A new independent validating body for herbal medicine courses

2 Jun 2017

The European Herbal and Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA) is delighted to announce that it is working in partnership with the ABC Awards Quality Licence Scheme Plus+.

This will  ensure that all EHTPA accredited courses outside universities are independently validated by ABC Awards to Level 6 Equivalency, this being the Level required to apply for EHTPA Accreditation. The ABC Awards validation is entirely independent of the EHTPA; its QLS + Validation Process is conducted by qualified and competent educationalists. This arrangement secures the future development of high quality herbal training in the UK and is consistent with the standards that were agreed by the Department of Health Pittilo report in 2008 .

The following document, The Validation of Herbal Medicine Courses, explains the detail.
