At ARCH, we believe that our therapists should continually improve their knowledge and understanding of the industry, and keep abreast of the latest developments in techniques and technology. That’s why we insist on 30 hours of Continued Professional Development every year as part of our membership criteria.
To help our members achieve this, we host a range of CPD events, including our annual conference. We are also pleased to pass on details of other CPD events that we think may be relevant and interesting to our members.

My ARCH – Linda Ternent
My most memorable experience was attending the Kneipp School in Germany. We had so much fun learning constitutional hydrotherapy at a wonderful CPD event.
