Online Training - How does it work ?

Why do I have to submit a case study or have a virtual assessment?

We require all students to complete a case study submission or virtual assessment to ensure that the treatment is being carried out safely and correctly. It allows you to ask the tutor questions and gain feedback, along with gaining confidence and reassurance. A case study or virtual assessment is usually required for insurance purposes too. 

Can I compete a case study on myself?

No, unfortunately a case study needs to be completed on a live model, as a client consultation and aftercare advice needs to be carried out.

Case Study & Virtual Assessment - What if I fail?

If you do not pass the virtual assessment the tutor will ask you to upload a case study submission to your student hub or rebook a virtual assessment. To rebook a virtual assessment will incur a small charge of £20.00 if required. 

What will I Achieve?

Upon Completion you will receive your Professional Certified Diploma. The Diploma will allow you to purchase Professional Indemnity Insurance if required
