Certification Requirements

I understand that I will receive certification and continuing education credits for this course ONLY if I have satisfactorily performed on both the theoretical test (minimum 80% score) and the hands-on evaluations (satisfactory in accuracy, pressure, sensitivity, speed, rhythm, positioning, draping, client interaction, and body mechanics). Although most students complete the program within the four workshop days, I understand that if my in-class test and evaluation are not both satisfactory, I will be required to do further study, practice, and evaluation in order to be certified and get CEU documentation.
