Recertification Requirements

To retain your status in just about every field these days it is necessary to update in the latest thinking and maintain an active interest in your field.  We encourage you to extend your skills and knowledge by taking post-qualifying enrichment courses from Faculty and visiting Foundation trainers when these are offered, if at all possible.

To maintain Consultant and Instructor standing, and to be endorsed by the Edu-K Network should you wish to join The NZ Charter of Health Practitioners Inc., you need to be a current member of the Edu-K Network of NZ Inc.

Four years after doing the Practicum the first time, you need to repeat it. Faculty will from time to time present Instructor/Consultant updates, especially when new teaching manuals/concepts need to be explained. This keeps you up to date with how Brain Gym® is being presented and allows useful cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques between experienced and new Brain Gym people.

Consultants/Instructors need to stay in touch by doing a total of 28 hours of further training/course work/AGM attendance every two years. 

This may include:

  • attending a Gathering (maximum of 20 hours)
  • attending a Gathering (maximum of 20 hours)
  • Touch for Health III or IV, or first repeats of any TFH class
  • additional Edu-K or  enrichment courses (first time or repeat)
  • attending a designated update, run by Faculty.
  • attending other kinesiology courses (first time onlysubmit details)
  • other training you consider relevant to Edu-K (submit details)
  • Edu-K research projects or publishing(submit detailstalks and presentations given (submit details)
  • ongoing application of BG in your work (submit details)
  • teaching BG, VC,OBO classes
  • updating First Aid training

Evidence (copies of certificates  or explanations) of these is to be submitted in Jan/Feb each year to the Network Qualifications Registrar (currently Barbara) in order for you to be issued with the annual date sticker for your Consulting Certificate.  Some flexibility and leeway is necessary here as people’s lives vary over time, but we want the people listed as consultants and instructors to be active Edu-K people who are available to teach Brain Gym and/or take clients. There can only be In Depth and Practicum classes if there are students coming through your BG classes.
