CranioSacral Therapy Apprentice Program
Thank you for your interest
in The Upledger Institute's CranioSacral Therapy 1 Instructor Apprentice
This program is designed for
you to work with several Certified Upledger Institute (UI) Instructors and
Assistants. This allows you to observe several teaching styles with consistent
course content. All UI CranioSacral Therapy workshops are conducted by licensed
healthcare professionals certified through an extensive apprenticeship program.
This rigorous program includes in-field training in which the apprentice
presents every lecture included in each applicable course, with evaluations and
commentaries provided by course participants as well as top UI administrators.
Each certified instructor is required to attend regularly scheduled teacher meetings, and
take at least 32 continuing-education units from the Institute every four years.
Instructor Certification is
awarded at the sole discretion of UI upon satisfactory completion of all three
steps outlined above. UI must feel confident that the intentions of the
Apprentice are consistent with those of UI and that proficiency has been
demonstrated with respect to course content knowledge, clarity and accuracy of
information presented and presentation style and ability.

requires substantial time, effort and investment on your part. The apprentice
program is designed to be a learning and development experience similar to a

the requirements necessary for certification. As part of that responsibility, UI
trusts that the Apprentice will take the initiative to coordinate all aspects of
their apprenticeship with the appropriate UI personnel in a timely and organized
