How to become an ATTN Community Level Course Facilitator

ATTN welcomes those who are a Recognized Practician to indicate by letter or email, to the Education Chair, their interest in becoming an ATTN Facilitator of Therapeutic Touch® Community Level Courses. (Exceptions for individuals will be considered). The process for acceptance as a Facilitator is: to send a letter of intent to the Education Chair; and, to submit a day plan for any of the Community Level Course(s) you intend to facilitate.
