ACPOHE regularly runs courses to enable physiotherapists to gain the specialist knowledge required to practice in this field. ACPOHE are working closely with the CSP to accredit all of the courses.

The courses are stand-alone.  If you are starting out in Occupational Health and Ergonomics, we recommend that you attend "Introduction to Occupational Health for Physiotherapists" and "Introduction to Applied Ergonomics for Physiotherapists" first as they introduce some of the basic concepts. Some of our courses such as "Office WorkStation Ergonomics (DSE) Level 2" is offered at a more advanced level for physiotherapists wishing to further expand their skills in a particular area and may have a number of pre-requisites.  Where any pre-requisites exist this will be clearly indicated in the course information.

Attendance at ACPOHE courses is open to all ACPOHE members.  We welcome attendance on our courses by non-members. However, we do encourage delegates of our courses to become an ACPOHE member as this will further support your professional practice in the areas that you have learnt about.  To simplify our administration we now request that you become a member first and you will then pay the reduced course fee.

Please address enquiries about course content to tutors and general and booking enquiries to ACPOHE admin at
