A certificate in Anatomy, Physiology & Massage is preferred but not essential. The reflexology diploma course does not cover basic anatomy & physiology. If coming onto the course without a background in this you will be expected to cover it through home study. Study notes and homework can be provided by the school.
Continuous assessment by means of written homework, assignments and home practice. Home study and practice is done over a minimum period of three months and a maximum period of 1 year following the school attendance days. A final assessment date is arranged after the home study period. Please note that an additional fee of £140.00 is payable for the VTCT assessment and verification, this is to be paid in cash on the first day of the class.
VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology.
