Standards of Professional Conduct
The following conduct is seen as essential by ACOMT, to reassure all students and the general public of the standards being worked too.
Although these issues are rarely a matter of dispute, inappropriate conduct can and will prevent a student from graduating, or even mean s/he is asked to leave the course with no financial recourse.
1. Being sensitive to others’ needs; having the consistent ability to establish, maintain and develop rapport. In particular, respecting boundaries around appropriate touch, showing discretion around undressing and draping.
2. At the same time, taking care of oneself e.g. undertaking bodywork when confident that one has the stamina and ability to focus.
3. Taking necessary steps, if needed, to resolve issues with other course members. Seeking support including mediation, as required, from the training team. Each student must treat their fellow students with courteous respect at all times, threatening behaviour, abuse, swearing will be deemed as gross misconduct.

5. Social reliability: being on time; keeping promises; honouring confidentiality; respecting professional and ethical requirements; maintaining boundaries.
6. Maintaining a professional appearance; personal hygiene, tidiness and appropriate clothing.
7. Duty of care, if any student believes that there is a child, minor or any person or persons placed in physical or mortal danger it is their duty of care to report this to the appropriate authorities.
