Introduction

Introduction

This course is designed to be delivered in two inter-related half days for each topic but of course due to their proximity there are regular referenced relationships. Our goal is to give you the confidence to speak professionally about these areas and build the skills to work with clinical professionals for the best interests and safety of the client or class member. We will cover the structure and function of the Sacroiliac and Hip joints and their muscular anatomy together with common problems associated to these areas.

Final Assessment: A written assessment is required covering evidence of knowledge and application of knowledge obtained on the training day. This is typically submitted after attendance of the training course.

Foundation Diploma: Some centres have a delivery format that has less Face to Face time due to local considerations.  When this occurs, the extra hours can be accrued through attendance of additional educational events in the subsequent months and years to qualify for the other levels of Diplomas.  Typically, a Foundation Diploma has less observed practice time and fewer tutor led group classes but educational content is not excluded.
