Courses and Training

The IFA provide a range of clinical aromatherapy courses leading to internationally recognised qualifications. Our courses are pitched between a level 2 to 5, and cater for those who have no previous experience to experienced aromatherapists and CAM practitioners looking for a highly reputable route of progression. As a governing body and registered charity, with a long-standing reputation for the dissemination of scientific knowledge about aromatherapy, the IFA has a responsibility to ensure that the standards of practice and training in the UK and abroad are of the highest and meet the expectations of government health agencies. Devised by industry experts, our curriculum draw on over 30 years of experience and expertise. Designed to prepare learners for employment in a variety of roles in spas, complementary therapy clinics, hospitals, hospices, special care units, consultancy and private practice. We believe whole heartedly that learning should be inspiring, empowering and above all enjoyable. Our courses are only taught by centres which have completed the IFA’s rigorous approval process, and are committed to offering learners a high standard of training.
