*Please note that this course is being run for those whom have (but not exclusively) expressed interest in continuing directly into the Level 2 training beginning in 2022 (one week after this course finishes).
So while this training does not cover the same 150 hour training as the new upgraded Level 1 course running in April 2021, most participants doing this course are looking to enter Level 2 training immediately after Level 1 ends.
By doing so these students can take their newly learned skills directly into a more advanced 10 month training program whereby all skills in Level 1 are further developed into more advance practices, giving the students undertaking this training adequate time to practice, craft and hone their skills over 2022, and for many, the opportunity to become a Level 1 instructor before Christmas 2021 and a level 2 Instructor before Christmas 2022.
So, for people considering this training as an entry directly into Level 2 - rest assured that everyone in Level 2 at this time has also only done the same Level 1 course that you will be doing here. Moving directly into Level 2 after this course will feel like you are doing one long course with Level 2 simply being an expansion on what you have learnt in level 1 with a heap more practices and knowledge. So don't be put off!!
Check out Level 2 here - and if necessary feel free to email or call Nicholas and ask any questions you have - I'm happy to chat anytime!
