ACHO Member Schools

All our Member Schools agree to follow the ACHO Training Standards for their accredited courses. You will need to study with an ACHO Member School if you wish to be listed on the ACHO Practitioner Register once you are qualified. Our retired Members no longer offer ACHO accredited training  courses but may  provide continuing professional development courses for therapists and healers.

All ACHO Member Schools are eligible for membership of the Crystal Therapy Council (CTC), the lead body for Crystal Therapy in the UK.



Member Schools

Each school teaches Crystal Healing Therapy practitioner diploma courses that last for at least two years. They include in their Diploma courses the agreed ACHO Core Curriculum that makes up a maximum of one half of the course. ACHO Recommends that any Diploma course you sign up for  should provide around 180 hours tutor-present. 

Many ACHO schools also provide shorter Certificate courses covering the ACHO Core Curriculum (around 90 hours, tutored) and some also provide Foundation courses (around 50 hours). The Foundation level course may be delivered by some schools as a correspondence course provided there is a tutor present practical assessment day. Schools may teach the core curriculum via accredited modules as laid out in the ACHO Training Standards.

Please contact individual schools for details of their syllabus, fee structure and application form. You can use our Course Diary to find a course.
