Other Programme Requirements and Policies:
Anita Horry Academy (AHA) prides itself to have had exceptional relationships with its former students and thus does not envisage any situations whereby the school terminates student contracts. However, in order to safeguard continued progress in all our programmes, it is required to include a contingency clause in our terms as follows.
We will contact you a few weeks prior to your course date to confirm the location and times, please allow from 8am-7pm each day until we confirm these with you.
Just so you know, you cannot miss any day of the course or arrive later/leave earlier as there is a lot of content to cover and we want to make sure you get the most out of the course and become an amazing and confident instructor!
Arriving late / leaving early
As just mentioned above, since we operate a tight schedule on the course any missed time, whether part of a day or a full day will not be recuperated. If you need to miss any part of a course, we recommend rescheduling your course to a separate private session outside the course date. Please note there is an additional charge to this which is covered below.
All Anita Horry Academy (AHA) Teacher Training Certification courses involve both theory and practical examinations throughout the course. Both theory and practical exams must be passed with a pass of a minimum of 75% in order to receive certification; this ensures we maintain the highest standard of instructors possible. Obviously, our aim is to help you as much as possible to be the best you can be. At the end of each level, there will be a practical assessment. If you are progressing well through your studies but somehow have not grasped the teaching aspect yet; you will have the opportunity to carry on practising the modules studied and submit a video of yourself teaching for us to review at a later date once you feel more confident.
It is uncommon for this to happen, but if you fail the theory and practical exams and need a lot more study and practice, you will be required to re-sit the next available course and this will incur a resit fee. See below for fees for each course. We want you to succeed and are with you all the way. Prior to any course, reading the required materials and watching videos and practising further will help you to come into the course as well prepared as possible.
Upon completion of each course and passing the required final examinations, you will be certified to teach the exercises learned in that course. Please refer to the individual course details.
To date, Anita Horry Academy (AHA) has neither recommended nor dissuaded its graduates from seeking additional certification beyond their Anita Horry Academy (AHA) certification – a certification that is highly regarded within the wellness profession. Anita Horry Academy (AHA) stands behind its training and certification programs as the highest calibre and most comprehensive of its kind in the industry. To achieve Anita Horry Academy (AHA) certification, students must receive a minimum score of 75% (practical and written) in order to pass. Pass marks in both the practical and theory sections must be met in order to achieve certification.
The main reason behind accreditation is for insurance purposes which you can receive after completing our courses.

Education and Age Requirements

Students are required to undertake the obligatory online Functional Anatomy course at €249 prior to taking up any of our certification programmes. It is irrelevant if the student has taken an anatomy course or has prior anatomical knowledge as this course is specifically geared for our Academy. The Functional Anatomy course is payable upon online registration to the course and is non-refundable.
CHANGE OF STATUS
Students of the programme become graduates after completing all payment, passing all coursework and exams, and submitting completed timesheets.
Should a student wish to extend their training, they may do so in one of the following ways:
LEAVE OF ABSENCE
Leave of Absence refers to the term where the student, for exceptional circumstances, wishes to temporarily terminate the training so that they can recommence in the future.
Should a student require a leave of absence, they must submit a ‘Change of Status Form’. A student returning from a leave of absence would schedule a return interview with myself or a person designated by myself before re-entering the programme.
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE PROGRAMME
Should a student wish to withdraw from the programme, they would send a written request for withdrawal to myself or another person designated by myself.
If some of the following conditions apply and progress isn’t satisfactory, a student may be put on probation and action plan will be agreed upon in order to ensure successful completion.
As mentioned above, a student who repeatedly fails to maintain satisfactory progress as outlined above, violates safety regulations, interferes with other students’ learning, is disruptive, obscene, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or does not make timely tuition payments, is subject to immediate termination.
Readmission may be considered after the original payment agreement is paid in full and / or conduct issues have been resolved. A €500 re-entry fee is required, and the student must go through the admissions process again to determine reacceptance into the programme.
Your success is our commitment and we do understand that things might happen which would hinder your training process with our academy. Whilst we endeavour to be as flexible as we can with the course dates, we are, unfortunately unable to offer any refunds for change of minds or circumstances.
