How do you become a Certified TAT® Practitioner?

The change to making The Basics 1 and ll available as recordings was to allow for our Students to be able to complete the process based on your schedule and pace. As you watch the recordings write down your questions for each session. 

There will be two live monthly Question & Answer webinars with Tapas Fleming to address your questions about the process. You will receive up to 6 months of invitations to the live webinars and they will only be available to members of the Student Practitioners membership.

You will have access to the webinar recordings, even if you can't be present. If you are planning on continuing your education by becoming a Certified TAT Professional you will need to attend at least 3 live webinars

When you have completed these 3 requirements, you will be a Certified TAT Practitioner and can then move on to becoming a Certified TAT Professional.

If you are interested in using TAT® on a professional level in your practice, leading groups, and to work with health conditions, trauma, allergies, children, and animals, becoming a Certified TAT Professional will be required.
