|Renewal and Continuing Education Policy|
IAYT Certification Continuing Education Submission
Renewal of IAYT Certification is required every 3 years. To be eligible to renew you must:
Maintain your IAYT membership annually
Continuing education hours can be acquired through a variety of sources, including:
Attendance/Participation directly with IAYT:
Completion of an IAYT Approved Professional Development (APD) Course:
IAYT Approved Professional Development (APD) courses for continuing education are listed here. Each of these has been pre-screened and meets the competency requirements for renewal of C-IAYT certification. These courses also have the advantage of easy submission of CE credits. Once an APD course is completed, you can return to the course listing and click on a link there to post the CE credit to your profile.
Attendance/Participation outside of IAYT: (The following are the types of training, participation, and activities that may be submitted by using the form below for individual approval by IAYT. Currently, CE submission is not restricted to APD courses)
Additional Information About Current Requirements and Future Plans
CE credits reset when your C-IAYT renewal is updated on the third year anniversary of your last renewal or initial certification date. Initial requirements for Continuing Educations requirements were set when the IAYT Certification process began in May 2016. These allow broad acceptance of credits as long as they are aligned to the Educational Standards for the Training of Yoga Therapists.
The continuing education requirements for subsequent renewals of certification will be revised as the Approved Professional Development (APD) course list grows and we further develop our continuing education strategy. Changes to CE requirements will be communicated in advance of each renewal cycle for which they apply.
