Accreditation

 

  • Courses run by Holistic Zone have been approved, verified and accredited and are suitable to run as a viable professional training course as well as eligible for professional insurance.

  • Accreditation can change at any time. Holistic Zone will not be responsible for changes made.

 

Online / Distant Learning Course

 

  • At Holistic Zone, we recognise the convenience of online learning, and how this can improve on the students’ 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 gain 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 Zone.


NOTE: Whilst online 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 online / distance learning 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.
