The Level 4 Diploma is already accredited by the Open Awards for OFQUAL, additionally it is accredited by the Animal Health Professions Register (AHPR) for direct entry to the register within the Soft Tissue and Massage subgroup.

Completion of the course also leads to entitlement to membership of the elite Equine Sports Massage Association.

Recognition and accreditation by RAMP, AHPR and Open Awards reinforce the position of the Level 4 Diploma in Equine Sports Massage as a high quality course and the premier route to training as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist.

RAMP accreditation further illustrates the difference between the ATSL L4 course and other, unaccredited training programmes which do not, in real terms, result in formal qualifications for learners.
