Foundations of TTM

Program Details

The Foundations of TTM program is open to the public, and has no prerequisites.

The program consists of 25 modules offered over a period of approximately two years. Each module comprises a two-day workshop followed by a three-hour review class, for a total of 375 hours of teaching time.

Modules must be attended in real-time, whether online or in person. Lecture-based modules may be attended online or in person, while practical modules must be attended in person. (Practical modules will be combined into longer workshop intensives to make it easier for out-of-town students to attend.) Online review classes are held a few weeks after each workshop.

Students are required to complete homework assignments and individual practice sessions outside of class, and to pass regular tests as well as a final written and oral examination.

The program also offers clinical diagnosis and treatment experience under the guidance of expert TTM doctors and practitioners.

Students may attend the entire program or individual modules, and may complete modules at any SKI center to fulfill program requirements.

Students who attend the entire program, complete all required assignments and practice sessions, and pass all tests and examinations will receive certification from Sorig Khang International.
