SUSTAINING CERTIFICATION

SUSTAINING CERTIFICATION

The Master Teacher Council was given the charge by Certified Trainers to establish a procedure for the purpose of sustaining the integrity of their certification status.  Therefore, it has been determined that those who wish to keep their certification in good standing be required to attend one refresher workshop every five years. 

Attending any of the established Institute workshops taught by a Master Teacher or a pre-conference workshop designated for this purpose may fulfill this. Trainers may also host a regional refresher workshop led by a Master Teacher. This policy went into effect in January 2015. The “clock” began January 2015 for all currently certified trainers.  Those certified 2015 and later will have five years of grace and then will need to refresh once every five years.
 
The sessions are intended to provide:
1. Recently evolved vocabulary and/or progressions of events of voice and bodywork. 
2. The refreshing experience of reviewing a voice or body training event with peers.
3. Clarity of training procedures or concepts.

Workshops dedicated to sustaining certification will be announced periodically.  The Master Teacher Council will attempt to offer a yearly workshop for this purpose adjacent to the Annual Lessac Institute Conference
