These courses are available for everyone's continued education and are also open to those who are not attempting certification. Please check for any particular prerequisites for each course. Certification of one level does not necessarily have to be completed in a specific order to take courses listed under another certification level unless the course has a prerequisite. However, you cannot test for the Master Equinology® Equine Body Worker Certification level until you have tested for the Equinology® Equine Body Worker  Level II Certification rank. Our certification levels range from 300+hours to 2200+hours.

For those students who feel they have already met some of the requirements, testing will be arranged to challenge the individual course. There is an administrative $100 testing fee for all courses challenged which is accomplished through video and outlined format. It is not our intention that all courses be completed through Equinology ®. Our program has an outline that we feel will enable students to practice at their full potential. If you have special state requirements, please contact us so we can tailor a program for you. Check with your state veterinary board for its existing laws of practice.
