ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy

The main aim of the ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy is to enable Learners to gain the necessary practical and theoretical skills in order to provide Aromatherapy treatments to the general public and to gain employment in the Aromatherapy Industry.

Aromatherapy is the study of essential oil science and the practice of Swedish massage.  This IFPA Diploma in Aromatherapy will enable you to practice as a Professional Aromatherapist anywhere in the world.  Learn about Aromatic Medicine and how to administer essential oils safely, both topically and internally.  The programme provides skills to encourage professional practice and confidence in setting up your own business.  Topics of organic chemistry, anatomy & physiology, pathology, aromatic formulations are taught.  The Principal shares a wealth of experience plus up-to-date international and national knowledge through her connections and research in her 30 years of subject matter expertise of Aromatherapy and Aromatic Medicine.

The ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy is comprised of 4 mandatory units; Unit 382: Provide Aromatherapy for Complementary Therapies, Unit 383: Knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for Complementary Therapies, Unit 384: Principles and Practice of Complementary Therapies and Unit 385: Business Practice for Complementary Therapies.   Students must provide case study evidence of at least 100 hours.  Assessments are done by Assignments, Workbooks, practical examination and paper or online.  Once the above ITEC units have been completed, these can be cross-credited to other ITEC qualifications, i.e. ITEC Diploma in Reflexology.

To complete this Qualification in the ITEC Diploma of Aromatherapy, students must attend 4 of the week block courses.  These are done in stages.  Aromatherapy Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 and Stage 4.  They must be completed preferably in order, but in some instances can be changed, i.e. if you started another course somewhere else but did not finish, or you wanted to add onto your IFPA Qualification.

Accommodation is available for students whilst studying at the Aromatic Medicine Training Retreat at Wakapuaka Estate. Find out more about our accommodation and new teaching premises here.
