Due to the potential for serious injury when dry needling is incorrectly administered, and as no other trigger point needling course has been submitted for CPD approval to NTC we are not in a position to assess the ability, or lack thereof, of graduates of other courses as tutors and content are unknown to NTC. Therefore all participants must hold the National Qualification in Trigger Point Needling from the National Training Centre.

All participants are expected to participate in the hands-on portion of the workshop.
