I am delighted to include a link to our new College of Five Element Acupuncture in Ireland. This is currently the only College offering a full undergraduate course in the European Union in Five Element Acupuncture. We have structured the course to allow people continue with working and/or looking after family etc... by having classes once a month for the first two years. Classes will be held on Thursdays/Fridays/Saturdays and Sundays again to minimise the effect for the prospective student on the working week. The cost of attending the three year course is highly competitive when compared with other Acupuncture Courses available.
The Course is recognised and has attained professional status from two bodies:
• The Worsley Institute – the umbrella body for Classical Five Element Acupuncture worldwide
• Graduates from the College will be eligible to apply to the Acupuncture Council of Ireland (ACI) for membership. The Council is responsible for the regulation and maintenance of a Register of Acupuncturists. Only fully qualified and insured practitioners can become members of ACI. All members are bound by a Code of Ethics and Code of Practice, which is strictly enforced by the Executive Committee of the ACI, thus offering a guarantee of confidence to any patient seeking treatment. Membership will give the graduate access to a ‘block’ insurance policy of professional indemnity and public liability cover. Patients of Members can apply to their private health insurance (Quinn Healthcare/AVIVA/VHI) for refunds on the cost of their treatments.
The Course Structure will also be attractive to those living outside of Ireland – the course is being held 20 minutes away from Dublin International Airport and flights to Dublin have become low cost with the advent of budget flight companies. In addition the cost of attending the three year course is highly competitive when compared with other international acupuncture courses available. For prospective students living in the UK - the favourable €/£ exchange rate means that the cost of the course and other related costs eg accommodation will be cheaper than at home.
