  • If the CMI organization cancels a seminar or lab, the full fee will be refunded.
  • If a student withdraws more than 15 days before the seminar or lab, the full fee, less a $25 administrative fee, will be refunded. The student may elect to have the full fee transferred to another seminar or lab held during the same academic year (September – August).
  • If a student withdraws within 15 days of a seminar or lab, the full fee, less a $25 administrative fee, may be transferred to another seminar or lab held during the same academic year (September – August).
  • If a student misses a seminar or lab without notifying the CMI organization before the event commences, no refunds or credits will be available.

CMI Certificate Program

Level I – Practitioner

Entry level training for practitioners already certified in a bodywork discipline who want to integrate CMI into their practice and have joined the 100-hour Certificate Program.

Completion of this program certifies that you are competent in the use of CMI techniques in your practice and may teach CMI to clients.

To join the Level 1 100-hour Certificate Program you must make a deposit of $300 (a monthly payment plan can be negotiated). Members of the 100-hour Program receive discounted prices for seminars and labs. During your study, the deposit will remain intact and will be applied to the final hours of your course of study. Any outstanding payments due will be subtracted from your deposit. If, after achieving certification, a balance of your deposit remains, it will be refunded or you may apply it to future study.

If for any reason you decide to discontinue the program, you must give 30 days’ written notice. Your deposit will be applied to any outstanding payments due and refunded less an administrative fee of $100.

Level II – Advanced Practitioner 100 – 300 hours

Entry Level Certification is required to advance to Full Certification. An additional 200 hours of study beyond the Entry Level program leads to Full CMI Certification and the right to be called a Certified Core Movement Integration Practitioner.

To join the Level II 300-hour Certificate Program, you must make a deposit of $300 (a monthly payment plan can be negotiated). Members of the 300-hour Program receive discounted prices for Seminars and Labs, but not for Grand Labs or other “Post-Graduate” training. During your study, the deposit will remain intact and will be applied to the final hours of your course of study. Any outstanding payments due will be subtracted from your deposit. If, after achieving certification, a balance of your deposit remains, it will be refunded or you may apply it to future study.

If, for any reason, you decide to discontinue the program, you must give 30 days’ written notice. Your deposit will be applied to any outstanding payments due and refunded less an administrative fee of $100.
