What does AmSAT Certified Mean?
The requirements for AmSAT teacher certification include the completion of 1,600 hours of training over a minimum of three years at an AmSAT-approved Teacher Training Course. Teachers spend this period learning how to observe ingrained, mostly unconscious patterning and develop a hands-on approach to help the student release unwanted, habitual tension.
AmSAT is the largest professional organization for teachers of the Alexander Technique in the US. It establishes and maintains the nation’s highest standards for teacher training, certification, and membership.
