Program Overview and Prerequisites
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Certified PSYCH-K® Instructor. Following is an overview of our vision for the program and its Instructors. After reviewing the requirements, please contact us at email@example.com for more details before submitting the required material. Certification training dates are to be announced.
The overall goal for the Instructor program is to have as few Instructors as possible, who are highly qualified, to teach as many individuals as possible, worldwide. This goal is achieved by Instructors who see this as a central career, rather than a hobby, or just an activity to add to your “tool box” for change. The expectation is that you will have the ability and desire to teach at least 200+ workshop participants a year. Achieving this goal requires sufficient marketing skills to sustain this level of success. Prior marketing experience is an important component for all Certified PSYCH-K Instructors. It is our goal to maintain an active relationship with all the Instructors, hence the need to restrict the number of Instructors. Further, it is equally important that the quality of the relationships among all Instructors is one of mutual respect, trust, and collaboration, as well as a shared passion and commitment to make a positive difference in the world. The ability to collaborate and cooperate with others is another key indicator of a successful Instructor candidate. These personality traits and interpersonal skills are necessary to be a successful Certified Instructor. Operating as a community, while maintaining our unique individuality, is our goal. We refer to this operational philosophy as Sacred Reciprocity.

PSYCH-K Basic Workshop Instructor Training
Completion of the Certification Training will entitle Instructors to teach the two-day, or optional three-day PSYCH-K Basic Workshops. Instructors will have the legal right to advertise their status as Certified PSYCH-K Instructors of the workshops. They will also have the legal right, as per the License Agreement (contact the PSYCH-K Centre for more information about the Instructor’s Licensing Agreement), to use the PSYCH-K® trade names and logos in advertising and marketing to promote the workshops and themselves. Certified Instructors are free to teach the workshops anywhere in the world. There are no “territories,” like most sales organizations, rather we see ourselves as a collaborative educational organization.
Prerequisites for the Basic Workshop Instructor Training
All Prospective Candidates will have:
- Successfully completed the Basic, PSYCH-K Pro, and Advanced PSYCH-K workshops.
- Secured at least (2) recommendation(s) from your Basic, Advanced, and/or PSYCH-K Pro Instructor(s).
- Appropriate marketing resources and group presentation skills, to be determined by the Certifying Agent.
- Sponsored at least (2) PSYCH-K Basic Workshops to be taught by an existing Certified PSYCH-K Instructor. Each workshop must have at least (12) participants who attend as a direct result of the sponsor’s marketing resources. Additional participants may come from other sources.
- Provided to the Certifying Agent — at least (90) days prior to the training — a written plan for marketing PSYCH-K. A favorable review of the marketing plan is a prerequisite to attending the training.
- Provided to the Certifying Agent — at least (90) days prior to the training — a video in which the prospective Instructor Candidate facilitates the New Direction and Resolution Balances, as well as the VAK to the Future goal setting process. Preferentially, the prospective Instructor Candidate should facilitate with someone who is not familiar with PSYCH-K Balances. The point of the video is to demonstrate a working knowledge of the procedures you will be learning to teach. A favorable review of the video by the Certifying Agent is a prerequisite to attending the training.
- Provided to the Certifying Agent — at least (90) days prior to the training — three letters of professional reference.
Duration and Location of Certification Training
The Instructor Certification training is a six-day event. Trainings are usually held in Crestone, Colorado. Travel, lodging and meals are not included in the training fee. Certification Candidates must demonstrate suitable skills, in the estimation of the Certifying Agent, to be awarded Certification status. Should the Candidate not demonstrate suitable skills, half the training fee will be returned to the Candidate. The other half of the fee is non-refundable. However, by mutual consent, the Candidate may return at a later date, pay the standard Certification training fee, and take the Certification training again.
Tuition for Training and Certification
The six-day Certification Training is $5,000, which must be paid in full one week prior to Certification training. Upon successful completion of the Certification Training Program the PSYCH-K Basic Instructor will receive:
- Certificate suitable for framing.
