Our three years teacher’s training course


As the foundation of any hands-on work, every trainee will be encouraged to work on themselves and to pay a great deal of attention to the development of their use. This way of learning will help the trainees to continue developing their experience and understanding of the Technique throughout their professional career.

We also believe that practical procedures should be the fundamental aspect of any alexander training course, as they give the trainees the necessary experience for developing their teaching skills and ‘teaching hands’.

Upon completion of your training, you will have access to the OrTra TC equivalence procedure, which will allow you to obtain the complementary therapy branch certificate. Following this, and after at least two years of supervised practical work experience, you can enrol for the Federal Diploma for Complementary Therapists.

This right remains, irrespective of the result of the examination. You will find all the necessary information on the conditions and application procedure at www.sbfi.admin.ch/contributions.
