Accredited Parallel Learning – Blog Post

Accredited Parallel Learning @ Brighton Holistics

APL, otherwise known as Accredited Parallel Learning, is extremely important if you are a therapist already and looking to continue with your learning in a different modality.

For example, if you are a qualified aromatherapist and wish to study reflexology, you can APL over certain modules, such as Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, Health and safety and business studies. This would mean you would not need to retake these modules. However, you would need to show certification to prove that these have been completed to the standard required. If they do not meet the required standard you would need to take the module again.

One thing to remember is that you can only APL for five years. Some training schools say ten and I have just heard of one allowing twenty-nine years. This is incorrect.

Although using APL is good sometimes, it is also good practice to re-visit Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, and this can always be completed via an online training course.   

Here is a full list of therapies which can be APL’d with the Brighton Holistics portfolio.
