Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

CPD at a glance – Full (Practising) Members of BAUK

(N.B. Associate members are non-practising Bowen practitioners; they are not listed on this website)

Due to Covid-19 BAUK are temporarily suspending the hands-on requirement for CPD until courses are able to resume.  You can still accrue CPD from online courses, webinars and books etc.

As a full member of the BAUK, the requirement is 16 hours CPD minimum per year. It is strongly recommended that the foundational work from the Practitioner level is revisited in some way at least every 3 years, through Module 8 or individual Modules 1-6, in the same way as we have to do for First Aid. Remember that you can do one day of a two-day course, if that is all you need for this year.

Please record the hours and summarised learning points in the CPD log below as evidence for your CPD requirement.

For a new BAUK member, who didnʼt train with a Bowtech trainer – they join as an Associate, (complete A&P if required) and complete a Module 8/Revision course to then become a Full Member with website listing.

APPROVED NON-BOWTECH CPD COURSE REGISTER

Our currently approved non-Bowtech courses are listed below in alphabetical order and are not in any order of preference. All have been individually evaluated, in person, by the Bowen Association UK, to ensure quality and relevance. Please note, that because we consistently monitor performance, courses may also be removed as well as added to the list, making it fluid and subject to change. It’s always worth members checking with the Bowen Association Office (office@bowen-technique.co.uk) to see what’s in and what’s out! And we always welcome feedback from attendees in order to assist our ongoing monitoring systems.
