Absent for over 10 years - can I restart my work as reflexologist?

Hello

Well it's been more than 10 years since I stopped working as a reflexologist and now I am looking to start up again.

Would anyone know whether I need to retrain? I have my A&P (ITEC) as well as ITEC for reflexology and aromatherapy.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you - it's good to be back here.

Regards

I'm not a reflexologist, nor specialise in the 'qualifications' side of things, but as with a lot of complementary therapies, it depends on how that particular field is regulated (or not as the case may be).

If the regulatory body for your field requires 'current' or 'refresher' qualifications (otherwise qualifications lapse after a time), then it may be a case you need to retrain.

A&P has probably changed a little since you did it, so it may be worth re doing the A&P course. I think it would be best if you contact ITEC and ask them if your qualifications still stand.

Certainly for your own peace of mind you may want to undertake a refresher.

Retrain - why? Definitely not, but refresher - I think in any way this can be good.
A&P in iTEC has “limited” time in case if you want to learn something new. Trainings provider may ask to bring ‘fresh’ a&p certificate.
About to start again - all depends on body and you need to ask them (and insurance company ) directly. But I have a feeling that this will not a problem.
