There are four integrated components of the ICCHP student-centric blended learning approach.
Each component is designed to support and assist students in developing a specific and unique set of skills, so that they can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed in order to confidently practice clinical hypnosis in a safe, ethical and professional manner.
Combined together these components provide students with a comprehensive learning experience.

For each module students attend 16 hours of facilitated classroom practical learning activity. Hypnosis and therapeutic techniques are demonstrated and students have the opportunity to practice these techniques in a structured, safe and supervised learning environment with fellow students.
For each module students complete 75 hours of online theoretical learning, consisting of reading and research assignments, online assessments, and the participation in shared learning activities.
For each module students complete at least 4 hours of tutorial instruction. Tutorial instruction provides students with the opportunity to address and work through any issues or challenges related to their learning, that they may be experiencing. Students are also able to practice the techniques learned and discuss, evaluate and reflect on their learning during tutorial sessions.
Student practitioners complete at least 2 hours of clinical supervision for each 6 hours of patient clinical session time. Students can use as much mentor support as needed. This support is available as part of the student's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) even after the student completes their studies and continues in their professional practice.
