Become Certified in Interactive Guided Imagerysm Through Home Study Courses and Online Webinars
Students throughout the world may now take classes via Distance Learning and can attend the two Preceptorships via online video conferencing.

Thanks to the newest video conferencing technology, students may attend one or both of the two required 4-day live Preceptorships online as live webinars. International students, those with disabilities or ongoing family or work responsibilities can now actively participate online with others attending these workshops in Los Angeles. For more information and the requirements for attending Preceptorships online, click here.

All Certification course and workbook materials are now delivered online as Distance Learning pdf files. Lectures and demonstrations are delivered as mp3 (audio) and mp4 (video) files. You must have sufficient technical knowledge or assistance to download, print, and/or transfer these files to appropriate media (computers, tablets, smart phones, TVs) for your review.
