Assessment criteria

No prior knowledge of crystals is required and students are supported and assessed during their training. In order for students to receive the Foundation certificate they must attend all five classes, demonstrate their competence during practical sessions, and produce a portfolio containing the following: 

          • Completed question sheets covering the ACHO Foundation core curriculum
          • Copies of ten journal entries evidencing their work with crystals
          • Five case studies
          • Evidence of at least 35 hours Anatomy and Physiology * training

* Some students may have completed Anatomy and Physiology training previously and are asked to produce a copy of their certificate for their portfolio. For those who have not studied Anatomy and Physiology, a home study course is available for an additional £50.00. Details of other recommendations will be given out on the first day of the course. 


Certificate and Diploma Training

 Please note you do not have to attend the Foundation training before enrolling on a Certificate or Diploma course. However if you do complete the Foundation (Level 1) and you wish to further your training then you can attend a 5-day Upgrade course to bring you up to Certificate (Level 2). An additional 12 day course after that would enable you to achieve the Diploma (Level 3).
