ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology (Mandatory)
The Anatomy and Physiology award is the 'foundation' upon which all other Complementary, Beauty and Sports Therapy awards are based. It is comprised of several units encompassing all systems of the body.
It is essential for therapists to have a sound understanding of anatomy and physiology, as they will be working in direct contact with the body structures. It is also vital that they have a comprehensive knowledge of diseases and disorders of the human body so that they are aware of when and when not to treat a client, and only operate within certain parameters.
This certified course is run over a minimum of 50 hours and will result in an ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology (Unit 30 - 40). Minimum age for students is 18 (by examination date).
