Approved Training Courses

Approved Training Course

One of the most effective and comprehensive ways to prepare for Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (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 effectives and user friendly in that they culminate with an opportunity to complete the PATH Intl. certification as part of the program. While many PATH Intl. centers offer instructor training courses, only those listed below as Approved Training Courses offer the certification as part of the experience.

PATH Intl. ATCs have been evaluated by PATH Intl. for content and relevance. Their curriculum is extensive and highly recommended for anyone intending to make equine assisted activities and therapies an important part of his/her life. The courses provide a thorough foundation for those with little previous experience in the field of therapeutic riding.

In some cases, training courses are offered through colleges or universities and may take several months or even years to complete. Others are offered at PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Centers and may last a few weeks to several months. Instructors interested in an Approved Training Course may contact the Approved Training Course directly to obtain information on course fees, schedules and entrance requirements.
