This will enable students to use their IBT education to treat family members, friends and has enabled existing remedial therapists to add Bowen Technique to their current treatments.
This is also a viable option for Australian Therapists who hold a qualification and are seeking Continued Points of Education (CPE). The number of points received varies depending on the qualification you are registered with. As an example, Therapists registered with the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) can achieve 20 CPE points on completion of the Certificate course alone.
