Training To Become Spiritualists' National Union (SNU) Healing Medium

All Trainee Healing Mediums will normally spend two years training during which time they under the formal training requirements of the SNU Healing Committee in accordance with the Code of Conduct and Healing and the Law.  Trainees must pass the H1 – SNU Healing Education Course – thus gaining theoretical knowledge. This is one of the courses in the SNU Education Scheme and Trainees are responsible for registering as a student and making application for the H1 Course.  During the two years they have practical experience, under supervision, of all aspects of the healing group’s work. After this training period Healers may apply for an upgrading assessment to Approved Healer status. The upgrading assessment will consist of a practical and oral test taken at District level.
