Health Education England (HEE) produced a standard of treatments in January of 2016.
There were some surprises, but for the first time unregulated is becoming regulated. Finishing Touches feel that this is to the benefit of the industry as a whole and have united with a government accredited body and educator to bring you a course to ensure you reach the ‘qualification requirements’ to perform SPMU at the required Level 4. Although not currently enforced, a deadline of around the end of this year has been recently announced to adhere to the new standard of education and learning standards.
We have gained the knowledge and experience of an outside agency to bring us a level 4 qualification that will be in line with government guidelines.
The conversion is one day of lectures covering elements including anatomy and physiology, health and safety etc. You will be required to submit case studies and a short essay.
This is submitted to an independent assessor who will pass it onto a governing body to issue your certificate.
Is this compulsory?
Finishing Touches believe that this will enhance your skills already acquired through your training with us.
We would like to stress that this is currently optional. Although legislation is in the pipeline, it is not currently law. Therefore we are offering this option now for those who want to enhance their learning for the future before it becomes a necessity.
