The ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy is a blended study programme comprised of 3 elements, practical taught in-house through the block courses held in Nelson and theory and case study work done through correspondence and web based learning.

The aim of the IFPA accredited Diploma in Aromatherapy is to train candidates in professional Clinical Aromatherapy.  Learn how to provide Aromatic Medicine treatments including topical application methods of essential oils, hydrosols, carrier oils and learning Swedish massage techniques applying specially formulated blends for clients well being and improved health.  The course provides skills to encourage professional practice and confidence in setting up your own business.  Topics of organic chemistry, anatomy & physiology, pathology, aromatic formulations including internal use and various application methodology are taught.  The Principal shares a wealth of experience plus up-to-date international and national knowledge through her connections and research in order to keep up to date in the growing field of Complementary Medicine. This course is now fully recognized in Australia, with the Principal working alongside with providers to make sure the stair-casing between both countries matches and graduates are able to become members of the International Aromatherapy and Aromatic Medicine Association.

Students MUST attend 4 of the week block courses to complete the ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy Qualification.  There are two programme options to study in 2019, one in Term 1 and the other in Term 3. The programme can be completed in one or two years.  There are week block courses each term, and they run from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

It is preferable that students have completed an Introduction to Aromatherapy course prior to starting Aroma 1 course.  All class sizes are limited to 12 students.

This comprehensive learning program is one of the most sought after in the world, having both National and International accreditations to NZROHA, NZ, Australia and the UK (IFPA. & ITEC).  With over 29 years of knowledge and experience, Shelley Monrad still enjoys teaching her students real life practical application skills, so that they too can have a successful clinic and prosperous clientele base.  Shelley has also been involved in the standard setting of Aromatherapy qualifications for NZ including the Education advisor for The NZ Register of Professional Aromatherapists and on the Governance group for the Complementary Medicine TRoQ.
