Professional Associations

The N.S.K.S. has been accredited as a professional and postgraduate training institute by a number of professional associations that represent -among others- the interests of shiatsu therapists. These organisations are K.T.N.O, (which has accredited the diploma course and post graduate courses as H.B.O level (Hoger Beroepsonderwijs = Higher Professional Education in the Netherlands) B.A.T.C., N.V.S.T., V.B.A.G., L.V.N.G., S.V.N. (Shiatsu vereniging Nederland), CAT (Collectief Alternatieve Therapeuten) Students can decide for themselves which association they would like to join. 

Zhong TCM 

The Zhong is the Dutch association for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a national professional association for TCM therapists covering all areas of TCM. The postgraduate education is accredited entirely by the Zhong.

The Do In Teacher Full Diploma Education has also been accredited by the Zhong TCM, NWP and NVST and  by the KTNO as a professional and related diploma course.

K.T.N.O. (HBO level accreditation institute)


KTNO stands for the Dutch words Kwaliteit Toetsing Natuurgerichte Opleidingen which can be translated as Quality and Testing of Nature-oriented Educations. Their website is only available in Dutch, but can perhaps be read using Google Translator. Their website can be found here. Our school has been accredited by the KTNO as a higher vocational education (HBO in the Netherlands). The different post-graduate seminars have also been accredited as such on that level. The page displaying the information on our school can be found here.


Professional association - DUTCH SCHOOL FOR CLASSICAL SHIATSU 
The B.A.T.C. employs five principles of natural medicine. Upon subscription, students will receive forms to indicate how their activities and studies are organised by these five principles. Because the N.S.K.S. has been accredited and certified by the BATC, students from our school do not need to fill in these forms anymore. Referring to the N.S.K.S. suffices.

Students can already join the BATC after passing the exam of the third level. This will enable qualifying for coverage from health insurers. Of course, at the same time, students are expected to pass the fourth level, and to obtain their diploma in medical basic knowledge. The latter diploma is not offered by the BATC, although a list of certified institutes that do offer this training, is given.

The policy and internal organisation of the B.A.T.C. is still subject to changes. We will inform you as soon as possible, should any changes occur that impact Shiatsu therapists. Their website can be found at http://www.batc.nl/ (also only in Dutch).


Professional association - DUTCH SCHOOL FOR CLASSICAL SHIATSU 

The N.V.S.T. offers Medical Basic Knowledge (higher vocational level). Joining N.V.S.T. enables taking the exam through them. Donating members receive an invitation to the exam annually. More information can be found on their website, which is only available in Dutch: http://www.nvst.nl/. Translate with Google

We are also recognised by the C.A.T, V.V.E

Please remember that all therapists and students who are members of any of these associations will receive a 10% discount on the course fees
