Professional Training and Certification Options

The Qigong Sensory Training Institute offers professional development in the delivery of QST. Trainer certification starts with becoming a QST Certified Trainer. From there, trainers can add endorsements for QST for Down Syndrome or/and the QST Online Parent Trainer. If a QST Certified Trainer wants to teach other professionals they would need to complete the QST Master Trainer certification.
