Level 3

BIEP Level 3: Practitioner Training

Level 3 is aimed at people who want to use the remedies in a professional context, incorporating the remedies into their work as part of a comprehensive health recovery program. It is also open to people not practicing at the moment, but who intend to do so in the future.

This course emphasizes the role of Practitioners as mentors and teachers of the system, for the transmission of skills and knowledge to their clients.

As with Level 2, approved Level 3 courses are classroom taught and also cover a range of activities and work to be performed at home. Students in Level 3 must take a written test, do reflective work and prepare compositions. Finally, students are expected to carry out a written follow-up on a certain number of case studies.

Successful completion of the Level 3 course opens up the opportunity for students to apply for listing on the Bach Foundation’s International Register of Bach Flower Practitioners.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a deep understanding of the subtleties of each flower.
  • Raise personal awareness through interactive exercises and experiences.
  • Develop and practice consultation skills.
  • Study the Code of Practice.
  • Carry on continuous personal and professional development.

Duration: Four days, 8 hrs per day, followed by a period of six months of supervised distance learning.

The BIEP Level 3 course consists of 3 phases:

  • PHASE ONE is the four-day course. You will study the practical use of the remedies, including how to perform a consultation. You will have the opportunity to refine your knowledge of the remedies and their applications. The program is quite intensive, and at the end of the four days you will take a written exam. Successful completion of the first phase will allow you to continue on to the second part of Level 3.
  • PHASE TWO is a self-study course involving a written test consisting of a series of cases and questions about flowers that students will work on at home and, when completed, send back to the appropriate person, depending on the teacher and country where they began their Level 3 work. Successful completion will allow you to continue on to the final part of Level 3.
  • PHASE THREE is a three-month practice period in your own working environment, during which you will put your theoretical knowledge to work. You will be asked to write up three case studies and report on their evolution over a three-month span. After this, you will need to write a series of compositions.

Prerequisite: Completion of Levels 1 and 2.

At the end of each course, students will receive a Certificate of Attendance approved by the Dr. Edward Bach Centre in England. The Level 3 Diploma is sent to each student after successfully completing their consultations and case studies.
