AOI's Certificate Programme - Canada Pathway
We are pleased to announce that from 2022, AOI is running practicums in Canada, with the collaboration of CIECBW in Calgary, Alberta.
The relationship with Equinology Canada, a long-established school of equine and canine bodywork, means that we can offer components of our Academic Pathway to Canadian osteopaths, veterinarians, EEBWII graduates and veterinary MSK practitioners with face-to-face practicums, in Canada.
Existing AOI students, may also reach out and utilise this opportunity if they want to travel as part of their studies.
AOI Practicums Are Available in Canada 🇨🇦
If you would like to complete year one of AOI’s Certificate Programmes (Equine AOIE01 or Canine AOIC01) – with a practicum in Calgary in 2024, now is the time to let us know.
We are planning to start the enrolment process formally by the 1st May 2023 but that doesn’t mean you can’t apply earlier. We intend to start the online component of the course on (or close to) 1st November 2023 with a practicum in Canada in the Fall of 2024.
If you want more information about the course, ask for more details today. Email: email@example.com
AOI prides itself on the exceptional quality of the practicums we run, knowing only too well that osteopathic technique cannot be taught or learned solely online. This is neither safe nor suitable for such a clinically sensitive topic. That is why we are super excited to be able to deliver practicums in Canada on a regular basis in conjunction with Equinology Canada, who’s own teaching quality is also first class.

Which courses are available in Canada?
The Certificate Programme in Canada will run in two formats: equine and canine. This is the equivalent of year one of the Diploma Programme.
The course includes:
- A bespoke online teaching course for the theoretical elements of the programme. This has been written specifically for hybrid learning and can be studied from home, as suits you.
- EIGHT days of hands-on practical workshops – Two (four-day) high-quality practical workshops.
- Recommended student activities to keep you on track.
- In-course quizzes to check your learning.
- Written and practical assessments.
- Online community page
- Networking opportunities.
- Access to our Student Support Manager
- LIVE drop-in events for Q&As
- Externship post-practicum to consolidate learning.
Once students have completed the Certificate Programme they have the option to join the Diploma year. Much of the coursework is built online and practicums will be available in Denmark (a favourite with the Canadians) and in the UK.
We are willing to run the Diploma year in Canada, but Certificate students (on the Canada pathway) will be asked at the year one practicum if they want to take this option and only if a group of 10 students (minimum) commit, will a special practicum be arranged.
Students who want the Diploma year run in Canada will be asked to commit to a 50% non-refundable deposit at time of booking. Without exception. Flexible payments can be used for the other 50% of year two.

Please note: Equinology EEBWII graduates (post 2015) may also be eligible via a specialist Conversion Course. Click HERE for more details.
