A certain number of hours of
clinical assessment will be required by each therapist.
These hours will be incorporated in the delivery of taught classes
but for Distance Learning courses the method of assessment in the
clinical situation will be offered to accommodate the principles
of distance learning.
Therapists will be encouraged to attend teaching and assessment
centres. The benefits of meeting with other therapists and sharing
information are well worth considering.
For those, too distant from centres or who are unable to travel,
a method of video assessment will be developed.
of continued study:
All therapists will need to demonstrate proof of continuing development
A certain number of credit study hours per annum will be determined
and methods for enabling participation. Please contact me for
Normally this is carried out by attendance at lectures, for which
credit hours are granted.
This will be suitable for those who are able to travel to lecture
centres and for whom the lecture will be worth attending.
The Register of Nutritional Therapists however recognises that
geographically distant therapists may find it difficult to travel
and we are preparing to accept the concept of electronic attendance.
The RNT will endeavour to have suitable lectures placed on a web
site. Questions about the lecture will be asked and attending therapists
will be able to send their answers in via email or some other mechanism.
On satisfactory completion of answers, credit hours can be awarded.
The point about proof of continued development is that therapists
can demonstrate that they are progressing with the times and keeping
themselves updated, which provides a better service to the public.
Keeping the licence current:
Proof of attained credit hours will almost certainly be a condition
of keeping a practitioner's licence current.
