PROFESSIONAL PRACTITIONER COURSES OF STUDY

 

Requirements for Entering Practitioner Courses of Study

The student enrolls in a Certificated Course at a member spiritual community and takes the required courses as listed below. The Foundations course must be completed before taking other courses and the courses may not be taken concurrently.

During the period from November 2007 to September 2009, your community can choose to offer curriculum from any of our certificated courses for credit toward practitioner study.

After September 2009, the new course curriculum will go into effect.  It is expected that anyone who is a beginning student and enrolls at the Foundational level in the fall of 2009 will be taking a minimum of two full years of study before entering practitioner study.  Please note that in the fall of 2009, new requirements will be The Essential Ernest Holmes and two additional courses.

In the fall of 2009 and 2010, we will be accepting the same requirement of course preparation that has been in effect for the last 10 years.  You may choose to substitute the new curriculum for the older courses or to offer additional courses at your community.  All the courses on this list are certificated for credit.  Students entering Practitioner Studies in 2011 will take their courses from the following list:
