Reiki Australia has announced the introduction of a non-accredited certificate course in professional development for Reiki treatment practitioners. The course addresses knowledge and professional responsibilities that are important for all healthcare workers and supports the National Code of Conduct for health care workers, which is a legal requirement for health practitioners in most Australian states.
With an objective of supporting best practice for Reiki treatment practitioners, it is open to Reiki Australia members who have Reiki I and II and are interested in professional Reiki treatment practice.
The course units are:
Unit 1 Codes of Ethics; Codes of Conduct
- Understand the nature of personal and professional Reiki treatment practice
- Comply with professional standards
Unit 2 Effective Professional Relationships
- Communicate effectively with clients and colleagues
Unit 3 Teamwork; Managing Conflict
- Contribute to effective teamwork
Unit 4 Records, Privacy and Referral
- Ensure an understanding of client rights and the elements of informed consent
Unit 5 Client and Workplace Safety
- Implement WHS/OHS requirements
Unit 6 Infection Control
- Implement and maintain infection control practices
Units are all designed for home study. Each unit will require a minimum of around 12 hours over up to two months, in study and the completion of exercises and assignments. Completion of each unit will earn 10 CPD points.
Apart from Unit 1, which must be completed first, units can be undertaken in any order. A statement of attainment will be provided after completing each unit, and a Certificate in Professional Development for Reiki Treatment awarded on completion of all six units.
Reiki Practitioner members who complete Unit 1 will qualify (conditional on having insurance, current first aid and minimum practice requirements) for Reiki Australia’s Accredited Reiki Treatment Practitioner membership category, which represents excellence in Reiki treatment practice.
