For those who’ve made the decision to pursue a career in the healing arts, no matter your discipline, finding the right training program is essential. Students want to make sure they get the skills and opportunities that will prepare them for a career in their chosen discipline. One of the best ways is to achieve that is through an accredited program that offers real-world, hands-on-experience practicums.
When combined with focused, academic philosophies of history, art, and science of the discipline, hands-on experience becomes one of the most effective ways to learn. Hands-on learning pairs students with real clients, under the guidance of licensed and experienced teachers.
When students and instructors work side by side, students feel as if they are an active participant and not just a learner. Done in real-time, students can get instant feedback from teachers and advice for development. These clinical and in-class situations help students develop their confidence that prepares them for work outside of the program.
In addition to hands-on and on-the-job training, students should look for a program that provides networking, mentorships, and job placement assistance. The good news is careers in the healing arts are growing. Employment as a massage therapist is projected to grow 22 percent between now and 2024, much faster than the average of all occupations. Employment for yoga instructors is estimated to grow 13 percent over the next ten years.
