Before you begin your practical training there are some course prequisites.

Description of the training path from step 1 to completionFirstly if you have either held a recognized certificate in Anatomy and Physiology Academic NQF Level 4 or Level 5 (eg A Level or higher) or are, or have been, a Doctor, Nurse, Physiotherapist, Nutritionist, Naturopath etc. If you have completed a recognized certificate in Anatomy and Physiology Academic NQF Level 4 or 5, we will ask to see your evidence of this. If you don’t have this then you can undertake RICTAT’s course in Anatomy and Physiology.

Our course in Anatomy and Physiology is a self-study course consisting of 12 units. We recommend two text books to accompany the course which will give you a good understanding of the body's systems eg. Digestive, circulatory, etc. in preparation for your practical training at one of our recognized Schools.

Following the successful completion of the Anatomy and Physiology module you will be sent some extended questions to be completed and submitted to your tutor before your practical training commences. There will also be an informal interview with your Tutor for them to introduce themselves to you and to gain a little more insight as why you want to train as a Colon Hydrotherapist.

Your practical training will take place at one of our many Schools. There are two based in the UK, one in Portugal, one in South Africa, one in Dubai and one in Australia.

During your practical training you will undertake 100 hours of classroom tutoring, this will include:

There will be afinal exam lasting approximately 2 hours for students to demonstrate their knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology of the digestive structures and theory, in relation to the practical aspects of Colon Hydrotherapy. On completion of this module students will then present to their tutor 15 cases studies on treatments that they have undertaken (some of these will be undertaken during your practical training).
