ONLINE / DISTANT LEARNING COURSES
At Holistic Therapies Training, we recognise the convenience of home learning, and how this can improve on the student’s knowledge, treatment range and skills they can offer. We also recognise that practical experience is of utmost importance in order to give the best possible treatment, therefore, we do recommend that the students gains practical experience where possible, this may also be a requirement of their insurance company in order for them to insure the certificate. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they meet the requirements of their insurance company before enrolling on any course with Holistic Therapies Training, as refunds are not issued.
NOTE: Whilst home study / distant learning courses provide a great source of information and convenience to the learner, we believe that this cannot substitute practical ‘hands on’ experience. It is at the learner’s discretion to enrol on these courses, and to gain the correct knowledge and experience, as well as further training, where necessary (Some Insurers / Professional memberships may only provide insurance if practical experience has been gained in the subject.) Some of our home study courses, only provide the learner with an introduction to the subject, and we strongly advice they advance their learning with further courses and practical training where appropriate. It can take several years to become knowledgeable and experienced in some subjects.
You may be required to undertake practical training in addition to the home study to be covered, please check with your insurers/professional membership BEFORE enrolling.
I look at online learning as a way for people to increase their knowledge and skills and develop what they already have. This is an opportunity to build on your skills that you already have, and enhance them with further knowledge gained from the online courses. As we all know, it is a responsibility to ensure that treatments are given to the highest of standards, and this, sadly, cannot necessarily be undertaken by just doing an online course. It is the responsibility of you, the therapist, to ensure that you gain practical experience and ensure you are giving treatments to the safest and best way you possibly can. Many students will take our online courses, then go on to gain practical experience in addition to this.
ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY BEFORE ENROLLING ON ANY COURSE, NOT JUST ONLINE COURSES.
