National Occupational Standards (NOS)

The National Occupational Standards (NOS)* are statements which describe what an individual needs to be able to do, know and understand in order to be safe and competent to practise. Skills for Health, an independent agency, is responsible for establishing NOS across a wide range of health care disciplines, including many complementary therapies.

See Criteria for entry to the CNHC Register to view the NOS units which apply to all fifteen CNHC registered complementary therapies.
