The qualification was graded by Ofqual as a Level 3 diploma- the duration of the qualification is a 2 year, part-time study, however, there is an extension policy if a learner requires.

The Trust Technique works with all animals. We have created 2 categories based on the learners animal experience. The domestic animal is those that are living in a home, for example, dogs cats rabbits etc.. Large animals include horses, farm animals and captive animals.

For assessment purposes, working with dogs for domestic and horses for large animals. Mainly because they can be worked with on leads and halters, demonstrating this gives us the confidence that the Practitioner will be able to work with animals that do not need the lead or halter.

We do require that all learners have experience with each category that they will be working with. Horse experience for large animals and dog experience with domestic.

There are 2 ways that you can add the extra category to your qualification.

1 After completing one category we will be happy to extend your time to complete the second category (if you have the correct experience) After completion then we can qualify you for both categories. There is a £500 fee for the second category

2 Qualify for one category and then re-enter the content to complete the second category. This means that you have already been qualified for one and then you re-enter the qualification to complete the second category. This method means that you will be registering a second time and this requires a second application fee and course fee. This option would be for someone who may not have had the necessary experience for the second category when they first applied. Yet since that time now have the experience necessary for the second category. This will require a full re-registration including the fee plus the full course.

There are:

6x small A4 essays to complete

5 x books on our required reading list. These are books chosen that support the Trust Technique methodology and bring extra insights to the learner experience

1x 20 min video presentation describing the Trust Technique

6 x sessions for 4 animals in each category. If completing both categories then this is 48 sessions 24 with dogs and 24 with horses. These are Gaining your own experience and are sessions with other peoples animals (not teaching the owner)

10 x consultations for each category. If completing both categories then this would be 20 sessions 10 with dogs and 10 with horses. At this point, learners are working with both the human and the animal. We require the best sessions to be videoed and submitted to us as the final assessment.

Learners will need to video their consultations with the client and their animal. The camera will need to be able to record for over 1.5 hours, have good visual and audio.

We recommend Go Pro sessions and a chest strap, this allows the learner to wear the camera so that we can see the session from the learner’s view.

Having a good quality camera can really enhance your practice as you will also be able to take videos of those gentle touching moments and can be used for promotion of your practice.

Yes, assessments do need to be in English. If the learner is in a country that does not speak English, please find clients that can converse in English. Otherwise, the videos will need to be subtitled which would be a lengthy process for the learner. We are very excited about having bilingual learners as the opportunity for them is huge! It may be harder for assessments but after qualification, it means that the Trust Technique can be delivered to a larger audience.

Yes, we are looking at the next level of qualification is one of a coach. This will be exploring the rehabilitation of both animals and people, combined healing. There is a great need for this level of healing worldwide. We will be looking at qualified practitioners who are ready and willing to take the Trust technique to this next level.

This level 3 diploma is regulated by Ofqual, which is one of the leading qualification authorities in the UK. The UK has a well-deserved reputation worldwide for providing high quality and well-respected higher education. The growth of the internet has enabled UK institutions to make information on their courses available to a global audience. This growth and the need for more flexible provision, opening higher education up to a wider group of people means that many universities and colleges now offer their degrees through distance learning.

We have our own block scheme for any learners that are within Europe. We also have the membership for international insurance.

Yes we do and this option will be sent to you after this registration.
