Electrotherapist careers

Could you be a qualified Electrotherapist or are you looking for electrotherapist jobs? Are you interested in holistic or alternative healing? Why not turn your hobby into a career? If you think you have the skills and temperament to work in the Leisure Sector, why not look at electrotherapist jobs? As an electrotherapist, you use an electric current to stimulate skin and muscle with the aim of healing and increasing function and mobility. To be a qualified electrotherapist you need an interest in anatomy and healing, a precise and analytical brain and a steady hand. But what courses do you need to take to be a qualified Electrotherapist?

If you'd like to be qualified, you'll need to learn a variety of techniques, including Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, Ultrasound, Pulsed Shortwave Diathermy, Interferential Therapy, TECAR Therapy, Laser Therapy and Combination Therapy. There are plenty of courses on offer at specialty private colleges, or ones taught by licensed professionals that you can take to learn the various treatments you'll need to be employable. When choosing a college or course, there are a few things that are important to keep in mind.

The first is obviously to consider what professional accreditation the course has to offer. The recognized level of professional accreditation needed to do this job is either a NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) at Level 3, or the international Qualification of IHBC (International Health and Beauty Council) Unit 18 and 19. Next you'll want to consider whether your course leaders are accredited professionals, whether the intensity and duration of the course will leave you feeling confident to practice after you've graduated, does the training cover a wide variety of the above-mentioned skills, and does the school or course have positive links and connections within the industry.

Industry organizations such as FHT, BABTAC, GPBT, IFHB and ICHT can offer advice and recommend well regarded schools and courses. Why not give one of them a call today, and take the first step towards a new and satisfying career?
