Growing your business














In addition to the muscle testing training which will be fully provided by our Tutors you will also require an ITEC level 3 qualification in Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) and Nutrition. These course are provided by recommended external suppliers.

We do not include the A&P and nutrition training in the cost of the Diploma Course as some students might already have these qualifications. Your tutor will be able to provide you with all the details of this training.

All practitioners will also require a valid First Aid certificate


Our Diploma Course was fully reviewed and updated in 2020 and is based on a 270-page full colour book written by Terry Larder*
