Important! Instructor Recertification Information
Are you a Certified Instructor that is NOT planning to attend the 2016 TapRooT® Summit because you don’t need to be recertified until 2017? Please keep reading for important information regarding 2017.
Did you know that the TapRooT® Summit is held every 14-16 months? If you look back at the past few Summits, they have been in April 2014, June 2015 and now August 2016. There is a strategic rotating schedule that TapRooT® uses to choose the best time for the Summit.
Due to this rotation schedule, once in a while there is a gap year. A year with no Summit. This detail requires some extra planning on our Certified Instructor’s part since each instructor is required to go through recertification every two years.
What does this rotating schedule mean for 2017? It means that 2017 will be our next gap year. To clarify, there will NOT be a TapRooT® Summit in 2017. We are aware that some of our instructors will be due for recertification in 2017 making this a potential hiccup in their future plans.
Those of you who attended our 2015 Summit might remember Mark announcing the upcoming changes here at TapRooT®. There have been significant improvements and modernization to our 2-Day course that would be beneficial for all Certified Instructors to attend and see in person. The 2016 Summit this August will provide all Certified Instructors with the new 2-Day course materials and look into the new layout. Stay tuned for more details on these improvements in a later post!
What does TapRooT® recommend? We highly recommend that each instructor look at their schedule for this year and plan to attend the 2016 Summit in San Antonio this August 1-5. You will be able to go through recertification early, to continue teaching in 2017, not need recertification until 2018, and get a first-look at the new 2-Day course. Besides, you don’t want to miss the 2016 Summit and all that we have in store for you!
If you have questions or concerns regarding your recertification, please contact Michelle Wishoun (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Linda Unger (email@example.com) or call our office (865) 539-2139 for assistance.
