The taught element of the Post Graduate ATACP Accredited Foundation Programme in Aquatic Therapy course is aimed primarily (but not exclusively) at physiotherapists -Having studied at the 2 day taught element of the ATACP Accredited Foundation Programme in Aquatic Therapy students would receive a certificate of attendance but not a qualification as such - there are further practical and exam parts only open to HCPC registered physiotherapists which need to be successfully completed in order to achieve accreditation.
The taught element of the course has been attended by many people working in aquatic therapy but not qualified as physiotherapists who have found it very useful. Potential non-physiotherapist candidates should take note that this course builds on 3 years of university level study needed to qualify as a physiotherapist and is conducted using phrases and terminology familiar to physiotherapists.
"The ATACP recommends the ATACP Accredited Foundation Programme in Aquatic Physiotherapy as an opportunity to gain robust competency in aquatic physiotherapy in a simple straight forward way."
