Can't commit to two weekends in a row? No problem! We have many flexible options that will allow you to take the first part of the series and schedule the second part of the series at a later date. You can pay for both upfront or we can divide payments to suite your needs!
Practice Act Requirements
It is the student's responsibility to know their practice act requirements. For instance, Mississippi previously required a therapist to practice for three years prior to being credentialed to perform dry needling. If you are unsure if your state has a minimum years of practice requirement, please verify with your board or practice act prior to registration.
