Students may now attend live preceptorships from any location that has high speed internet access.

If you've ever thought about getting Certified by the Academy but were concerned about the time and costs involved in personally attending Preceptorships in Los Angeles, you'll be glad to know that you may be able to attend the two required 4-day live Preceptorships entirely online.

International students, those with disabilities or ongoing family or work responsibilities can now actively participate online with others who are able to attend the Los Angeles workshops in person. For more information and the requirements for attending preceptorships online, click here.

All Certification course and workshop materials are now available for online viewing or as downloadable files, thus saving tuition costs, shipping costs and time. Lectures and demonstrations are downloadable as mp3 (audio) and mp4 (video) files, and course workbooks and reading materials are downloadable as pdf files.

Students must have sufficient technical knowledge or assistance to download, print, and/or transfer these files to appropriate media (computers, tablets, smart phones, TVs) for their review. Students who are unable to do this, or those who prefer to have the Academy send them printed workbooks and pre-recorded CDs and DVDs may pay an additional fee to receive hard copies of the workbooks, DVDs, and CDs.

If you'd like to become recognized as an expert in using guided imagery and enjoy all the other benefits of Academy Certification, consider enhancing your guided imagery skills by joining our 1200+ Certified IGI Guidessm who are internationally recognized as the best experts in this field.
