natural health college online courses
Just wondering if anyone has done any training with this company & how you found getting insured once completed.
7yrs ago I did 3/4 of the itec reflexology diploma but had to quit through pregnancy problems. I'm now ready to train again but can't afford the £1500 the adult ed college want for the vtct course. So I'm considering this online course, as I'm already a bodyworker, as well as a nurse. I have 3 reflexologist friends who are happy to be my case studies so they can give me accurate feedback. I've still got all my itec notes too.
Any thoughts / advice gratefully received.
You should phone the CThA and ask their opinion. Years ago, this wouldn't have been acceptable by the original Guild of Complementary Pratctioners
Thanks Angela. I'd certainly not entertain the idea if I hadn't already had some formal training. The college say its recognised by inthcm or some such organization.
Holistic Insurance won't cover distance learning and I don't think CThA accept either. I think this company has arranged that students can get insurance through someone else though.
I think £1,500 is too expensive to train in reflexology. ITEC courses, such as the one at my college, go for about £500
You could consider all awarding bodies (VTCT, ITEC, City & Guilds) and perhaps check the ITEC website.
Some private tutors also offer flexible reflexology training. I guess it's a question of doing more research!
Well, I'm sure in 1997, I paid around £1000 for both Anat & Phys and Reflexology but inflation would have put at around that today
That's really expensive. The link I included in my previous poorest has a course way £545. Shop around!
Thank you for your replies.
When I did the ITEC course at night school it was £300 in 2005. Now they do vtct but want £1576.....I'm just so shocked at how much a government adult education college are charging! I will shop around a bit more, but is the general consensus not to do the online course?

It is ultimately your decision, but how about a compromise: doing the A&P bit online, and the actual reflexology practical course attending a college? It will be relatively easy to study theory at home in your own time, and get a book with test questions.
I can send you by email a really good documents with A&P exam type questions, lots of them, for free :)
There are three awarding bodies for reflexology: City & Guilds, VTCT, ITEC. Each of have different requirements. They are all at level 3 and you can get insured after completing any of them
I am currently doing some research to find a good course for me. I will take my time as want to save money and time!
You did not say where you are based, are you in London?
