We offer full training in Animal Physiotherapy with our Diploma. A series of online short courses and continuing professional development are coming soon. Keep an eye on our website or like us on facebook and follow us on twitter for a launch date.
Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy
The Diploma consists of a theory and practical element.
Students are required to complete and pass 4 units (10 modules) including a research project. This element will be assessed by end of unit assignments and a two hour theory exam at the end of the course. This element of the course is fully flexible. Course tutors are on hand for continual support and guidance.
The modules are designed to be flexible and can be studied at the students own pace. As a guide, to complete the course in one year, approximately 15 hours private study per week would be necessary plus 4 to 5 weeks practical training.
The Diploma in animal physiotherapy can be completed from anywhere in the world. In addition to our practical training venues in the UK we also have training bases in South Africa and New Zealand.
The practical training is not constructed in consecutive weeks. However, block training sessions can be arranged if necessary. Practical training will be given by The College of Animal Physiotherapy and other members of The International Association of Animal Therapists and will be delivered by a mixture of group practical training days and shadowing. This course is designed to be flexible so that students can continue with employment. However, days off work are usually necessary and students in full time employment should be prepared to use up annual leave.
