The APA is a professional association and not an accrediting body of Ayurvedic Courses.

We are aware that there are many courses available in the marketplace which purport to train people as Ayurvedic practitioners and therapists but it is outside the scope and ability of the APA to audit all the courses available either in the UK or abroad (India especially).  Our membership entrance criteria have been set to assist those interested in studying Ayurveda in choosing a course that is right for them.  In setting membership criteria, we are trying to preserve the authenticity of the science of Ayurveda without dilution.
