What Does Laser Learning Accreditation Mean?
Laser accreditation requires adherence to a strict code of teaching and support as well as upholding and complying with the policies of quality for training and equal opportunities required by the laser.
To have external accreditation by the Laser means that the student knows the course is being regulated by a completely independent party, ensuring the standards of teaching and required levels of learning are being upheld on an ongoing basis, and, as with all good organisations and professional bodies there is an independent complaints procedure in place.
All courses are externally moderated to ensure consistency and quality of training.
Both the Myotherapy and the Exercise Physiology course have now also gained accreditation with the BVNA. (British Veterinary Nursing Association)
The Galen Canine Myotherapy (Massage) Diploma Course is accredited by Laser Learning and the BVNA and has a 49 credit level 3 course. Students typically take 18 months to complete around 500 hours of study.
