CEU CLASSES ARE SCHEDULED ON-DEMAND/BY REQUEST.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:


1. Select the class you'd like to take from the list below. There are 13 classes from which to choose. Any class is only $75.00 per student. Classes are taught at my office in Bedford. 

2. Contact me with the date you would like to take the class with at least four weeks notice. Less notice is required if you have at least 3 other therapists who are committed to take the class with you on that day and are willing to pay in advance.

3. Once you and I have agreed on a future date/class and payment is made for the class, I will commit to teach the class regardless of the number of people who sign up to attend. You will need to pay in advance for the class in order for me to commit to it and promote it. 

4. I will then promote the class to my email list of over 700 therapists who have attended my classes in the past.

5. Please plan ahead and don't wait until the last minute. I will be teaching no more than 2 classes per month. Lack of planning on your part doesn't create an emergency on my part. However, I will be happy for you to register for any of the classes that have already been scheduled.

6. Classes are normally scheduled from 10:00am to 4:00pm on the day you have selected, with a short lunch break. However, times may be adjusted by your request. Each class is 6 CEUs and each student will receive a transcipt at the end of the day documenting his/her completion of the class.

7. Special pricing and scheduling is available for spas and massage therapy establishments who wish to schedule a class for at least 4 members of their staff or more. Please call me for pricing information. I will not require as much advance notice for these classes; the only requirement is that I am available on the date requested. The classes may be held at my office or on-site, provided there is enough space available. Classes scheduled on-site will be limited to the staff of the business scheduling the class. However, if the class is held at my office, I reserve the right to allow additional students to register for the class with a maximum of 8 students. Please call for more information.
