How do I register?
Payment must accompany a registration form. All fees MUST be received prior to start of course. Presently we cannot accept credit cards: MasterCard, VISA. This facilty will be introduced a little later. You have to do a NEFT/RTGS or internet wire transfer.
Do the courses need to be taken in sequential order?
When undertaking the McKenzie Courses, you must begin with Part A and finish with Part D. Parts B and C may be taken in any order between A and D.
eg A-B-C-D or A-C-B-D
Do you offer group discounts?
Presently we cannot offer such discounts, although we have it in mind for the future. Already the courses are running at almost 50% of the international fees. For educational institutions who would be willing to organize the courses in your premises, we could reduce the organising expenses, plus give you all the benefits as the course sponsor.
What are audit fees and how much are they?
When you have not completed any part of the MDT Certification process within 2 years, you need to complete an audit of the previous course that is, repeat the previous course at 50% of the tuition fee. Audit can also be where you take a refresher course to keep your name in the reference list.
Proof of when the course was previously attended may be required if outside India.
Is there any pre-course preparation necessary?
Not really. Neither do you need any prior attendance to any manual therapy courses a necessity.
What would happen if I miss some hours on the course?
Missed hours on a course: When a participant misses a day(s), or any portion of a day throughout the course, under no circumstances will a course certificate be provided to that participant. We are required to verify course completion. The participant will not be eligible to continue with the next Part of the MDT Program of Certification until the previous course requirement has been completed. The participant can complete the day(s) or hours missed within one year of the course dates at no additional fee and will then receive the certificate for full course credit. If the participant does not complete this requirement within one year, he or she will be required to pay fees as follows:
Less than half the course missed - pay the audit fee
Half or more of the course missed - pay in full
Do you offer continuing education credits?
The McKenzie course certificates carry credits globally. However in India we still do not have the system where Physical Therapists in practise have to continue to take credits to maintain yourself in practise.
