Aromatherapy Training

Our Aromatherapy training course is taught on-line in 3 modules which you complete at your own pace. It is accredited by the IFPA (The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists)The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists is one of the largest professional aromatherapy practitioner organisations in the world and is a strong, respected voice in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine and leads to a Level 4 professional qualification in Aromatherapy.

On-line learning allows you to learn when it is convenient for you as a student. A down-loadable manual is supplied with each module along with videos, pod-casts, on-line seminars (there is a requirement to complete a minimum of 40 hours), suggested reading lists, tutorials and relevant information to enrich your learning experience making it a truly interactive, enriching and life enhancing experience.

The Aromatherapy training course uses many of the new features that the internet provides to enhance the learning process, yet because you are led through all the processes in the same supportive way that the module runs, you do not have to be a technical wizard to use the course.
