In addition you will need to study to prepare for assessment on Day 2.

Important: You will need to bring a baby-sized doll on both days of the course – the Infant Massage Instructor doll (60cm unweighted – 3/4 month size) is available from Touch Needs Alternatively any baby doll roughly 60cm long with moveable arms and legs at the hips and shoulders will be suitable
