An overview of  the Instructor training requirements in Australia:

Our curriculum offers five levels of courses built on the Educational Kinesiology (Edu-K) learning model.

Level 1 courses are open to all, and introduce the basics of the Brain Gym® program. We recommend starting with our signature course, Brain Gym® 101.

Level 2 courses build on and have Brain Gym® 101 as the pre-requisite. Optimal Brain Organization (OBO) is a required (core) course in the licensure process at this level.

Level 3 courses have varied pre-requisites and are geared towards one-on-one consulting work. Edu-K In Depth: Seven Dimensions of Intelligence is the required (core) course at this level.

Level 4 courses are for our professional instructors. After attending the Practicum course, the final course in the licensure process, one can apply for a valid licence with Brain Gym® Australia. These training courses require a valid licence.

Level 5 contains the advanced teacher training courses and requires a valid licence. Check the prerequisites carefully.

Australia follows the Core Curriculum, which is the minimum training set by the International Faculty of Brain Gym® International.
