Can I train online? *

Therapeutic training involves learning interpersonal skills. For this reason we require that at least 80% of training on courses is face to face and interactive.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, for now, we are accepting face to face training which is online provided that -

  • it is live – not recorded
  • it offers you the opportunity to take part in discussion and ask questions
  • it includes small group work
  • it incorporates skills development like demonstrations and role play
  • it has a 50:50 ratio of theoretical to skills teaching


Once the pandemic is over, we will review our requirements on how much training needs to be in person. We give plenty of notice if we intend to change our requirements on this. This means you will have time to apply for accreditation using the current guidance before any changes are brought in.
