Distance Learning & Certification Program Guideline:

Instructors can be certified from anywhere in the world through Tai Chi Healthways' convenient Distance Learning certification program. You don't need to make a trip if you can provide enough evidence, and your video shows your skill well enough for the certificate level you are applying for. If you have previous Tai Chi experience and can perform any short or long routine/form, you are eligible for Associate Tai Chi Instructor or above. Your prior Tai Chi training can come from any school. Tai Chi Healthways certification is based on your knowledge of the Tai Chi Classics and is not limited to a particular style. We teach you not only the practical, day-to-day skills necessary to excel as a Tai Chi instructor, but gives you the theoretical knowledge you need to succeed as well.

The first step is to register as a long-distance instructor trainee. We will send you the instructor’s training materials package, which includes:

(1) The Tai Chi Fundamentals for Beginners DVD (or a dvd you prefer) through regular mail.
(2) Leadership Manual. We put a 30-hour self-study materials through internet file, so you can study and train at your home. We keep this Leadership Manual as an e-book continually updated with the most useful information.
(3) The Tai Chi Theory Exam for Tai Chi Instructor Certification.
(4) Evaluation: When you are ready, return your exam answers to us and send us a videotape, video file, or DVD of yourself doing Tai Chi movements. You can send the answer of exam and video through internet. www.YouTube.com and some other website provide free video sharing hosting. You can just upload your video and send us the links. We will review and evaluate it and will be happy to issue you the teaching certificate. If your postures, movements or routines need more works, we will provide corrections and suggestions for you to improve. No monthly or annual dues to Tai Chi Healthways. Life long valid after you become a certified instructor, but we do hope you can come to workshop once every two years to update your skills.

The total cost for this Distance Learning Certification program (including materials package, exam, evaluation, and certificate) will be $275.

The package also includes permanent listing of your name and contact info on the Tai Chi Healthways Certified Instructors listing, and a 20% discount on all Tai Chi Healthways workshops and all private lessons with Master Tsao.

The registration fee can be paid through PayPal, or send a check payable to: Master Jesse Tsao, 5051 Sterling Grove Lane, San Diego, CA 92130.

To upgrade your certification to the next level, the processing fee is $150. This includes one free DVD of your choice, another evaluation and the upgraded certificate.

Potential instructors will be evaluated by our Certification Committee Members based upon ability to meet the following criteria:

(1) Pass the Tai Chi theory exam with 75% accurate (25 multiple choice questions).
(2) Complete an essay: write a handout to demonstrate your ability to research Tai Chi philosophy and its health benefits. This handout could be used later when you teach your own class or for presentations.
(3) Perform forms/routines postures and name moves accurately. Associate Instructor (Community Level) need 300 class-hour, 30 Leadership/workshop training hours + one tai chi routine; Standard Instructor (City Level) need 500 class-hour, 50 Leadership/workshop training hours + at least one traditional tai chi long form routine, tai chi weapon, and tai chi push hands; Senior Instructor (State-wide/regional Level) need 700 class-hour, 100 Leadership/workshop training hours + two traditional tai chi long form routines, tai chi weapons, tai chi push hands, and self-defense application; Executive Instructor (National Level) need 1000 class-hour, 150 Leadership/workshop training hours + three traditional tai chi long form routines, tai chi weapons, tai chi push hands, and self-defense and self-healing application. (Note: For people with tai chi experience before, you do not need to start from the entry-level. The committee will evaluate you to higher certificate level based on your demo of what you can do. For beginners, each certificate level requires progressive development and refinement of skills as determined by the Committee.)

Special Offer: There is a large and growing demand for qualified Tai Chi instructors. To accommodate this need, we are offering a special Entry-level Instructor Certificate now! Personal trainers and group fitness instructors are especially welcome. The Entry-level Instructor Certificate will qualify you to teach Tai Chi’s basic skills and lead exercises safely and effectively. Not only is this program an excellent way to expand your repertoire of wellness and fitness knowledge, but it will also increase your success and value. Instructor candidates living outside of the San Diego area can simply use the Tai Chi Fundamentals for Beginners DVD, or the Esay Tai Chi For Health DVD for at-home self-study, with no workshops to attend and no expensive travel. Leadership training materials will be e-mailed to you for self-study. You can email us the tai chi theory exam and your video clip for evaluation.
