Course overview

This course provides an introduction to anatomy and physiology. There are sections on the skin, the skeletal system, the muscles, the circulatory system, the respiratory and olfactory systems, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the digestive system, the reproductive system, and the urinary system.  Your knowledge will be tested by a 140-question open-book quiz.

The course is aimed at therapists and others who do not require a certificate approved by one of the major therapy bodies, but who, because of their interest in health or their practice of a therapy that does not require study of anatomy and physiology, would like some proof that they have studied the subject. For example, people helping those with illnesses may be Reiki or healing practitioners, EFT or TFT practitioners, flower essence or Bach flower practitioners, dowsers, counsellors or hypnotherapists, and NLP practitioners – none of those disciplines requires any qualification in anatomy or physiology at all for practice, and many practitioners who never received an education in those areas now feel the need to fill that gap in their knowledge and demonstrate that they have done so with a certificate.

The course is also useful background for practitioners of massage, etc. in countries where a practice has been established but the practitioner did not need to have an anatomy/physiology qualification, and would now like one.

 
Entry criteria and suitability 

No particular qualifications are required for entry, but a strong interest in healing and/or complementary therapies is expected.

 

Qualification

Successful graduates will receive the Certificate in Anatomy and Physiology awarded by UK College of Holistic Training which is a private UK qualification. The college is accredited by the International Association for Distance Learning. Course graduates may use the postnominal designation Cert.Anat.Phys.

Please note that this is a theory course only and it does not lead to a qualification to practise any form of complementary medicine.

The course is accredited by The Institute for Meridian Psychotherapy (which is linked to UKCHT) for professional development purposes (see societies page for explanation).

This diploma is accepted by Calamus International University (a non-UK, private distance university with private accreditation) for credit towards a degree.

Although the unit uses a textbook designed for the VTCT examinations, this course is not approved by VTCT or by the author of the textbook.  (The VTCT is the Vocational Training Charitable Trust, a UK examining body.)  Passing this course will not give exemption from any VTCT exam and a pass in this course is not transferrable to any other school or college.  However it may help you to increase your confidence if you are thinking of attending a school offering classes for VTCT holistic therapy exams, because you will have some familiarity with the subject matter and the way it is presented.
