All instruction is based on an integrated holistic model for assessing movement disorder and restoring functional movement.

C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 1 Review Workshop

One of the reasons these Academy workshops are so important for each student’s development is simply because all of our programs are advanced. Because of that, we like to ensure each one of our students not only truly understands the information delivered in each program BUT can apply it properly! In this 2-day workshop, we run through some of the more challenging of assessments from C.H.E.K Practitioner level 1 and we show the students how to deliver the assessment in a way that flows evenly.

We highly recommend you prepare a case study to bring to this review workshop to ensure you get the most out of the 2 days.

Case Study Requirement
Each case study should include results of a full C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 1 assessment and a complete client program based upon that assessment, including periodization.

The academic plan for year three commencing October 1,  2019 will be shared with all year two students on the July 1,  2019.
