  • Complete BodyTalk Fundamentals with any Certified BodyTalk Instructor (CBI).
  • Become and maintain IBA Standard Membership.

    • BodyTalk Fundamentals (again) at a reduced cost (Depending on your membership level, you may be eligible for up to 75% discount on retaking an IBA seminar. Members only have to pay 25% of the cost of the course to monitor, OR
    • attend the BodyTalk Fundamentals Integration class with any CBI.
  • Complete and document at least fifty (50) BodyTalk sessions, with a minimum of fifteen (15) different people, without the use of protocol charts or manuals.
