Level 4


  1. Pre-requisites


The pre-requisite for the Level 4 Home Study Unit is completion of all of the previous levels of the Aura-Soma Colour Care Consultant training.



2. Aims


Level 4 can be compared to a module of a correspondence course, with your work being assigned to a trained Marker who will carefully read and respond to it. The aim of Level 4 is to stimulate the student to explore and deepen their own understanding of the Aura-Soma Colour System and the wider field of colour. Level 4 also provides an opportunity to review the way that a Registered Practitioner is working with clients in consultations and for the Practitioner to receive feedback and support where appropriate.



3. Content


To achieve these aims Level 4 comprises three components.
a) Questions and Answers
This component of the Level 4 work requires approximately 5,000 words based upon answering a series of set questions on various subjects, some Aura-Soma specific, others on the wider field of colour.
b) Consultation Records
The second component is the submission of 60 Consultation records. These will be reviewed by the Examiner as a means of monitoring Consultation practise. Each record will be of one Consultation involving a personal meeting between the Practitioner and the client. It is important that some of the Consultation records submitted are of follow up Consultations for returning clients. The Academy honours client confidentiality. Any identifying information on records must be removed before they are submitted to the Examiner.
c) 36 hours further study

The completion of a minimum of thirty-six hours of training in a prescribed subject is the third component. At present there are two options for students. You may either complete a course in Anatomy and Physiology or one in Consultation skills.

For either subject the course must involve a minimum of thirty-six hours of study. The course must also be acceptable to the Academy. Generally this means that the course is recognised by either the national educational or medical body of your country, or by another complementary medical body of your country. If you are uncertain as to whether a course will be acceptable or not please contact the Academy. A copy of a certificate from the school or teacher who has presented the course will be requested by the Academy as evidence of completion of this component of Level 4.

Once you have completed all three components of this level then you should inform the Academy by letter and enclose a cheque for the accompanying marking fee (currently £60) made payable to the Academy. The Academy will assign you a Marker to whom you may send your work for reading and response.



4. The Academy Recognition


Following submission of the Level 4 Home Study work, and once we have received confirmation from your Marker that your work is acceptable, you will receive a Level 4 Certificate from the Academy. It will then be possible for the student to register with the Academy as a Colour Care Consultant.

As with all registration certificates the Colour Care Consultant Certificate needs to be renewed annually. See sections on The Renewal Process and Practising Certificates for further information.
