Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my discounts?

Discounts are applied automatically, based on your past purchases, so be sure to log in with the same email address you've used for past purchases, BEFORE checking out. (If you log in during check out rather than beforehand, your discounts may not be automatically applied).

Didn't get the discounts you think you should have? Go ahead and check out, then send us proof of purchase for your past training, DVD, technique video, A-T Subscription, or CAMT enrollment and we'll promptly refund you for any discounts you didn't receive.

See the Discount and Cost table above for the automatic discounts you're eligible for.

Are the meetings live or recorded?

All small group meetings will be live & online via Zoom’s easy interface. You will also have lifetime access to all Lecture and Technique video recordings (though small groups are not recorded).

What if I miss a meeting?

All four Lectures and five Technique videos are recordings, so they’re easy to catch up on if can’t make it to the live lecture.

Small Groups are NOT recorded, and ARE required for credit, so plan on attending all of the live-online Small Group meetings. You'll have your choice of Small Group day and time when you sign up, and if there is space available, you can attend at a different time if you need to miss a meeting. Live attendance at a minimum of three (3) Small Group discussions is required for credit, and a maximum of one (1) of those can be made up via a written assignment, if needed.

You can also take the course as a not-for-credit auditor, and come solely to the meetings (and listen to the recordings) you choose.

Does this course earn credit?

Yes! This course is approved for NCBTMB, state, ABMP, AMTA, CAMT I, and CAMT II credit. Need another type of credit? Please inquire.

Will this class satisfy my CE requirements for live course credits or live contact hours?

This live online class is approved by the NCBTMB as a "Live Webinar/Distant Learning" class, and earns an approved Certificate of Achievement. For other types of credit, check with your state, agency or association to confirm.

Do I need to purchase the techniques videos separately?

No! Your normal course fee includes access to all required materials, including the relevant Advanced Myofascial Techniques video set (a $69-$89 value).

Can I get the technique videos on DVD instead of online video?

Yes! Your tuition includes access to online video of all the course's techniques, but if you’d also like these on DVD, course enrollees can get the DVD set for just $5 plus shipping. Contact us for the discount code.

What if I already own the DVDs or online videos?

You’re eligible for special discounts on this course’s tuition! See the pricing table above for your discount code.

Do I also need the book?

Advanced Myofascial Techniques Volume 2 is highly recommended, especially for CAMT (certification) participants; but is not required for the course. You can get the book at a discount after you register.

Do I need to have taken the in-person version of this class before?

No! It is intended both for first-time participants, and for repeaters of the in-person version. And if you have taken the in-person course already, be sure to use the code to save on your tuition.

Do I need to be seeing clients? Will I need a way to practice the techniques?

Not necessarily. You will be learning about the purpose and principles behind the techniques; practice is optional, and alternatives will be given. So, the course is appropriate for both practitioners who are and who are not seeing clients at this time.
