In Australia, there are no legal requirements for practicing as a naturopath as it is not a registered profession. In order to join an association and accept claims from private health funds, however, generally a four-year government recognised bachelor’s degree is now required.
In addition to completing this course, we recommend that you obtain both professional indemnity and malpractice insurance if you plan to treat patients. There are legal complications if you give incorrect advice to a patient and you are not covered by insurance.
This course is designed as an introduction to naturopathy and is suitable for those wishing to add to their natural health skillset. It is also a great way for already qualified naturopaths to gain an understanding of traditional healing knowledge from around the world.
