Each step in this process carries a specific set of qualifications, teaching roles, skills, and attributes appropriate to that level.

Academy Accessibility and Exceptions

The Aquarian Trainer Academy’s Professional Development Committee continually evaluates how to ensure that the Academy is accessible globally to those who wish to become trainers. With this intention, additional pathways are being explored for how to qualify both as Level One and as Level Two Trainers.
One example of this is for geographic regions where there is not much access to Level Two Teacher Trainings. We now have a policy regarding the number of completed Level Two modules required to enter the academy in those regions.
In the past when allowances were made for unique circumstances, it was often not clear to some members of the Academy, or potential members of the Academy, that requests for consideration of a special circumstance could be made.
If at any time you or a member of your team feels that a unique consideration is needed please contact Amrit Singh Khalsa

Associate Trainer Candidate

The Associate Trainer maintains his or her mentoring relationship with their Lead Trainer but is eligible to teach up to 25% of a program without direct supervision. There is no established Associate training period.
