On-site Workshop and Certification
For those who cannot devote 10-12 weeks (which does include flexibility during the practicum phase) at one time to becoming a certified instructor via the Instructor Training Course (ITC), PATH Intl. offers a self-directed alternative. Candidates complete a multi-step educational process consisting of two phases. In order to achieve Registered Instructor Status both Phase One and Phase Two must be completed successfully.
OSWC Phase One
Phase One is self-paced, completed from home as an independent study program.
PATH Int’l Center Accreditation Training on-line course
PATH Int’l Instructor Self-Study on-line course
Registered Instructor Open Book Exam
Completion of 25 teaching hours under the guidance or direct supervision of a PATH Int’l Certified Instructor
OSWC Phase Two
Phase Two is the on-site teaching phase of the certification process.

Here you will use the knowledge gained in Phase One while obtaining hands-on experience teaching therapeutic riding.
A two and a half day educational workshop with hands-on learning is required prior to the final step of certification.
This phase culminates in the On-Site Certification in which candidates demonstrate their riding ability and instruction to a class of at least two students with disabilities.
Phase One is managed by the PATH Int’l office & requires a maximum six-month time frame to complete.
To register for the Phase Two workshop and/or certification, please complete the information requested in this form, and send it together with the required fee AND a copy of your Confirmation of Instructor-In-Training status letter from PATH Intl. to:
