Additional information / Directions

The taught element of the Post Graduate ATACP Foundation Programme in Aquatic Physiotherapy course is aimed primarily but not exclusively at physiotherapists. A certificate of attendance is issued at the end of the course but only HCPC registered physiotherapists can continue on to the further assessment process and gain 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.


Although it is not mandatory for physiotherapists to undergo formal post graduate training in aquatic physiotherapy, the ATACP recommends completion of the taught element and successful completion of the accreditation process of the foundation programme as a robust route for developing capability and competency in aquatic physiotherapy practice, particularly given the lack of undergraduate training!
