Core Requirements and Electives

Four levels are part of this program: Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. Each level is outlined in this brochure. This includes required seminars (those you must do to qualify for certification) and the elective seminars (those that you are free to choose from in order to make up the 10 seminars required for certification for each level). Take careful note of which subjects are required and which you may choose. Level 4 does not include electives, only core requirements.
