Diplomas and certificates are awarded by accredited schools and colleges, to students who complete a course of study. These documents certify that the candidate has successfully completed the course, but they differ in a few aspects. Certificates are issued by a school after attending an accredited course. Diplomas provide more in-depth knowledge of the course you are studying and are of a longer duration than certificates. This normally entails completing case studies or reflective practice, attending an assessment etc. When it comes to course fee, usually diploma fees are a little higher than certificate fees. That is because the diploma course takes longer and contains more admin i.e. marking, than a certificate course. When it comes to employability, diplomas are more widely accepted than certificates. Sure, a certificate says you have some knowledge about a field, but diploma says you have an extensive knowledge about a field. Therefore, employers prefer diplomas to certificates. However, the situation becomes confusing when some schools name their certification programs as diplomas. When faced with such a situation, it is important to make sure that your professional body and insurance recognise the course.  Also, you can check for the duration, fees, and course work of the course to decide which path best suits you and your therapy portfolio.

Training manuals will be downloadable to each learner via their online learning portal. These manuals will be available to download for 60 days once your course has started. It will be the learner’s responsibility to download and save the training manuals within this time. Manuals can be read on all devices.  Certification for your course will be emailed to you once you have met the learning outcomes.

Brighton Holistics Online started teaching learners in 2006. We have become well known for our standard of education and training therapists to meet their full potential during this time. For us, a training school, we are incredibly passionate that every learner meets their full potential to become the best therapist they can be.

During this time have won awards for our education standards and the service we offer our learners. Our training team are handpicked because they have shown the qualities we believe make them good tutors. Each tutor must have a minimum of three years of experience in the modality they are teaching and must be a practising therapist. We maximise the learning time to make sure that you get as much practical time as possible during your time with us. We tend to cover theory in the morning and practical in the afternoon.

During your time with us, we make sure that all learning outcomes have been reached comfortably, ensuring that you have the confidence to deliver the modality you are studying. We are one of the very few training schools that issue diploma certification and not basic CPD or course attendance certification. With this in mind, learners must submit case studies before a diploma certification can be issued.

By completing case studies, demonstrates to the assessor that you have fully understood the treatment, and if the assessor picks up from the case studies that you haven’t fully understood the treatment, this can then be addressed by ongoing support. Quality of therapy is so important to us as it will be for you and your therapy business. Here at Brighton Holistics Online , we believe in not rushing your course. You will see some training providers offer a level 3 qualification 4 weeks. A full level 3 body massage / sports massage course has a learning time of 380 hours.

It is important that when you are studying that you are learning and understanding what you are doing and not just learning to pass an assessment.. if you continue to sports levels 4 and 5, it’s vital that you have mastered your sports massage level 3 before you undertake your level 4. How can you go to an advanced level when you haven’t mastered your basic level? It’s like when you learn to drive.

It’s not till you have passed your test and you start driving alone that’s when you learn to drive. We are also very often asked if we do fast track learning. Once you have completed your course, you will be able to become a CNHC and PSA regulated therapist, which means you are a health care worker.

Would you visit a doctor or nurse who had fast traced their training? I’m guessing not, so why should a therapist fact tract? We will support you and help you with your professional development. We have a full portfolio of courses to allow you to continue your training from the basic level to the advanced high levels. Support is given via telephone, zoom and face to face if needed.

It launched its Accredited Register programme under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, to accredited voluntary registers of professionals working in a variety of health and social care occupations that are not statutorily regulated, such as complementary therapy.

The FHT accepts practitioner level qualifications for therapy practice that meet the National Occupational Standards (NOS) and Core Curricula (CC) where available, or hold the relevant prerequisites. As part of your application, the FHT will need to see copies of your qualification certificates.

Please note, the FHT does not accept or insure online learning for hands-on therapies such as body massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. Blended learning that combines online and practical training with a tutor may be considered.
