NB. National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of the standards set for a particular occupation. The NOS are statements of competence and are used to measure outcomes. These standards are written to describe what should happen when carrying out functions of an occupation, in this case, Reiki. The Core Curriculum sets out a framework and threshold, which is used to develop courses. The Core Curriculum for Reiki should be read alongside the NOS for Reiki.
