Train in Systematic Kinesiology to use it as an adjunct to your existing therapy

Because of the added gains using Systematic Kinesiology many practitioners from all complementary professions can choose to use Systematic Kinesiology as an adjunct to their existing therapy. ASK recommends the Foundation course 1-V1 as it fulfils and exceeds the KNOS requirement so on successful completion of the course the practitioner is entitled to use the term “kinesiologist.”

Learn about Systematic Kinesiology for health enhancement for yourself, family and friends.

Continuous professional development (CPD)

What is CPD?

Continuing Professional development (CPD) is a way in which professional members of ASK can improve and broaden their knowledge of Kinesiology and related subjects in order to maintain the highest standards both in practice and in the transfer of knowledge to other students, professionals, clients and the public.

More ...

Nowadays all professional bodies recognise the need to have CPD. The field of Kinesiology and related subjects is continually changing and advancing. Qualifications become outdated as a result of new research and experiences.

Role of ASK & ASK CPD Requirements

ASK promotes, supports and facilitates lifelong professional learning, research and good practice. ASK requires that all Professional members do at least 21 hours for their CPD which is equivalent to 3 days post graduate training a year or 

More ...

2 days post graduate training of 14 hours plus one case study. ASK members who teach or attend exhibitions which promote ASK may also use this experience towards their annual CPD requirement.

CPD is mandatory to maintain their Professional membership of ASK.

It is the member's responsibility to submit to ASK annually evidence of their CPD so that they will be able to retain their membership status.

Personal Portfolio

CPD gives the Professional Kinesiologist the opportunity to stay up to date with current information about Kinesiology research, expand their knowledge and skills to meet the needs of clients and students and to develop their own Professional development portfolio – PDP.

Ultimate goal

A person who adopts a CPD programme to build up their personal portfolio as a Professional Systematic Kinesiologist will ultimately contribute to maintaining the high level of service to all their students and clients; contribute to the high reputation of Systematic Kinesiology, promote and protect the good name of Systematic Kinesiology and ultimately conduct themselves with integrity and to high Professional standards.

Does my course qualify for CPD?

Details in the form of course title, topics covered, tutor and related therapy can be submitted to ASK for approval by either a student or the tutor at anytime.

More ...

You need to provide enough detail to allow ASK to judge whether or not it is sufficiently suitable or relevant to the Kinesiologist:
· Course name
· Details of course content
· Relevance to Kinesiology
· Tutor name
· College to which the tutor is affiliated

What types of courses qualify?

Day, weekend and evening courses, seminars, workshops, conferences, distance learning courses (if a certificate of completion is obtained)

In assessment of a course for CPD ASK will be primarily concerned with its relevance to increasing the knowledge of the student in Kinesiology and related subjects and not purely related to enjoyment of learning.

Who decides?

The Trustees can make the decision and / or can nominate a Professional Kinesiologist to oversee the accreditation of courses for CPD

What does the public want?

They want a therapist who is competent in their field of expertise, is trained to the appropriate level and standard, belongs to a Professional body that ensures the maintenance of standards. A Therapist who complies with the code of conduct and regulations of their association and is up to date with the current literature and practice of their therapy and open to new thoughts and ideas to make sure there is continual progress in their field.

Draft Kinesiology National Occupational Standards

 

The Association of Systematic Kinesiology (A.S.K.) has been intimately involved in forming the draft kinesiology national occupational standards (KNOS).

Skills for Health (Sector Skills Council), are the Standards Setting Body for Health in the UK. They have been working with representative groups within Kinesiology in order to develop National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Kinesiology.

The NOS may be downloaded by clicking onto the headings listed below:

Please note you will require Adobe Acrobat to read the NOS. (Download the free Adobe Acrobat reader here)

National Occupational Standards (NOS) are the building blocks for developing qualification structures (including, but not limited to, NVQ/SVQ accreditation) and can be used by forming and established Regulatory Bodies, to define therapy/discipline areas, the Practitioner role, and as the basis for qualifications and progression within the sector. 

The Association of Systematic Kinesiology, being a professional organisation, can also use the standards to establish frameworks and pre-requirements for entry into our professional body, training courses, and progression / continuing professional development routes thereafter.
