The ART® Recertification Course was created to make it easier for ART® Providers to keep up their certification and skill level without having to take a lot of time out of the office. The course covers contact and touch, diagnosis, and protocols for the full body.
The ART® Recertification Courses will be hosted regionally at the ART® Seminar Center in Colorado Springs. Space is limited to 15 people per instructor. Half price referral recerts cannot be used for these courses.
Only Full Body Certified ART® Providers may take this course.
Active Release Techniques is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Certified Athletic Trainers (BOC AP#P3882). This program is eligible for a maximum of 8 - 12 Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spend in the educational program.
A strong understanding of human anatomy and physiology is vital when learning and practicing ART®. It is strongly recommended that providers take time prior to the courses to study their materials and watch the DVD(s) in order to be prepared for the course itself. Course will occur over 1 and a half days, with testing built into your time in class. Course is over 80% hands on, which each protocol presented and practiced.
In order to participate in an Active Release Techniques® Soft-Tissue Management training course, you must be a licensed health care professional with soft-tissue malpractice insurance. In other words, you must be licensed/certified to perform soft tissue treatment on patients/clients.
Some areas of certifications include chiropractors, medical and osteopathic doctors, physical and occupational therapists and assistants, physiotherapists, massage therapists, certified athletic trainers, and students studying towards any of these certifications with proof of enrollment. Please call 888-396-2727 if you have a question in regards to certifications not listed.
To be eligible for the student rate for our courses, we do require proof of enrollment.
Only students who are pursuing their first degree in a healthcare field in which they can become licensed to treat soft-tissue conditions/injuries may receive the student discount. This discount will apply for any courses that occur up to six months after graduation or certification date. Students must attend these courses within that timeframe. If a venue is changed to a date outside of that timeframe, we will ask for the difference in cost.
Courses are for practitioners who treat or manage soft-tissue injuries and conditions. Each participant should have an advanced understanding of anatomy.
