Kinesio Taping® Certification
KT3 Course, also called Kinesio Taping® Certification Course – The Kinesio Taping® Certification Course combines KT1 and KT2 coursework with extra lab time for attendees to practice their skills on a variety of clinical applications. KT3 can be designed to allow the instructor to cater towards specific practitioner protocols, clinical applications, and practitioner population and address specific professions (pediatrics, hand therapy, sports medicine, chiropractic, etc.) or clinical conditions (stroke, scoliosis, lymphedema, etc.). KT3 can also be set up as a general orthopedic course and may incorporate any or all of the following: unusual tapings, variations on standard tapings, problem solving, and “live patients”. This course is a minimum of 8 hours, but may be expanded by 2-8 additional hours depending on the instructor and/or the focus of the seminar. Upon completion of this course and prerequisite KT1, KT2 seminar, attendees will be eligible to request and take the exam to become a Certified Kinesio Taping® Practitioner (CKTP). Note: Students can request to take the exam but will not receive CKTP certificate until they graduate.
