Qualifications 
Therapist Insurance have tried to compile an exhaustive list of qualifications that we accept. Sadly we have not succeeded. If it purely depended on the type of qualification you have as to whether we can insure you, it would be very simple. However, this is not the case. There are many things that need to be taken into account.
As a general rule, if your course has a large, practical, hands on, face to face element to it we will accept this. If your qualification is purely distance learning we may struggle to insure you.We will need to know what practical modules you have taken and how you were signed off and judged competent by your course provider.  We will also need information about your experience as well as details about other qualifications held before we can give you a decision.
If you are thinking about taking a distance learning course, ask the organisers beforehand who will insure you after you are qualified? Also note that some distance learning colleges are now offering practical modules as part of the course.  Remember, in today’s litigious world it is imperative you carry insurance.
Why do we make such a fuss about qualifications? This is because insurers are becoming more particular about the risks that they will take on. They want to know that the utmost care has been taken to ensure that Therapists not only have a sound theoretical knowledge base but also have a excellent grasp of the practical side of their therapy and are aware of the pitfalls and contraindications that may occur on a day to day basis.
If you decide to purchase your insurance through us, Therapist Insurance will require to see your certificates of qualification within 10 days of purchase. If in doubt you can send them to us prior to purchase so we can approve them and make your purchasing experience that much smoother.
Overseas qualifications, normally, do not present a problem. Therapist Insurance may require some supplementary information but as a general rule we can normally accept a large proportion of overseas qualifications.
We hope that this has helped to clarify things. But remember, if in doubt drop us an email at admin@therapistinsurance.co.uk
Please remember, we want to insure you! The easier you make it for us the quicker we will be able to cover you. The more information you can give us the better. If we ask questions please don’t be offended.
