The aim of the Diploma in Integrated Reflexology is to enable Learners to gain the necessary practical & theoretical skills to gain employment in the Reflexology Industry.
The Diploma in Integrated Reflexology is both RNZ and ITEC approved, so you will come out with two qualifications, one in-house, recognised in RNZ and the ITEC (which is externally assessed) and is comprised of 4 mandatory units; Unit iUCT32 - Provide reflexology for complementary therapies, Unit iUCT38 - Knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology for complementary therapies, Unit iUCT21- Principles and practice of complementary therapies and Unit iUCT34 - Business practice for complementary therapies.
Students must provide case study and treatment evidence of at least 150 hours.
Assessments are done by Assignments, Workbooks, practical examinations and paper examinations.
Once the above ITEC units have been completed, these can be cross-credited to other ITEC qualifications, i.e. Aromatherapy.
To complete this Qualification (both the in-house AMI Diploma in Integrated Reflexology and The ITEC Diploma in Reflexology); students must attend at least 1 of the 3 week block courses that are held in Nelson, NZ. Those 2 weeks the student cannot attend class in person, would require to attend in class via Zoom and be present via that way. In between structured class hours, students need to complete other assessment work, as described in the enrolment brochure and handbook.
Courses still go ahead, even if a part of NZ is in lockdown. As in 2021, we conducted both in person and Zoom attendance.
Week 1: 4th April to 8th April 2022
Week 2: 27th June to 1st July 2022
Week 3: 19th September to 23rd September 2022
Note: Students are given an accommodation guide on where to stay in Nelson, based on other students feedback and experience.
