You will receive the Trail Guide to the Body book at course level 1 and this book will be used in the 3 levels.

At each course, you will receive a manual and a trigger point poster.

Total number of hours per course level:

Level 1 course: 42 hours - 24 theory and 18 hands-on clinical instruction.

Level 2 course: 42 hours - 18 theory and 24 hands-on clinical instruction.

Level 3 course: 36 hours  - 18 theory and 18 hands-on clinical instruction.

In total 120 hours (60 theory and 60 hands-on clinical instruction) leading to a full and complete dry needling certificate.

Study hours and materials:

You will receive course level specific videos (7 hourse per course), articles (2 hours) and anatomy/referred pain links (1 hour) beforehand. A total of 10 hours for each course.


Participants must pass both a theoretical and practical exam per course level and demonstrate safety and competency in order to receive a certificate of completion. If you do not pass either test, you will be required to re-take and re-test all materials. A final theoretical and practical exam is part of the last review day, one month after course level 3, and passing these leads to a full and complete dry needling certificate.


Course attendees should come prepared to participate as both a therapist and ‘patient’. All participants are expected to participate in the hands-on parts of the courses. Female participants who are pregnant, or are trying to become pregnant, should consider registering for another course (post-partum) because pregnancy is contra-indicated for dry needling. 


If you need to cancel your course enrollment, please contact as soon as possible. If you cancel up until 4 weeks before the course, there will be a 20% administrative fee. If you cancel within 4 weeks of the course date, we are not able to provide a refund of any kind. For an administrative fee, however, we will allow you to transfer your registration to another course that starts within 6 months of the original course date for which you registered. One such transfer is allowed at this rate; all others result in a 50% fee.
