Continuous Professional Development

We take the continued professional development of our all registered practitioners very seriously. Any CPD course accepted by The Bowen Association UK as part of the annual CPD requirement is rigorously assessed for suitability. These controls are in place to reassure the public and practitioner alike, that the training our members receive is Bowen relevant, and the best possible. Our stringent quality control is one reason our practitioner listings are regarded so highly.

BOWEN ASSOCIATION UK

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

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.

NOTE: In order to meet in-year CPD requirements any member booked on a Bowtech course which subsequently gets cancelled can substitute a BAUK approved non-Bowtech course, irrespective of length of membership, if there are no other appropriate Bowtech courses shortly available in a sensibly accessible location.

For a new BAUK member, who didn't 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.

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.
