Accreditation

American Association of Drugless Practitioners

The American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) promotes an enhanced professional image and prestige among practitioners of traditional and non-traditional therapies and methodologies.

AADP fosters unity among 'grass roots' practitioners and those with advanced academic credentials. The AADP's national and international membership body is made up of MDs, NDs, DCs, OMDs, PhDs, DDs, RNs, herbalists, and other 'drugless' practitioners. The AADP brings reputable chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists and other 'drugless' healthcare providers together to share ideas and to help educate the public that good health can be obtained without the use of drugs.

Benefits of Accreditation

  • On completion of your Stonebridge course, and once your AADP membership has been approved, your name, along with our other qualified members, will be made available to the general public - allowing potential patient referral of 'drugless' health care providers.
  • The AADP will call or write to state licensing boards to inform them of a practitioner's qualifications, if requested.
  • Internet web page design and hosting available at no cost to AADP members.
  • Licensed laboratories offering non-invasive patient testing will be made available to member practitioners. These laboratory tests can bring hundreds of dollars into your practice each month.
  • Consultations on how to start a practice or increase an existing one can be provided.
  • The AADP has made a special arrangement for its members to be eligible to apply for low cost Professional Liability Insurance including General Liability Insurance in one policy.
  • So if you are interested in saving both time and money, why not become board certified by the AADP? If you would like to visit the AADP's website, click here.
NCFE

NCFE is the UK's longest established awarding body, recognised as a highly professional and responsive organisation, committed to maintaining excellent customer service and a friendly approach.

NCFE is one of the UK’s fastest growing national awarding bodies, designing and awarding qualifications that are nationally recognised to meet the needs of learners and employers.

NCFE is recognised as an awarding body by the qualification regulators ('regulators') for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The regulators are the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales and the Council for Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.

NCFE provide a wide range of qualifications accredited by Ofqual at different levels and in a variety of subject areas. NCFE also offer NVQs, Key Skills, Basic Skills and Entry Level qualifications.

Accreditation by NCFE is a guarantee of quality. It means that a learning programme has been scrutinised and approved by an independent panel of experienced educational professionals and is quality audited biannually by NCFE. The centre delivering the programmes has been licensed by NCFE on the basis of its own quality systems.

Learners successfully completing NCFE accredited programmes receive an externally accredited and nationally recognised NCFE certificate.

Our NCFE accredited courses are accredited to various levels (from level 1 – level 5). These courses lead to a nationally recognised NCFE certificate for successful learners. That means that the course is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to that level on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Last year over a quarter of a million learners from almost 1000 training organisations chose NCFE as the awarding body to help them move their careers forward.

Further Note

Mentioned above are just two of the many associations that have accredited our organisation. As well as these, you may also be able to take advantage of all the benefits associated with our other accrediting organisations and associations. For full details on these, please click here.
