Instructor Certification


TAI CHI AND QI GONG CANADA

A good tai chi or qi gong instructor can make a world of difference in your learning experience. Good teachers can help you understand, enjoy and appreciate the art in a way that is meaningful to you. Our goal is to groom and train good, qualified instructors, so they can help others enjoy and learn the beautiful art of tai chi and qi gong.

TAI CHI & QI GONG CANADA

Tai Chi & Qi Gong Canada has been established to train and certify quality Tai Chi and Qi Gong instructors. We have designed a graduated instructor certification program where you can progressively meet the requirements at each level, thereby achieving the skills and experience over a period of time. To get started, attend the free INFO SESSION held once a year.

INFO SESSION

This is a 1 hour session to learn about the Graduated Instructor Certification Program and the prerequisites for joining the program. The session is FREE and open to everyone.

Next session is scheduled for December 2023. If you would like to inquire about the program before that, please send us an email.
