CHI Health Institute Annual Renewal

CHI Annual Certification


Barbara Wolff

Certification Process

If you are interested in becoming a Certified Instructor in one or more of the Ni Family movements, just follow these 5 steps under the guidance of a Senior Instructor:

1. Learn the form. Take the class from a Certified Teacher (In-Person or Online.)  Notify your teacher that you are interested in becoming a Certified Teacher and they will connect you to a Senior Instructor or search for one in the CHI Directory. This person will mentor  you through the Certification process.

2. Complete the "Introduction to Spiritual Self-Development Course, Part I, The Integral Way of Life.”  (you only have to take Part I)   This course requirement is waived for Yo San University students who have completed and passed Fundamentals of Taoism course—you must submit official transcript showing completion of said course.

3. Take a Teacher Training Intensive.  Upon successful completion of your Teacher Intensive, the Senior Instructor will send a “pass” confirmation to College of Tao and your Senior Instructor will schedule your Practical Exam. Alternatively, the Senior Instructor may require you, instead of a teacher training intensive to take and assist a course, training you through the teaching assistance process.  

4.  Pass the Practical Exam.  The Senior Instructor will ask you to demonstrate your knowledge and accuracy of the form that you are seeking to be certified in one on one in person or Online, if applicable. Upon successfully passing the practical exam, as evidenced by an email recommendation sent by Senior Instructor to the Registrar of College of Tao, proceed to the next step. 

5. Complete the Application and Pay all the required Fees. See Fee Schedule below.
