Practical Course - Am I expected to know all the grips, referral pattens and cation points before attending the practical course? (1)

1. We don't expect practitioners to remember referral pattens off by heart. They are a reference so when you attend the practical course you have some idea of the patterns when needling particular muscles. We will go over all these again at the practical.

2. The most important thing to do after completing the online theory program is to concentrate on the Muscle Safety Grid, taking note of & remembering the Caution points, Needle directions & Grips for each muscle on that grid. We will go over & teach all these again at the practical.

3. We don't expect practitioners to know the grips, but you'll find it easier to remember them when we teach you these at the practical course if you have some idea of names before attending the practical. We will go over & teach all these at the practical.

4. It's a good idea to cross reference the Muscle Safety Grid information with the practical course handout notes which you should download, print and bring to the practical course.

Level 3 & 4 Sports Massage Therapists, Sports Therapist, Remedial Massage Therapist & Massage Therapists need to be qualified at their respective levels to enrol in the course.

Supplementary Course - Can I have a re-test on the same day? (1)

If I fail the practical test, is there chance to have re-test on the same day?

Yes. Practitioners who don't attain the safety standard required on the first practical test, are welcome to take a Supplementary Practical Course Test (SPCT) on the same day. 

Supplementary Practical Course Test (SPCT):

Our goal is to provide all students with the confidence to apply the safest Dry Needling techniques to help their patients. We support all students by providing them with practical training and theoretical knowledge, prior to and during the Practical course.

Our support assists all students in achieving their goal of delivering safe Dry Needling practice, gaining progressive confidence and achieving greater efficacy with experience.

Students who do not reach the required standard during the Practical Course Test will be offered a Supplementary Practical Course Test (SPCT) on the same day.

The format for the SPCT is similar to the Initial Practical Test but with two examiners and a model. Students are required to demonstrate safe needling practice of muscles included in the Muscle Safety Grid. The focus of the SPCT consists of surface anatomy, needling direction, caution points and the referral pattern for the relevant muscle. 

A video recording of the SPCT will be taken to provide feedback for students, ensure testing consistency and provide evidence in case of disputes.

We strongly recommend that all students review and familiarise themselves with the answers to the Sample Questions list. The list is available on the "My Courses" page and will help you prepare for the Practical Course Test.

What happens if I don't pass the Supplementary Practical Course Test (SPCT)?

If a practitioner does not reach the safety standard required to use Dry Needling Therapy after completing the Supplementary Practical Course Test (SPCT), they're welcome to join the Medical Acupuncture & Dry Needling Supplementary Course at a reduced price of £125.

This means enrolling & completing the Medical Acupuncture & Dry Needling online theory & practical course again.

You can enrol in the next available practical course if you wish. The online theory modules will need to be completed again (please see our Terms & Conditions).

Please add the following discount code when enrolling in the Supplementary course: UKSUPP. Please click HERE to Enrol.
