Approved Training Courses (ATCs)
One of the most effective and comprehensive ways to prepare for PATH Intl. instructor certification is to attend a course at a PATH Intl. center offering an Approved Training Course (ATC). These carefully screened training sites have developed an intensive education curriculum that educates participants and offer classroom learning and hands-on experience with horses and riders. Offered for both the Registered and Advanced Certification, the courses are particularly effective and user friendly in that they culminate with an opportunity to complete the PATH Intl. certification as part of the program.
