Maintaining certification

As of 2014, new guidelines have been implemented for maintaining certification.




The requirements for maintaining certification are aiming for a balance between keeping certified practitioners active within the organisation, willing to still learn, yet not dissuading members from gaining their certification. 




The new requirements as of 2014 will be; 




Basic –                  Nothing required


Advanced –        Must table educate once in every three years


Craniopaths –    Must contribution in some capacity every two years for Craniopaths (at the discretion of the Board). 




Each certified member must adhere to the above to maintain their certification.
