Students work initially on each other then on models throughout the training, giving maximum diversity of ages and conditions to work on. Model sessions involve consultation, treatment, feedback & after care/home care advice.
Teaching sessions are usually either a full or half day in length at intervals of roughly once every two/three weeks, however this is only a guide and sessions can be tailored to suit student requirements. Courses can be run on weekdays or weekends. As most students are at work in the week, weekend training is the most popular.
Diploma awards require more than one course to be studied so students will often be attending two or three courses at the same time. Start & finish dates of courses running concurrently are staggered to allow for theory exams to be taken at different stages throughout the training, so making it easier to focus on one topic at a time & achieve the best possible marks with reduced stress at this time.
Tuition fees can be paid in instalments thereby avoiding the need to pay out a large lump sum in one go. ITEC examination fees are additional to the course fees and are payable towards the end of the course.
Courses can be started, and examinations taken, at different times throughout the year according to student demand and training time availability. Practical exams are generally held in November/December and June/July each year. Theory exams are done at any time as a course is completed.
