Professional Courses

AOI offers courses in a wide range of animal related studies. Some are indeed, osteopathic, but others offer fundamental skills that would benefit many animal practitioners and veterinary professionals. We also run talks and courses that are suited to owners. These are particularly good for those who want to learn more about their animals and how to care for them day to day. As a result of the current COVID crisis, we are working hard to extend our online offering. If you wish to be put on our mailing list, please complete the form at the bottom of the page.

Some of our courses are more suited to the osteopathic, physiotherapy, veterinarian and advanced bodywork audience, but we also run plenty of workshops/courses that add benefit to other animal practitioners too. All we ask, is that you are at a suitable level of education for the course to which you apply and that you provide mapped evidence of any past training (as required by the prerequisite of any given event) if you are applying for an academic course.

Our programmes and workshops are intended to educate those who wish to learn and/or adapt osteopathic concepts, principles and techniques for use on animal patients. As such, we urge delegates to be fully qualified in a professional field (such as osteopathy, physiotherapy or veterinary medicine), before applying for one of our courses, as experience has taught us, that you will find it much easier with a foundation of knowledge. We do consider students of osteopathic medicine, who are in their penultimate year or above, but they need to be exceeding in their human studies, such that it will no affect the outcome of your core degree. We do however, recommend that you speak to your [intended] insurance company before pursuing an application if you have any concerns about practicing. before you hold a baseline degree qualification.

For those who fall under the above categories, you may wish to go to our course specific pages under “Professional Courses” tab. Here you will find Level 1-3 courses for both canine and equine pathways. Take a look around. Decide what suits your level of learning and snd us an email. Our course pages are expensive, so most anything you need to know, you will find. But in the event that you have a specific question, please write to us at

If you’re looking for something a little softer, as an interim path, then student practitioners are welcome to join our owner online series, in which they can learn the basics of canine and equine care. For more information, please complete the contact form below and we will add you to our mailing list.

We work in association with the European School of Osteopathy (as an internal validator), to offer transparency and quality to all our students. The ESO issues CPD certificates to AOI students who have completed full “Staged” courses. For more information, send us an email.

If you would like just us to stay in touch or be informed about our courses as they arise, please put your email in the box below and you will be added to our mailing list.
