General Course Information

HOW LONG ARE THE COURSES?

The Equine Practitioner Raindrop Technique course is 47 hours in total and is a combination of face-to-face learning (4 days) and logged sessions (15 hours).

What are logged sessions?  Following the face-to-face component, you will return home and perform 15 Raindrop Techniques (on dogs for the Canine course or horses for the Equine course).  What a great way to introduce the Raindrop Technique to animal owners in your local community!  The logged sessions will be self-paced and you will have 12 months in which to complete them after attending the face-to-face component.  You will be required to submit all of the completed forms for these logged sessions, and video one of these sessions for marking.

HOW DO I BECOME A QUALIFIED PRACTITIONER?

Once ALL elements of the course are completed and you have passed all written and practical assessments (including the marking of the logged sessions), you will receive a Certificate of Competence in your respective qualification (canine or equine) and be eligible for practitioner insurance plus registration with IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapies).

 

WHO CAN ATTEND THE COURSES?

The Practitioner Courses are open to both Young Living members as well as non-members.  

 

ARE THERE ANY PRE-REQUISITES FOR ATTENDING THE COURSES?

For the Canine Practitioner Raindrop Technique course, you do not need to have prior experience with essential oils, dogs, or the Raindrop Technique as this will all be taught in the course.

For the Equine Practitioner Raindrop Technique course, you do not need to have prior experience with essential oils or the Raindrop Technique HOWEVER a certain level of horse handling skills is required.  This could be a qualification (such as a Certificate) in Horse Handling Skills / Groundwork Skills / Horse Management Skills from a Registered Equestrian Training Organisation such as Equestrian Australia (or similar) OR submit a written document outlining your horse handling experience in the last 5 years.  Examples of relevant experience are:

  • Working at an equestrian centre where duties involve the handling and moving of horses

  • Owning your own horse/s for a minimum of 5 years

  • Being a strapper/groomer for an equestrian rider/athlete

 
WHERE ARE THE COURSES HELD?

At this stage, the Raindrop Technique Practitioner courses will be held in South East Queensland (Australia) only.  You will need to travel to this location to attend.  The reason for this is to keep the course cost as minimal as possible. 

If travel restrictions continue, we will look at running these courses online however this will be a last resort as this is a technique that is best taught in person.

 

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE COURSE?

We are still doing the costing for these courses and hope to have it listed here soon.
