We recommend facilities consider CFS, FM I, and PNF I as the first courses to host. These courses make up the foundation of the FMT approach, and are building blocks for many of our other courses. We do offer additional courses that do not have pre-requisites that could be appropriate for new hosting facilities, but if you are not sure where to start you won’t go wrong with CFS, FM I, or PNF I.
Benefits for hosting “Open” courses attended by your therapists and therapists in the community are based on total paid participants attending the course. “In-House” courses, attended by your internal therapists only are offered at a 20% discount, and require a minimum of 18 attendees.
In general, we ask hosting facilities to accommodate at least 30 participants, with two people at one treatment table. In larger metro areas accommodations for 40 participants may be required. In smaller metro areas accommodations for as low as 18 participants may be approved.
To be considered for hosting a course complete this Intent to Host form and return it via the directions on the form. We generally ask facilities for their hosting preferences and black-out dates in the spring for hosting the following year. The form gives us the information we need to include your facility in the scheduling process. It is much easier to give you the courses and time-frames you want if we have your information when we start the schedule. Late additions to the schedule are possible, but must be balanced with other offerings in the region and instructor availability.
For more information, or to discuss a specific hosting plans for your facility, please call the IPA office.
