EDUCATION

Do you have what it takes to become an ICAHT Certified Hijama Practitioner?

Are you someone who is fascinated with the human body, hold a strong passion and interest in natural health and love to help and care for other people?

 

Do you want to take control of your own health through an in-depth understanding of how the body works and in turn allow that knowledge to help empower you to make a positive change to the people in your community?

 

Are you frustrated with your current working arrangements in which there is no real job satisfaction or career progression and find that your work environment is not contributing to your personal and spiritual growth?

 

If the answer to all of these questions is a yes, then a new career as a hijama practitioner may be the key to helping you gain freedom and flexibility in your work, while providing you the motivation and job satisfaction to be able to love what you do everyday.

 

With the growing popularity of complementary medicine and a general dissatisfaction of conventional drug based medical care, there is not a better time to consider getting involved in the field of Hijama or cupping therapy. With high performance athletes and pop stars leading trends that encourage the use of the practice, more and more people are seeking this form of care then ever before.

 

The team of doctors and practitioners who teach at our institute have the capacity to help you become competent and safe, not just in the practice of hijama but also in the management of people’s health conditions by teaching you all there is to know about how the human body functions and how to influence it out of disease states and into natural healthy and optimised functionality.

 

Regardless of your current level of knowledge and understanding, here at ICAHT, we are able to help you transition into a proficient and confident hijama and cupping practitioner. Whether you are a health professional looking to add new skills to your portfolio of practices or a single mum who wants to re-enter the world of education and learning, our leading teaching program is flexibly designed to suit your lifestyle needs.

Course Design

Our ICAHT Diploma involves a blended learning format allowing our students the flexibility to study in their own time without compromising on the quality and level of education we were providing.  All of our original live classroom lectures have been video-recorded so that the theoretical study elements of the course can be studied via distance learning in the comfort of our students own homes and around their own timeframes to suit their circumstances.

Stage 1 and 2 of the ICAHT diploma are online study modules. The content is delivered primarily through our engaging video lectures which come with supplementary printable handouts and are accessed via our online teaching portal. There is online interaction via our commenting feature as well as direct access to instructors via email, WhatsApp and telephone conversations to mitigate the lack of face to face interaction. 

There are multiple choice questions after each lecture to provide the students feedback on how much they have grasped and there are also end of stage exams that allow us to gage the student's level of understanding before progressing to the following stages.

Only once the student has satisfied the requirements of stages 1 & 2 are they considered suitable to enter stage 3 to partake in their clinical internship. The internship requires physical attendance and many students both national and international benefit from this experience a great deal.

 

For international students we are able to condense all the practical attendance requirements up into a 2 week window making it much easier to complete than our previous set up. What students take away from this aspect of the course is extremely valuable as it provides exposure to a wide range of cases and practical experience (seeing up to 40 patients a day in our teaching clinic) that helps build the confidence and abilities that make our practitioners the best at what they do. It is this differentiation that ensures success in clinical practice as your abilities will play a big part in ensuring your success.

Frequently asked questions

Who Can Enrol On This Course?


This course is open to all backgrounds and abilities. As long as you are committed to study we welcome you on the course. We do not have entry requirements, as long as you are able to study the content provided and pass your assessments we are happy for you to join us. The study goes from the very basics up to complex levels of study. Although a background in health sciences is advantageous the course provides you all that you need to know. If you are completely new to the subjects it may take you a little more time to study than others.




How Long is the Full Course?


The ICAHT Certification Program is based on a flexible learning schedule which means you decide how long you wish to take to study the material. There are over 100 hrs of lectures so there is plenty to study but the pace that you study at is up to you. Some students take up to 2 years to study others have complete in less than 6 months. It really depends on your level of commitment, your current level of education and your personal circumstance. If you are studying at an academic level for the first time you may not just be learning the subjects we teach but may also be "learning how to learn" in your own way at the same time. Something that academics and weathered students will be familiar with. You may also need to look up terminology and background subjects if you are new to studying the clinical sciences which you may also want to factor in. As a guide though if you wish to use our recommended time time line which is spending approximately 5 hrs per week studying: Stage 1 takes approx. 3 months Stage 2 takes approx. 6 months Stage 3 takes approx. 6 months But again this is all subject you your own circumstance, commitment and motivation levels.
