Originally everything was offered in just one course, only offered one course, the Full Professional Course.  However, as Beverley was approached a number of times by people who wanted to learn more about using essential oils, but who didn’t want to take the Anatomy and Physiology portion and be a professional aromatherapists, that she looked into splitting part of the course out into the Aromatherapy 101 course. This then became a stand alone course for those who wanted to have a good introduction into the use of essential oils, their safety precautions, blending etc etc. Those who want to carry on their training and learn more including more oils, anatomy and physiology, client consultations etc could go and do the Aromatherapy 201 course, which is why there is the prerequisite of completing Aromatherapy 101 in order to be eligible to enrol in Aromatherapy 201. Nothing that is covered in Aromatherapy 101 is repeated in Aromatherapy 201, however material from 101 is referred to in 201 and built upon. It is expected that those studying the 201 course will know and understand everything that is in the 101 course.  So the two courses are interlinked and while the Aromatherapy 101 can be taken separately, those wishing to take the Aromatherapy 201 course must first take the Aromatherapy 101 to ensure that they have all the information that is offered in both courses. There is the option of purchasing the Aromatherapy 101 and Aromatherapy 201 courses separately, or of purchasing the Full Professional Course (Aromatherapy 101 and Aromatherapy 201) at a discount.
