In order to be eligible to be admitted to the CNHC Register, a complementary therapist must:

  • Have undertaken a programme of education and training which meets, as a minimum, the National Occupational Standards and the core curriculum for the complementary therapy/discipline concerned. Please note, courses delivered entirely by distance learning do not meet CNHC requirements.


  • Have achieved competency to the level of the National Occupational Standards for the complementary therapy/discipline concerned by means of relevant experience of at least three years and relevant training and been assessed as having met those standards.

We have a list of courses that meet the CNHC registration criteria for some of the professions we register click here for further information

Where we do not have a published list of courses please check with your training provider directly or contact one of the relevant CNHC Verifying Organisations
