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.
Upcoming ARCH CPD events
Intestinal Permeability Webinar - 16th** October 2018

** although the starting date for this series has passed, it is believed to be still possible to register and to view the first webinar, and online materials are available for 6 months.
"Intact gut functionality is critical to just about every condition you see, especially the chronic inflammatory diseases. To ensure you get reliable results we need to understand how the gut barrier actually works, how to accurately assess it and then when it’s not good, what to do to repair the dysfunctional barrier and/or absorptive function."

Identifying Flags in Complementary Health Care

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.
