Description:   Upcoming training opportunity for the Tai Chi for Arthritis (TCA) and Falls Prevention leader certification.  Anyone also looking to re-certify, this is a great opportunity for them as well.

Through our partnership with the NC Center for Healthy Aging at UNC-Asheville, we are opening our next TCA leader certification training to the statewide network.  This is a 2-day, 16 hr. training and will result in a Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention leader certification through the Tai Chi for Health Institute.  TCA is an excellent program for decreasing the risk of falls, reducing pain due to Arthritis and typically is very popular with participants.

The training will be held on Oct. 17th & 18th at the Western Piedmont Council of Governments in Hickory, NC.  If interested, please use the following link to register:  Instructor Training Application Form

As an effort to help build capacity for the program throughout the state, we are offering the training at $125.  And if the registration fee is a barrier, then we will be offering scholarship options.  I’m still working on the scholarship form, but email me and I make sure we get you taken care of.

Additional information about the training is attached as well as the instructor expectations for being a program leader.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I look forward to working with all of you soon!

Dates:   October 17 and 18, 2018
