By attending a series of seminars and completing written, oral and practical examinations, you can earn a highly respected certification in a specialty area.
How Specialty Certification Works
Certification is designed to offer a series of seminars, which culminate in a comprehensive examination consisting of written, oral and practical testing to define competency in a chosen field. To earn each Certification, a therapist attends a series of seminars, culminating in a comprehensive online review and face-to-face examination process.
Certification requires completion of the required seminars either as a structured continuing education process or as a part of one of our post-professional degree programs. Taking the home study courses for graduate credit is not required for Certification, although taking them for credit toward a post-professional degree is recommended for maximum educational benefit.
Certification Review and Exam
Upon registration, the certification candidate receives access to a robust online study guide. The study guide includes technique videos, as well as sample questions and study suggestions from instructors.
Certification is a three-day in-person experience consisting of instructor-led reviews that provide the student an opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from instructors. On the fourth day, a written exam is given followed by a series of oral and practical examinations. The standard sought is the safe application of advanced clinical skills in the areas tested. Results are confidential.
