Can I learn everything in one day for your one day diploma courses?
Many other companies offering similar courses but have much larger classes, therefore it has to be taught over a longer period of time. You may be asked to come back a second day to go over what you have learnt as the tutor does not have time to get around the class due to the large numbers.
Some other schools offer their courses over 2 days, sometimes it is a good way to get you to pay more?
They will often have much larger classes so they will have to spread their training over a longer period of time however we believe in small numbers so you receive one to one tuition.
What is included?
All practical tuition, training materials- towels, blankets, creams/oils. Massage tables/chairs are all provided on the day as well as a fully comprehensive manual. The booking fee (your deposit) is inclusive of VAT and there is no VAT to pay on the balance of the course fee.
There is a machine available to use on the day, however if you do want to order your own and bring that with you please feel free to discuss this at the time of booking your course.
The tutor will be happy to discuss products, prices and how much you can charge for the therapy on your training day. The tutor will also cover the insurance information for you too, we receive a discount with a large insurance company covering our training for those of you new to this field or wanting to change to a new and more affordable cover.
