Choosing your Reflexology Training
There are many different Reflexology courses advertised on the internet, and it definitely pays to do some research before choosing which one is right for you.
Professional Reflexology Association (PR) is the only organisation to Affiliate Schools, and these are chosen by the quality of their training only. They do not pay us to affiliate them. This way we can guarantee you totally impartial advice.
ALL our Affiliated Schools will give you high-quality training regardless of the qualification level at which they teach, with more than 100 face to face hours of personal tuition guaranteed. This is the minimum contact training needed to become a competent Reflexologist and PR is the only Association to insist on this minimum. PR does not accept members from qualifying from short, fast track or distance learning courses.
Choosing the Right Reflexology Training for You
Our Affiliated Schools offer three following levels of training:
The Professional Reflexology Practitioner Diploma
Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology
Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology.
Professional Reflexology Practitioner Diploma. (PRD)
Reflexology is a hands-on practical therapy. Therefore, you would expect your practical training to be of paramount importance. You may be surprised to know that no other UK qualification gives any guarantee as to the quality of your practical training.
With PRD, a minimum of 40% of face to face time with your tutor is required to be spent in developing your practical skills.
With 120 hours contact tuition, all necessary underpinning knowledge is included, relevant content, but without those academic elements better served by specialist CPD training. PRD has been developed by Reflexologists with 50 years experience in practice and training.
Agored Cymru L5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology stipulates a minimum of 160 hours of contact teaching and has a higher theoretical/academic content.
The good news is that Professional Reflexology Affiliated schools all teach a minimum of 100 hours face to face. Professional Reflexology will accept Level 3 Reflexologists for membership but only from a school which upholds these criteria. Affiliated Schools guarantee that you are trained properly.
