Bowen Training Australia News
An update from BCNT: Certificate IV and Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy – Australia
Current course registration expires December 31, 2014
“The Nationally Recognised courses have been with us for many years now. First introduced in 2005 they have been through the reaccreditation process in 2009 and are due to go through reaccreditation again in 2014.
Many Bowtech students, graduates, instructors and practitioners agree that the government recognition has been beneficial in raising the level of acceptance and recognition of Bowen Therapy as a credible modality in the wider community and with other health professionals.
We are keen to maintain the Nationally Recognised training for Bowen Therapy and will therefore be undertaking the reaccreditation process again next year. As you know government requirements are increasing so if you are currently undertaking training in the Certificate IV or Diploma it would be advisable to try to complete before December 2014 as the new courses (if approved) will be in place in 2015, and you may be required to complete additional assessments to gain the qualification.
Everybody is busy so if you have been taking a longer time to complete your training is it time to make this a priority? There is a saying “You will never find time, if something is important you need to make time.” If you would like information on what you need to do to complete your course, please contact BCNT for your updated requirements. Visit us at www.bowen.bcnt.net.au (or use the search function on the BTA website here) to see the latest dates and venues for all modules.
Let’s all continue to work together to help keep Bowen Therapy strong, pure and recognised as a distinct modality.”
