Welcome to Accreditation

FHT's accreditation team is here to help guide and support new and existing course providers through their journey of becoming an FHT accredited course provider.

Accreditation ensures that course providers and prospective students recognise that qualifications and short courses have been independently and externally assessed, meeting the highest standards.

We offer accreditation nationally and internationally, which is an exciting opportunity to get your courses approved and recognised throughout the industry.

There are many benefits of becoming an FHT accredited course provider. Newly accredited course providers will receive:

  • A certificate of accreditation and a wall plaque to display in your premises.
  • A listing in our respected membership magazine, International Therapist, and on the website.
  • A logo for use on your course documents and website.

A new certificate will be sent annually to accredited course providers upon renewal.

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.
