VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology
If you are beginning a career in beauty, health, wellness, medi-spa, Laser, complementary healthcare or simply need an accredited qualification in this subject, then this is the course for you. This VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for Complementary Therapies will provide you with all the essential theoretical knowledge of the human body needed to perform Body and Beauty Therapy treatments safely and effectively.
Our course is a home study programme for 4 consecutive Friday’s, where you will be provided with a course pack detailing everything you need to learn with useful videos which will enable you to digest the information in bite-sized chunks. After digesting this information, you’ll be required to come into the school for the last 2 consecutive Friday’s of the course, where you’ll sit a mock exam, go through your pathology project, portfolio, final exam and portfolio submission. These days will be from 10am - 2pm. The dates below include both your home study days and your Friday's in school.
Upon the successful marking of your portfolio, you will be awarded with a VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for Complementary Therapies. You may also want to look at our individual Level 3 Models where this Anatomy & Physiology course is included as standard, meaning you will have two qualifications rather than just one.
