AoR CPD Approval: Quality Assured
The AoR CPD Approval logo is widely regarded as the “Seal of Quality” in continuing education for qualified reflexologists.
All these training courses have been approved with the AoR. These courses are approved for CPD as we believe you will be well trained by these tutors in this area. However, to be able to include your training in the ‘experienced’ listing on the website it is required for insurance purposes to have assessed case studies completed as part of the course. Therefore not all approved courses are suitable for recognition the experienced area of the website. CPD or continuing professional development is not necessarily the same as completing training to gain additional skills. Please check directly with the course provider to establish if their event enables successful participants to be insured and also practice (this usually requires an assessment).
