The course is structured to allow for individual students to gain eligibility for entry to the magnet Therapy supplementary referral register with Shiatsu International.
Being eligible for this register will enable the practitioner to gain professional insurance (which is a prerequisite of the referral register) and join this register, for a fee which is currently £60 a year (insurance premiums vary with other therapies practiced and some may find that magnet therapy can be added at no additional cost).
In order to progress from successful completion of this correspondence course to eligibility for the SI supplementary referral register, it will be necessary to pass a test of competence (Shiatsu International has a duty of care to the public and the insurance underwriters, to ensure levels of competence in all those on their referral registers).
This test of competence will be by written replies to questions set with each section (4 in total) of the course. Each test paper will be examined, marked and responded to on an individual basis. Full details can be discussed and arranged on an individual basis. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
