Alexander Technique Teacher Training
    A Comprehensive Guide

Finding a Teacher Training Course

There are several thousand Alexander teachers worldwide. Most of them have completed a three-year full time training course and are certified teaching members of one or more Alexander Technique professional societies. Typically, these societies require successful completion of a 3 year full-time study program at an accredited teacher training course - 1500-1600 hours of instruction.

A number of teachers have trained more informally on an apprenticeship basis. Some professional societies have a waiver process allowing these teachers to become certified based on a peer-review process or, in certain cases, requiring attendance at an approved training course and approval by the Director. Some of these informally-trained teachers have elected not to be certified by a professional society. There is no legal requirement for such certification.

The links below will take you to the websites of teacher training courses, arranged by location. Below these links, you will find links to Alexander Technique professional societies that certify training courses. There you can find information about their certification requirements and information about training courses that do not yet have their own websites.

Please remember that these are links, not recommendation and that not all the training courses listed below qualify graduates for membership in one of the major Alexander Technique professional societies.
