Completion of the 2018 Australian Global Certification Training Program (GCTP) provides qualification as an internationally recognised ‘Certified TRE Provider,’ enabling you to teach TRE professionally to individuals and groups. (see below for the Certification Training Summary, pre-requisites & costs)
For trainees with relevant additional qualifications, the certification will also qualify you to provide facilitations and/or use TRE within the scope of and in support of your existing treatment modalities.
For trainees without additional health qualifications, the certification training qualifies you to teach TRE for general health & wellbeing only to populations without any medical or mental health conditions and not as a treatment or therapy for any medical or mental health conditions.
Provisional Professional Practice (PPP): trainees with relevant pre-existing professional qualifications who are a member of a professional association and are able to justify that the teaching of TRE (to individuals only) within the scope of their existing qualification and professional indemnity insurance are able to apply for a Provisional Professional Practice (PPP) certificate once they have reached competency to teach individuals and completed a minimum of 7 supervision hours. The PPP will be valid from the date of issue to a maximum of 12 months after the Module 2 workshop, during which time the trainee must complete the remainder of their training.
2018 Training Intake: there is only one training intake starting at the Module 1 training workshop in June 2018. (exact date TBC) Trainees will need to have completed the pre-requisites to enrollment (see below) before attending the Module 1 workshop in June.

PS – here’s what some trainees have had to say about completing the TRE certification with Richmond Heath:
What I like about working with you (Richmond) is that I feel supported to experiment, try different things and learn. The environment you create is one of let’s try and see, so much is learnt here. You challenge but with support. I also enjoy your flexibility towards there is no fixed way. ie this person this time this worked, next time who knows, stay open, stay present and read. I love this and it makes sense. I enjoy that you are not fixed in a position, you are obviously the authority in this field yet you remain excited to explore. Your being excited by TRE and open to growth, is inspiring for your students. Thanks Richmond. TRE and learning with you has been a life changer. Tree Wiseblood
