In addition to our basic TTouch® courses for personal learning, we also offer courses that can lead to certification.

Practitioner Track (Practitioner Certification)

Lindy Dekker TTouch Instructor

The Practitioner track is geared towards individuals currently working towards Tellington TTouch Practitioner certification but cannot attend the number of hands on trainings typically required for completion.

The  traditional Practitioner program requires attendance at six, 5 or 6 day hands-on workshops plus case studies.

To stay current with the present travel restrictions we have updated out program.

We now offer Practitioner Certification that may be completed entirely online and remotely.

Tellington TTouch Practitioners for Dogs may work one on one with clients as official representatives of the work.

Practitioner Certification via Online Learning

Becoming a Practitioner with our Online Courses requires a certain amount of self discipline, interest in learning and a commitment to practice.

For those who have not previously attended any in person trainings, the first step would be to attend an “Intro” or “Level 1” Interactive course.

After the initial course, students continue taking sessions to amass 60 credits to cover the core curriculum. This includes taking Level 1 and Level 2 two times, ideally with at least 2 different instructors. As well as the “Working with Clients” course.

In addition to these courses, a variety of Electives may count for credits, such as “TTouch-For-You®” or any dog or companion animal related Interactive course that has not been mentioned previously.

Students may also choose to add a single “Online Course” that may count as credits, this must be a course that is not included in the Intro, Level 1, or Level 2 options.  These are completely self paced.

Once a student has earned at least 60 credits and completed course assignments, including the 5 detailed Case Studies; they are eligible for the evaluation process.

You are welcome to attend more Interactive Courses, Register for Elective courses, or enlist the support of a mentor prior to evaluation.

The nature of the Tellington TTouch Method is that learning is somewhat “spiral” or “layered”. The more you learn, the more you refine and add to existing skills and knowledge. For this reason taking any Level of Interactive course more than once will NOT feel redundant.

 

Certification  is contingent on the evaluation of the coursework, videos, and overall skill level.
