Basic First Aid for Therapists

While there is no legal requirement for complementary therapists to hold a first aid qualification, it is certainly considered to be best practice.

This class is not a guide to administering treatment to a patient, instead, what we’ve tried to do with this class is arm you with information about the most common conditions or situations you may come up against or be presented with as a holistic and complementary therapist. We recommend all therapists attending some form of professional first aid training - for your own peace of mind and to reassure your clients that you are professional and committed to your therapies.

If you enrol on one of our Practitioner Level classes, you will automatically be enrolled on our Basic First Aid for Therapists Class completely free!


Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certificate of Completion which is fully accredited with the IPHM. For more information on our Certified Courses and Insurance Scheme please click here.
