Q: Do I have to be an experienced healer to enrol?
A: No. Because all Animal Magic Training© courses are complete, professional training packages, they are suitable for both novice and experienced healers. You do not need any qualifications or experience of healing or working with animals before enrolling.
Q: Is there home study to complete after on-site training?
A: As well as the requirement to complete the quiz sections for the Learn @ Home parts of the course, there are 2 options of assessment for graduation certification.
Method One: Portfolio Assessment. This option requires hands-on practical case studies completed at home after the on-site training date, along with other written and photographic evidence. If you have successfully included all necessary criteria you will receive your practitioner certification within 21 days, by post.
Method Two: Practical Intensive Assessment (P.I.A). There are no case studies or portfolio to complete with this option. A P.I.A is a pre-arranged date whereby all assessment is done on-site in Norfolk over one day or afternoon. You are required to bring an animal with you. During the P.I.A session you will be assessed on specific criteria requirements. If there are areas which need improving, then you will have the opportunity to work through them during the session. You will receive your practitioner certification within 21 days, by post.
Q: How do I complete the Learn @ Home parts to my course?
A: All Learn @ Home full or part diploma courses are completed via our integrated LearnDash E-Learning platform which will be up and running by the summer of 2018. After purchasing your chosen course, you will complete your enrolment form then be given secure membership access to your course. Each module is completed in turn. At the end of each module there is a quiz to complete. The quiz forms our Applied Learning initiative which compounds and enhances your knowledge of the subject and forms part of the final course assessment before certification.
Q: How long will it take to complete a course?
A: This all depends on the amount of time you spend completing it. You have 30 months to complete each course from the purchase date.
Q: Are there specific annual marking dates?
A: Yes. Portfolio marking takes place every February / June / November. Your portfolio needs to reach us by the 15th of that month. Should you not be able to commit to these months then you may request a non-scheduled marking date (NSMD) which is arranged with Niki. 21 days notice is required to book an NSMD option and the fee is £59.88 paid by bank transfer only.
Q: Can I work professionally after training?
A: Yes! Because all Animal Magic© training courses are at the highest diploma grade, our courses are fully insurable, allowing you to practice professionally. Our courses are also recognised in over 22 different countries. Animal Magic Training© is the only provider to award graduates post-nominal letters for use after their name, giving kudos and instilling confidence in individuals and professionals who use your services. Post-Nominal letters can be used on all advertising and marketing materials and are an optional purchase. The purchase fee for post-nominal letters is £88. Should you require post-nominal letters with your certification, payment must be made at the time of portfolio submission or they will not be entered upon your certificate.
Q: How do I send my completed portfolio to you?
A: Via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Will I receive support during and after training?
A: Yes! Support is offered and available through our private Animal Magic Training© membership group. This group is invaluable to both students and graduates. There are video’s, audio’s, Q & A sessions, PDF files to download as well as support from other Animal Magic students & graduates. Group membership also awards you with your very own graduate practitioner entry on this website, enabling potential clients to contact you directly.
