All the RHTs of HKATH have attended at least 117 hours of theory lessons (including elementary, intermediate, advanced and practical courses), and accumulated no less than 400 professional supervised internship hours before they are eligible for registration under HKATH. As a result, RHTs of HKATH are equipped with both theoretical and practical training, taking into the account of such strong background, their performance has actually been maintained at a very high standard.
