Special Instructions for taking your Beginning I module by DVD
We STRONGLY encourage you to take all training modules in person. Half of every 4 day module consists of practicing what you are learning in small groups. When you take a module by DVD you are still getting high-quality instruction presented by a faculty member, but you miss the opportunity to practice what you are learning.
We realize that there may be circumstances where it is not possible to take a training in person. We allow you to take one module in your Beginning year, and one Module in your Intermediate year by DVD. Consecutive modules MAY NOT be taken by DVD – in other words, you may not take Beginning III and Intermediate I by DVD. Advanced year trainings are not available to be taken by DVD.
If you take Beginning I by DVD, you must also complete a review session with an Approved Review Session provider BEFORE you can take Beginning II.
If you cannot take your Beginning I training in person, please complete the electronic application and indicate where you anticipate taking the Beginning II module.
