without a Level 3 qualification - this is something which you might need to consider if your local council requires you to have one if working from home. You must check yourself, as each council differs.

However, with our qualifications you are able to gain insurance and start your own business right away - the beauty with our courses is they cover the business aspect which Level 3 courses do not.

How old do I need to be to attend a course?

For insurance purposes, you will need to be 18 to attend our courses.

What if an emergency comes up and I can't attend?

If an emergency arises on the day of your course or you are ill, we require you to contact the academy before your course starts at the earliest convenience. If there is a fair reason for non-attendance, we will endevour to put you on the next course.
