Become an FHT Accredited Course Provider

There are two types of accreditation available:

  • Accredited qualification; involving a review of the course documents, plus an inspection visit to observe course delivery and to review health and safety procedures at your venue.
  • Accredited short courses; involving a review of the course documents with no inspection visit, however, we do ask for photographic evidence of your venue to review health and safety procedures.

Please Note: Accreditation timescales are dependent on receipt of course documentation and availability of both parties for inspection.

We believe that our FHT Accredited Course Providers are our best advocates. Here are some of the testimonials that they've shared with us...

"Reiki Tradition selected the FHT to be our Accredited Course Provider because of the high standards, mark of quality assurance and code of conduct they expect from their members and training providers. Accreditation has proved highly successful for our students assisting them to work alongside orthodox medicine in hospitals, hospices, care & residential homes. Being able to offer accredited Reiki courses with standards and quality, is something we wanted at the core of our business. Since becoming an Accredited training provider Reiki Tradition has come to realise that many students are wanting the accreditation route & opting for the quality assurance that is gained from choosing us as their chosen training provider."
