Our full certification course consists of 32 hours of lecture and 32 hours of in person lab time. Lecture is broken into 16 2-hour lectures. Modules 1-4 are the introductory material which discusses history of Dr Needling, precautions and contraindications, and muscles that are safely needled after initial exposure to Dry Needling. Modules 5-16 constitute the advanced components of the course and are grouped by body part.
The first 4 lectures will comprise the introductory material. At that point there will be a 1 day live in-person lab session where you will perform the introductory dry needling techniques. Upon successful completion of that lab experience you will be able to move on to the rest of the content. Each participant will be required to document 100 dry needling sessions prior to attending the remainder of the live in-person lab sessions.
There will be 12 additional 2-hour live interactive virtual lectures before you can attend the 3 day live in-person lab sessions where you will perform the advanced dry needling techniques.
There will be assignments required after each of the live virtual lectures and there will be lab practical exams prior to completion of each of the live in-person labs.
After successful completion of the required assignments and successful completion of the in-person dry needling labs and lab practicals, the participant will be awarded the certification in Dry Needling (CHDN).
