Instructor Training & Advancement

Welcome to Healing Beyond Borders Healing Touch Instructor Training and Advancement. We are pleased that you have made the commitment to pursue your training as a Healing Beyond Borders Healing Touch Instructor.  We understand the time and energy that goes into completing this training and recognize all of the work you have done to prepare for this process.

To become a Certified Healing Touch Instructor (CHTI), in addition to completion of the entire five courses of study of the HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program and already being a current Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP), there are other course requirements. Each Certified Healing Touch Practitioner assists with numerous classes before teaching under supervision from an experienced Certified Healing Touch Instructor.  Applicants then submit an Application packet as a Certified HBB Instructor to the Healing Beyond Borders Certification Board for final review and determination for Certified Healing Touch Instructor (CHTP/I) designation.

You are a valued member of the Healing Beyond Borders community and your teaching will assist many students in their studies to become healers for years to come.

Just as the HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program works best in the context of community, the Instructor Training and Advancement will have increased benefits to you when you consult with your Trainer, Supervisor, Co-Instructors and mentors, ask questions, connect to your personal guidance, and attend to your own self care.

Each criteria is meant to highlight specific knowledge, skills, or judgment related to the development of professional, safe, and ethical Instructor practice. You will also be expected to adhere to the Healing Beyond Borders Instructor Guidelines.

Our intention is that you are successful in this endeavor, and have the support you need to bring your desire to teach others come to fruition.
