(Align to Level 6)
As many Equine Therapists are aware, anyone can use the title Equine Physiotherapist, Veterinary Physiotherapist etc without restriction but we are cautious of using such titles as we do not want to give the impression that we have attended certain courses when we haven’t.
Here at EMA, we know we are better trained than many in animal therapy and along with the unrivalled continuing professional development (CPD) we offer, we don’t want to be compared with any others in the equine therapy industry.
We stand out in our own right for the quality of training our students receive and the outstanding service we offer as Therapists to horses.
This Master status is something you can aim for after you have qualified with us as a Therapist. But you don’t have to follow this pathway its purely optional – you can choose to only do a few CPD course with us to enhance your skills and knowledge and will still be a great Therapist. However, some strive to be a Master so we offer the route for them to accomplish this.
You need to complete either:
Advanced Practitioner in Equine Integrative Support Therapies
Practitioner in Equine Sports & Remedial Massage (with the top up of Module 2)
Racehorse Integrative Support Therapies
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
You need to gain 15 CPD credits from any of our equine on-line or attended CPD courses. Each course counts as 1 CPD credit. One exception is the K-Taping Part 1, 2, and 3 all parts make up one full certificate and count as 1 CPD credit not 3.
Both of our other professional equine career courses: Practitioner in Equine Botanical Choices (Zoopharmacognosy) and Equine Health & Nutrition Management also can count each as 1 CPD point.
On completion of the 15 CPD credits and some further case studies whereby you will utilise your CPD, you can gain the status of Master Therapist with the title such as:
“ Master Practitioner Equine Integrative Support Therapist”
