|All members of the Crystal Therapy Council teach to the same, agreed core curriculum, which states that:
:: Schools and Colleges offering Diplomas in Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy must provide at least 180 hours of face-to-face tuition spread over a minimum of two years
:: A maximum of 90 of the 180 hours of tuition to include the agreed Training Standards/Core Curriculum. The Core Curriculum is accredited and validated at 24 OCN/NVQ credits at Level 3
All students are taught and assessed by fully qualified and experienced, registered and insured Professional Crystal Practitioners. Teachers within the colleges/schools must hold a formal, recognised teaching qualification. Principals/Teachers must undertake a minimum of 12 hours per annum relevant Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
Crystal Healing/Therapy Training Standards and VSR
These standards have been agreed and implemented in order to promote the process of Voluntary Self-Regulation (VSR). As complementary therapies are, as yet, not regulated by statute, the key reason for this is to aid the public in discriminating between a practitioner who has undertaken extensive training/practise and someone who has undertaken a short course or workshop.
The Crystal Therapy Council (CTC) is a register of schools offering courses in crystal therapy and crystal healing.
There are a total of 30 schools that meet the training, assessment and management standards set by CTC and lodged with the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapy (GRCCT).
On the 30th August 2011, the Federal Regulatory Council of the GRCCT acknowledged, appointed and affirmed the Crystal Therapy Council as the Lead Body and Professional Council for crystal healing and crystal therapy.
Qualifications gained from CTC schools are also recognised by the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT)
The current board members are:
Sue Lilly : Chair CTC
Brian Parsons : Secretary CTC
Nicola Leslie-Gallagher : Treasurer
