Please note that there is no such thing as ‘internationally accredited’. Each country has its own accreditation, especially in the field of Natural Therapies, also regulations change from time to time. It can’t be guaranteed that the information below is correct at all times.

CNM focuses on having its courses recognised by relevant associations in Ireland and the UK. Thanks to CNM’s contacts in Europe and internationally, CNM has official accreditation in a number of countries throughout the world,  making graduates are eligible to practice in many countries.
